Item description for Oral Exam: A Former Student's Look at the People and Decisions That Influenced Oral Roberts and His Ministry by Howie Gardner & Rev Howie Gardner...

'Oral Exam' is an interesting, straightforward look at the life and times of Oral Roberts and his ministry through the eyes of a former student of Oral Roberts University.

Publishers Description
There is a generation that remembers Oral Roberts, the dynamic evangelist of the ?50s, his huge tent revivals and healing crusades. Famous and ?bigger than life, ? the fiery Pentecostal preacher drew crowds of thousands while the healing lines grew longer. Oral Roberts owned the television airwaves and established one of the most successful itinerant ministries in the world, headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Then, another generation knew him as the man who founded a unique university based on solid biblical principles and his ?whole man? spiritual concepts. One student, the author of this book, attended that university and now writes of his personal perceptions of the man, the preacher, and the visionary he knew.

Reviews - What do customers think about Oral Exam?

A true account of ORU's stormy years from 1977-1987  Jul 6, 2005
I was a student at ORU from 1978-82, what are now called the turbulent years. Along with many other students, I graduated as a very wounded soul because of what happened at ORU. Gardner's book is the first real attempt to explain how and why ORU lost its original focus. This book has given me a better perspective on ORU and its founder, for whom I still have respect. I agree with Gardner that it is a terrible shame that Oral is associated in many minds now with cheesy TV evangelists who are out for money; his legacy is not that at all; much of the money he raised sits at 7777 South Lewis Avenue, where he built a major university out of nothing. The book also provides hope that ORU may one day regain its former stature as a top-notch university. If ORU is serious about reconciling with its scattered alumni, it will have to face the truth and honestly discuss the issues Gardner raises. (For those of us who left bewildered in 1982, I guess it's better late than never.) But even if there is no grand reconciliation, Gardner's book is a godsend to those of us who have found only superficial coverage of our unforgettable ORU years.
He passed the Exam  Jun 2, 2005
I was actually Howie Gardner's roommate at ORU (mentioned on page 56). As such, I may have some positive bias towards my friend, the author.

This was an easy, entertaining and engaging read. Howie engages in a lot of speculation as to factors which influenced Oral Roberts, however his reasoning makes sense. He also goes down a lot of rabbit trails that seem to be unrelated to Oral, but that is part of what makes this book interesting. He ties together a lot of loose ends that is as much a commentary on contemporary Christianity as it is on Oral Roberts.

If you want to gain some insight into what is behind the man Oral and the University named after him, then you will enjoy this book.
