An inspirational story of a stammering Cherokee boy with tuberculosis who grew up to build a TV empire, found a great university, and change the way we think about God. The life of Oral Roberts, written by his daughter Roberta Roberts Potts.
Larger-than-life personalities sometimes are defined by perceptions rather than reality. Pioneering evangelists are often portrayed by Hollywood actors, and mocked by media figures who do not share the same worldview. In the case of Oral Roberts, the light his ministry shed on the American landscape sometimes obscures the man. Now, a remarkable memoir from his daughter, Roberta Roberts Potts, illuminates the personality behind the healing crusades, international ministry, and landmark university. A portrayal of a father-daughter relationship written by his previously silent daughter, this book provides a gripping peak into the life of a compelling figure — one of the 20th century’s leading religious and cultural icons.
