Oral Roberts: An American Life by David Edwin Harrell, Oral Roberts

"This book may give you the best opportunity of deciding the truth about me and the ministry I hold so dear." — Oral Roberts

"Among several biographies of Oral Roberts, the most recent, most accurate, and best documented is Oral Roberts: An American Life, an objective, impressive study... " — New York Review of Books

"Oral Roberts: An American Life is more than the story of a well-known evangelist and educator. It is the story of a part of the American religious life that not many Americans know or understand.... Dr. Harrell has researched thoroughly and written superbly." — Billy Graham

"... a first-rate biography, one which should give pause to Roberts' supporters and critics alike.... Roberts' first scholarly biographer has done a beautiful job." — Allen Boyer, Newsday
