Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Julie Lyons was working as a crime reporter when she followed a hunch into the South Dallas ghetto. She wasn’t hunting drug dealers, but drug addicts who had been supernaturally healed of their addictions. Was there a church in the most violent part of the city that prayed for addicts and got results?

At The Body of Christ Assembly, a rundown church on an out-of-the-way street, Lyons found the story she was looking for. The minister welcomed criminals, prostitutes, and street people–anyone who needed God. He prayed for the sick, the addicted, and the demon-possessed, and people were supernaturally healed.

Lyons’s story landed on the front page of the Dallas Times Herald. But she got much more than just a great story, she found an unlikely spiritual home. Though the parishioners at The Body of Christ Assembly are black and Pentecostal, and Lyons is white and from a traditional church background, she embraced their spirituality–that of “the Holy Ghost and fire.”

It’s all here in Holy Roller–the stories of people desperate for God’s help. And the actions of a God who doesn’t forget the people who need His power.

Synopsis:

A Dallas Times Herald reporter traces her experiences within a black Pentecostal church in a violent region of south Dallas where drug addicts, criminals, and others claimed to have found freedom from their personal demons, in a report that describes the author's own surprising discoveries within its congregation of inner-city holy rollers.

Synopsis:

Crime reporter Lyons discovers a church in the most violent part of the city that prays for addicts and gets results. Her story lands on the front page of the "Dallas Times Herald," and she finds an unlikely spiritual home.
