I bought this book at Always Amazing for $1.00 because it was funny. It was near the 3.5" floppy disk storage boxes, the 2011 day planners, and a bunch of expired batteries. I bought it for the same reason you buy Ronald McDonald holiday plates at Goodwill or the Angela Lansbury lifestyle video on VHS: because it's ridiculous and because it's a laugh.But then I read it, and it's actually great. It's not particularly well-written or even coherent all the time, but it's incredibly earnest, affecti...
"Jim was always good with money. That must be the Jewish part of him." That was one of many unintentionally hilarious lines Tammy wrote in her autobiography.I got a copy of this through my office because Tammy lent her face to our Off-the-Streets Club for troubled Chicago kids here.

I hope there really is a heaven, if only for the thought that somewhere out there, perched on a cloud, this lady's sharing divine mascara with Quentin Crisp.RIP, Tammy-Faye!
I was glad I read this, since I was also part of the Christian radio scene in the 1970s, and subject to public scrutiny. I was mildly surprised at her ambivalence concerning him...that she hadn't fully forgiven him yet, but it was a lot to forgive a husband. By contrast, his biography seemed very humble and redemptive.

Tammy Faye tells the story of her childhood in Minnesota, falling in love with Jim Bakker,the rise of the PTL empire, and then the disastrous downfall of that ministry. An interesting read.
a very special book by a very special lady
Curiousity is the only reason I read this.
