Dr. Tony Moon’s From Plowboy to Pentecostal Bishop appears at an opportune juncture in the history of Pentecostal historiography. In recent years, scholars from around the world have “discovered” Bishop King and his seminal work as an early Pentecostal leader. Now, with Dr. Moon’s excellent and complete biography of his life, the stature of “the Pentecostal aristocrat” as a theologian, journalist, educator, and churchman will only grow and expand as newer generations get to know the man who defined what it meant to be a Pentecostal Bishop in the early days of the movement.

The life and ministry of Bishop Joseph H King comes alive in this thoroughly researched and chronicled
biography. Dr. Tony Moon has admirably presented the real life of this Pentecostal leader who was often viewed as “starchy” by some of his contemporaries in the Pentecostal Holiness Church. As one who has always admired Bishop King and his family, I joyfully commend this book to your library. This is a must read for ministers and laity in the International Pentecostal Holiness Church and beyond!
