Publisher's Description

Author Karen Spears Zacharias believes Christians have been paying good money for a false doctrine---the Cash and Cadillac Gospel. With humor and wit in this Will Jesus Buy Me a Double-Wide? Ebook, Zacharias unpacks story after story of those who use the name of God as a means to living their own “good life,” as well as some unlikely folks whose genuine faith has led them to a different understanding of wealth.

Author Bio

Karen Spears Zacharias had her first kiss in a trailer, smoked her first and last cigarette in a trailer, asked Jesus into her heart on bended knee in a trailer, fell madly in love in a trailer (a couple of different times), and gave birth to her firstborn child in a trailer. While writing this book, she became unemployed and bought a flat-screen plasma TV. She and her husband, Tim, plan to retire to a double-wide with a firm foundation and a sturdy pier at Point Clear, Alabama.

Publisher's Weekly

acharias (Where’s Your Jesus Now?) pours on the Southern charm in this not-so-gentle diatribe against what she calls the “golden-calf theology” in America. “There are a lot of folks prancing around treating the Bible like an algebra book and God like their personal banker,” Zacharias writes, and she is out to find them. She lambastes folks like an unnamed evangelist and adults who exploit children to make money off the faithful, while also sharing stories like that of Sister Schubert and an unnamed Marine, who live with generosity and faith. Zacharias will draw chortles with her colloquialisms and colorful language—“he has a buttload of money”—but she also exposes how “we’ve started mistaking Christianity for capitalism.” The book is long on stories but short on theology, pointed in criticism yet lost in indignation. Some may wish for a more reasoned approach, but none will argue with the solution: “Stop imagining all the ways in which the universe can serve you and start figuring out how you can serve others.” (Mar.)
