History 4972: Faith Healers, Prosperity Preachers, and Televangelists in American Religion: Google Books

Google Books Tricks

  • Use the lone asterisk to create fill-in-the-blank searches, such as "preaching * prosperity" or "faith movement * Hagin"
  • Search for a name in the AUTHOR field; add other words, phrases or partial phrases in text fields.  Ex. Kenneth Copeland in AUTHOR, dollar in With ALL the Words.
    • Search for one word/idea in the TITLE field, another in text.  Ex. world war in title, salvation army as phrase in text...and vice versa!
    • Use publication date limits to find books published during a certain time span.  Ex. Billy Sunday * revival in phrase, publication dates between 1920 and 1940
      • Look for the Find In Library link when you find a good book.  Some books let you see more online than others.
