Marjoe( Visual )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marjoe: Filmed before televangelism became a phenomenon, this biography/expose details the rise, fall, and self-exposure of Marjoe Gortner, a one-time child evangelist and church tent preacher. Marjoe would rather have been a rock star-with a different upbringing might have been-but this is as close as he can get. That he manipulates the spiritual passions of his audience is subordinate to the satisfaction of performing and connecting emotionally. Even as he spouts meaningless religious rhetoric, and takes the money of those expecting miracles and salvation, is he not giving the people exactly what they want, performing the spontaneous and charismatic rites of Pentecostal Christianity in a manner that is skillful and respectful of the traditions and expectations of that faith?
