    PDF/EPUB Elmer Gantry PDF/EPUB Ø ã pnoy.me elmer pdf, gantry ebok, Elmer Gantry EpubBigoted Bully in Beliefs Biz Flatulistic televangelist farming for fundsA timeless albeit rather tame tale of a bigoted bully who seems close to insanity at times abuses his power in the name of religion serially succumbing to temptations of the flesh and the pitfalls of arrogant pride I frankly expected a powerful condemnation but then recalled this novel is set in the early 1900s It's shameful that the charlatans have only worsened in this country And yet it could be even worse a world in which the USA has hoisted a bigoted bullying unbalanced demagogue to political power Then would it be ironic to say that life trumps fiction?

    PDF/EPUB Elmer Gantry PDF/EPUB Ø ã pnoy.me elmer pdf, gantry ebok, Elmer Gantry EpubJust before the 4th of July I finished Elmer Gantry It turned out to be one of the greatest novels I have ever read Elmer Gantry published in 1927 was so much complex so much biting and chilling in its description of the worst parts of the American psyche so much timeless than I ever imagined it would be I expected a comic book story and dated prose I got instead vivid characters and lines of text I found myself re reading per their beautiful structure and perfect descriptions This book isn't just as it's usually simply described adventures of a golden tongued evangelist who lives a live of hypocrisy and self indulgence This also isn't a novel whose primary sole purpose is to attack the clergy Elmer Gantry is a searingly accurate profile of the USA one that still stands oh so many years later I finished the book and sat staring out the window for 10 minutes I didn't know whether to laugh or weepWhat's so disheartening about this book for me is as noted in the afterword by Ma

    PDF/EPUB Elmer Gantry PDF/EPUB Ø ã pnoy.me elmer pdf, gantry ebok, Elmer Gantry EpubOn the surface this is a story of a bad guy made all the evil by his using the name of God to hoodwink people and lift himself up for public admiration He is the living embodiment of a wolf in sheep's clothing Unfortunately this is not a book that can be read on the surface and be done with Elmer Gantry isn't a cut and dried villain On the contrary it is his very humanness that makes his story eual parts repulsive and irresistible We see in Gantry's hypocrisy our own inclination to INTEND to be better than we ever actually are You can only hate him as far as you hate

    PDF/EPUB Elmer Gantry PDF/EPUB Ø ã pnoy.me elmer pdf, gantry ebok, Elmer Gantry EpubI've read that this novel caused uite a furor when it was released even being denounced by Billy Sunday Well I wouldn't know I wasn't there but it wouldn't surprise me as I remember when some Christians got very excited about the movie The Last Temptation of Christ All they accomplished in my opinion was drawing attention to the movie than it would otherwise have garneredAs for Elmer Gantry I am a Christian and this book does arguably take a pretty dim view of some or possibly most Christians Gantry is basically a ne'er do well who starts out in law and is side tracked by alcohol and his womanizing ways He is or less accidentally ordained as a Baptist minister Later on he becomes a Methodist Gantry manages to destroy several lives throughout the book and leaves a trail of broken people among those who are close to him For a while he becomes the manager and lover of Sharon Falconer a character who seems to be loosely based on Aimee Semple

    PDF/EPUB Elmer Gantry PDF/EPUB Ø ã pnoy.me elmer pdf, gantry ebok, Elmer Gantry EpubA truly delightful novel Lewis takes obvious pleasure from poking fun at religion – and he takes on the various church denominations and destroys them with attacks from multiple positions He exposes hypocrisy through Elmer Gantry – who supposedly is a protector of morality while enhancing his career by vapid publicity name calling and disdaining the women who fall in love with him He also ignores his family while pursuing his goalsThis book exposes the lust for power behind the evangelical movements and traditional churches It is also about the cult of personality – in this case Elmer Gantry This is even abundantly clear with the Sharon Falconer episode Actually the book looses some of the momentum I feel after the sudden death dubious at that of Sharon midway through the story Nevertheless what follows is Elmer’s continuing journey through the religion business Elmer switches convictions whenever there is opportunity for his advancement There are a
