When Jim Bakker was convicted in 1989 of defrauding followers of his PTL (Praise The Lord) ministry, his son Jay lost everything. With his father in prision, his family shattered by divorce, and his name forever linked to a nations scandal, Jay Bakker's already bizarre life came completely unglued. Here is the poignant pereble of a young boy whose life was almost destroyed by scandal. This prodigal son story of a journey back from ruin has given Jay his hard-earned understanding of the real meaning of grace. In this candid account he takes on the leaders of the Christian Right who condemmed his father even while advocating forgiveness and redemption. His gripping tale will surprise anyone who has followed this rise, fall, and rebirth of this unique American family.
