-- The story of a man who lost everything (ministry, wealth, family) only to discover something much more important ... his faith in a loving and forgiving God.
-- Includes Bakker's insights about the dangers of prosperity theology and his renunciation of his former excessive lifestyle of his PTL days.
As a forty-eight-year-old man sentenced to forty-five years in prison on charges related to his PTL/Heritage USA ministry, Jim Bakker was effectively handed a death sentence. Decimated by prison, he had to face the desertion of his wife, the loss of his ministry, his savings, his dignity, and his reputation. It was in this environment that the Lord brought him to repentance and began to reshape him, giving him perspective on his former life.
Now with honesty and frankness, Jim shares the intimate details of his incarceration, his divorce, and the mistakes he made along the way. This abridged edition of his bestselling story also contains his candid and hard-hitting insights on the dangers of prosperity theology and the seductive nature of power. I Was Wrong is an important book for anyone struggling with lust, money, power, greed, divorce, and brokenness.
