Item description for Pat Robertson: An American Life by David John Marley...

A portrait of the 700 Club host and co-founder of the Christian Coalition considers his role as a reviled figure in the secular world and a formidable role model among Christian fundamentalists, in a profile that lauds his achievements while questioning some of his decisions.

Publishers Description
This is the first professional, independent biography in twenty years of Pat Robertson: founder of both the Christian Coalition and the Christian Broadcasting Network, host of the daily TV show The 700 Club, and former presidential candidate. Robertson s Christian Coalition led the Republican take over of Congress in 1994 and his leadership of the Christian Right helped elect George W. Bush. After the 2004 presidential election, pollsters and scholars claimed that the Republican party had become America s first religious party. A big part of the reason that the GOP became identified with evangelical Christianity is Pat Robertson. Marley attempts to present a balanced view of his subject in which Robertson s detractors will find reasons to appreciate some of his contributions while his fans will confront tough questions about some of his past actions. More than just a political biography, the book also explains his theology, business dealings, and personal life in a readable narrative style."

Reviews - What do customers think about Pat Robertson: An American Life?

Very Impressive Research  Jul 21, 2007
I found this book a great read! Dr. Marley presents the facts of Robertson's life from his extensive research. What I found most surprising and refreshing were the excerpts from the personal interview Robertson gave to the author. This was an open and honest discussion regarding Robertson's life and beliefs.
a book bound to be disappointing   Jul 6, 2007
the book was less biography and seemed more of a collection of old news stories, gossip and complaints with nothing really new to offer. A readable prose was undone by too many factual errors, unattributed sources in personal attacks and innuendo. unfortunately, the book failed to rise to the professional standards of a work of either a genuine historian or a journalist. too bad.
