PTL: The Rise and Fall of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker's Evangelical Empire - John Wigger

Wow! All I knew about Jim and Tammy Faye Baker prior to reading this book was that he was a TV evangelist and she inspired a t-shirt that said "I ran into Tammy Faye at the mall". (Which you can still buy, I looked it up on the internet, lol.

I had never heard of Heritage Park or any of the things he had done. I did know he went to jail and Tammy Faye cried a lot.

This was a very comprehensive and informative read for me. I learned a LOT! And I found it to be a very interesting read. The author spent a lot of time researching which is evident if you read the book.

Thanks to Oxford University Press and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
