Veteran journalist Hunter James covered the PTL's scandalous story for the "Atlanta Journal-Constitution" from the first report of Bakker's double life until Falwell left the bankrupt ministry in South Carolina. "Smile Pretty and Say Jesus" is James's wry, personal account of the struggle for control of the PTL enterprise.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Author James was along for the ride as the tales of greed and sin began to unfold, and with this book he takes us along, too. . . . A highly readable, entertaining piece of personal journalism.--"Anniston Star"


"Smile Pretty and Say Jesus" (that's what PTL audiences were urged to do) captures the sideshow atmosphere surrounding the final months of Jim's and Tammy's tenure, and it provides some solid, detailed information on the various warring fundamentalist sects. There are other, more straightforward accounts of the PTL; this one is more fun to read.--"The State" (Columbia, SC)


A well-crafted, well-thought-out piece of literature. Anyone who picks up this book merely for a look at the PTL Ministry will be pleasantly surprised; anyone who picks up this book for a look at life will not be disappointed.--"The Pilot" (Southern Pines, NC)
