Publisher's Summary

What does it really mean to be blessed by God? With Southern charm and razor-sharp wit, in Will Jesus Buy Me a Double-Wide?, author Karen Spears Zacharias shows how the prosperity gospel has led us astray from true Christianity and helped create people and churches focused on greed.

Zacharias unpacks story after story of families and individuals using the name of God as a means to living their own good life. You'll hear shocking tales of those who exploit the gospel for their own gain, and of mega-evangelists who live in million-dollar mansions with children groomed from the cradle to sell the message of Christ while their parents rake in the cash. Discover churches that have modeled themselves on Wall Street and unbridled materialism, and see what is happening to them now. Is this the good life?

You'll also meet some unlikely folks who live with genuine biblical integrity - people who know that God is more than some cosmic genie who gives them an easy life, a fat bank account, and a second home in an exotic location. Come discover stories about authentic Christianity and the true good life in Will Jesus Buy Me a Double-Wide?

What the Critics Say

“I have been a ‘have’ and a ‘have not’ in my life. I have found in my walk with the Lord, as Karen illustrates so well in these beautiful stories, that the riches he desires for us have nothing to do with money. I love a writer that's not afraid to walk with real people and speak the truth of their lives.” (Jeff Foxworthy)

"If Fanny Flagg got religion, she’d be Karen Spears Zacharias. Zacharias goes after the prosperity gospel not with a theological rebuttal but with stories about people who are living the real gospel: people who’ve loved big, lost big, and become ‘the least of these’ for the sake of Christ, and who are spiritually richer than any slick TV preacher will ever be. She is trailer-trash wonderful, a guilty pleasure: like eating chicken-fried steak with mac & cheese during Bible study." (Susan E. Isaacs, author of Angry Conversations with God)
