taralovesbooks’ #CVR4 Review #19: Thieves by Trey Smith
Cannonball Read IV: Book #19/52
Because of my media-related job, I have had to work with several televangelists in the past — including Mike Murdock, the subject of this book. I don’t really care for the guy, so when I found this book online I had to read it. Mike Murdock is a televangelist who believes in “seed faith”. Or basically he has one sermon – give me X amount of money and God will make you a millionaire. Blah blah.
Trey Smith grew up with Murdock’s son, Jason. Both had pretty severe drug problems which they subsidized by stealing jewelry from Murdock’s massive closet full of riches. Also in the closet? A 300 pound safe, which they assumed to be full of cash. They joked around about stealing it, but one day Trey decided to go for it (without Jason’s involvement).
