Elmer GantryUnknown - 2008
Elmer Gantry is the portrait of a silver-tongued evangelist who rises to power within his church, but he is a saver of souls who lives a life of hypocrisy, sensuality, and ruthless self-indulgence. The title character starts out as a greedy, shallow, philandering Baptist minister, turns to evangelism, and eventually becomes the leader of a large Methodist congregation. Throughout the novel, Gantry encounters fellow religious hypocrites. Although he is often exposed as a fraud, Gantry is never fully discredited.
