I have one (1) month in which to write a 7-page church history paper on an individual who lived after 1500 AD. There are no real requirements, other than that I have to reference at least one biography of the person and read at least one major work by the person. And I’m stumped.
I really wanted to find somebody in the 20th century to focus on, preferrably within the charismatic tradition (you have to admit that’d be fun to write about), but I’m having some trouble finding somebody that will work. Because I have only a month, I have to find a person who is well-known enough that I can get all the materials I need from my school’s library. I just don’t have the time to John Alexander Dowie was my first choice, and John Wimber was my second. For Dowie, I couldn’t find anything by, and for Wimber, I couldn’t find anything about. Can anybody offer a suggestion?
If I find I’m unable to do the 20th century, I’ll have to fall back to somebody “normal,” like John Calvin, or Jonathan Edwards, or even John Wesley. (Heaven help me find a notable Christian of history with a name like Bill…)
