Abstract

Phoebe Palmer’s influence on women in ministry and the significant role she played in the Holiness movement helped prepare the way for Carrie Judd Montgomery. The impact of Palmer’s theology of sanctification on Montgomery’s theology of healing is one way of illustrating how Montgomery drew upon her theology and advanced it into the American Divine Healing and Pentecostal movements. This article demonstrates how Montgomery stands out as one of the most significant female healing evangelists to take Holiness themes into Pentecostalism.
