More Than Golden Thrones and Big Pink Hair
What one of our critics learned from watching a week of TBN
"All I knew," Todd wrote recently at ThinkChristian, "was what I’d read, heard or glimpsed while channel surfing—headlines about mixing money and ministry, a reputation for being cheesy, a talk-show set with golden thrones, and some woman with big pink hair."
But Todd notes that when his week-long experiment ended, "Yes, I’d seen some cheesy stuff. I’d listened to pastors who certainly mixed money and ministry. But I’ll admit that I was pleasantly surprised by some programs" -- including Precious Memories with Bill Gaither. Kingdom Connection, and Ancient Secrets of the Bible.
