9780062516992: Son of a Preacher Man: My Search for Grace in the Shadows

When Jim Bakker was convicted in 1989 of defrauding followers of his PTL (Praise The Lord) ministry of $158 million, Jay Bakker lost everything. With his father in prison, his family shattered by divorce, and his name forever linked to a national scandal, Jay's already bizarre life came completely unglued. Here is the story a parable of striking import of a young boy whose life was almost destroyed by televangelist excess and greed. In his new street ministry, Revolution, Jay has found a unique way of preaching the gospel that is tailored to those most like him, the tattooed and pierced youth of downtown Atlanta. By advocating God's love for everyone, regardless of past sins, Jay found his path back to the faith and picked up a large and growing following along the way. This is a hard-hitting account of finding grace in the shadows of the Right, where men like Jerry Falwell and Oral Roberts turned their backs on the Bakkers even while advocating forgiveness and redemption. About the Authors:Jay Bakker, 25, has been featured in several recent articles, including an acclaimed Rolling Stone feature, USA Today, and numerous other publications. He lives with his wife, Amanda, in Atlanta, where he leads Bible classes in his basement, and ministers to youth who live on the street.
