Description


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. "
