Against All Odds by Wendy AlecOver the past decade, GOD TV has become one of the most significant players in the global expansion of Christian television. However, this account, by one of the stations founders, has little in the way of information about how this happened: rather than a considered account of the stations growth, we are treated instead to sentimental family anecdotes and vignettes about how God helped at difficult moments. The cast of big-name evangelists is of interest, though: Benny Hinn, Morris Cerullo, Pat Robertson, Rick Joyner, Cindy Jacobs, Colin Dye, and Matthew Ashimolowo are among those offering encouragement and help along the way. The theology is charismatic and influenced by the Prosperity Gospel (Alec and her husband started out with Rhema in South Africa), although the latter is not emphasised. The book features a rather belligerent and strange prophetic epilogue, inspired by the 7/7 bombings, which looks forward to some sort of Christian dictator ruling the UK with a rod of iron.
The book is also direly written, with words in block capitals for no reason, frequent exclamation marks and irritating appeals to the dear reader. The word literally also appears a lot, such as a friend who was literally the salt of the earth. The author also appears to think that the Plymouth Brethren were the Pilgrim Fathers.
