Wearing a tailored suit and holding a bible, Bart Baxter walks out of prison with one goal in mind–to make money and lots of it. Follow along with Bart as he exploits religion for his own personal gain.
Humor. Suspense. Plus, Stephan Shephard. Experience it all in Televangelist.
From the back cover:
“Sure, a boring church can stay afloat by getting a few lonely saps together every week to gossip and exchange business cards, but for a church to thrive?”
Bart tucks in his shirt and zips up his new pants—they’re white.
“For a church to thrive, Julie, it needs to be entertaining. It needs music, it needs laughter, and most of all it needs a leader to look up to.”
Bart grabs a white jacket to match his pants and slides into it. He continues his lecture while surveying himself in the mirror.
“It needs a shepherd who offers them reassurance every week. A person who tells them that in this great big scary world, everything is gonna be alright.”
Bart studies his face in the mirror. “That person isn’t God, Julie.” He dabs oil from his forehead with a towel.
“That person is me.”
About Ron Johnson
As the creator of the satirical blog The Jim Bakker Foodbucket Fanpage, author Ron Johnson knows what makes televangelists tick. Armed with biting humor and a keen eye for hypocrisy, Ron earned a rabid following of supporters and detractors, all chomping at the bit for new material.
With life nipping at his heels, Ron ultimately bowed out from his own blog even while it continued reaching new comedic heights.
Now, Ron returns to the scene of the crime to give it another go with his new book Televangelist. Mixing humor, reality and suspense, Ron writes an original tale to be enjoyed by the religious and non-religious alike.
