Publisher's Description

What does it really mean to be blessed by God? With Southern charm and razor-sharp wit in this Will Jesus Buy Me a Double-Wide? Ebook, author Karen Spears Zacharias shows how the “prosperity” gospel has led us astray from true Christianity and helped create people and churches focused on greed. Zacharias unpacks story after story of families and individuals using the name of God as a means to living their own “good life.” You’ll hear shocking tales of those who exploit the gospel for their own gain, and mega-evangelists who live in million-dollar mansions with children groomed from the cradle to sell the message of Christ while their parents rake in the cash. Discover churches that have modeled themselves on Wall Street and unbridled materialism, and see what is happening to them now. Is this the good life? You’ll also meet some unlikely folks who live with genuine biblical integrity. People who know that God is more than some cosmic genie who gives them an easy life, a fat bank account, and a second home in an exotic location. Come discover stories about authentic Christianity and the true “good life” in Will Jesus Buy Me a Double-Wide?

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.)
