Synopsis

Profile of Tammy Faye Bakker, who, along with former husband Jim Bakker, revolutionized evangelism by teaching that lavish living was not contrary to Christian values. Jim and Tammy Faye became celebrities with their television show "The PTL Club" and contributions enabled them to establish the Christian theme park, Heritage USA. When the national spotlight fell on Jim's adulterous affair, their empire started to unravel. In 1989, Jim was tried and convicted of fraud and given a 45-year sentence, later reduced to 8. In 1993, after a 30-year marriage, Tammy Faye and Jim were divorced and a year later, Tammy Faye married Roe Messner.
