Overview

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?

Meet the Author

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.

    Don't let the title fool you.

    This book has stories of inspiring people. The name of the book made me think that it would be more comical, but I didn't find a lot of humor in it. The author gets on her soapbox often about evangelism and is not shy in pointing fingers at people who are radically evangelical. Although I support her stance, she seemed to get hung up on her point about evangelism. With that being said, the people in this book are inspiring. Their stories made me contemplate on my faith and how I live my life. Reading about their lives and what they've done, what they're doing and their views of Christianity; it makes me want to be a better Christian.
