Gerard Thomas Straub, a former producer of the 700 Club, reveals exclusive, previously unpublished evidence that Pat Robertson believes he is in direct communication with God and that he has been personally appointed by the Almighty to be the chief usher at Jesus' imminent Second Coming. "Salvation for Sale" takes us behind the scenes at the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN). We get to know Robertson as the viewers never see him: as a power-hungry administrator who controls the lives of his employees 'with an iron fist' even while his paternal, kindly television persona convinces the American public of his fairness and brotherly love. This book raises serious questions about the effects Robertson's beliefs could have on national and global affairs. How would a head of state conduct government affairs if he is convinced that he is Christ's anointed, with all the self-righteousness that phrase implies? As Straub says, 'I'd be very concerned about a man sitting next to a button who believes Jesus is telling him to press that button'.
