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.
acharias (Wheres 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 languagehe has a buttload of moneybut she also exposes how weve 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.

She calls to task those who use the gospel for their own financial advantage by misinterpreting the word. She helps us understand that the true blessings in life are not necessarily monetary, but are based in relationships, fulfilling purposes and experiencing the many gifts that God gives to us daily that sometimes go unnoticed.
