Asa Alonzo Allen
"The Miracle Man"
A.A. Allen drew more controversy than any other of the Voice of Healing evangelists. He was severely criticized for his dramatics and sensationalism, and he was totally denounced for his personal habits. The media scorned him to the fullest, and denominational leaders banished him while ordering others to distance themselves from him. Nevertheless, some consider his to have been one of the most important revivalists to emerge during the Voice of Healing revival. It is also important to note that those who criticized Allen were far less productive in the ministry than was Allen.
