In 1986, Julia Duin moved to Houston as the new religion writer for the Houston Chronicle. She visited the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Houston?s blighted East End and fell in love with its gorgeous music and charismatic worship. After she met Graham Pulkingham, the spellbinding priest who had led Redeemer into a powerful renewal starting in 1964, Duin became convinced the world needed to know the story of this immensely gifted man and the church that was half-inspired, yet half-haunted by its illustrious past. But as she began investigating Redeemer, some people began warning her there was a darker history behind Pulkingham that few people knew. In Days of Fire and Glory, Duin, now an award-winning journalist, reveals the details of the scandal that rocked the charismatic and Christian community movements, not to mention the Episcopal Church. Through deft storytelling and meticulous research (including 182 interviews), she provides a fascinating portrait of the glorious days of the renewal and its sister movements within Catholic and pentecostal churches; days when the Spirit?s fire did fall and many within the baby boomer generation were drawn to God.
