Schuller was a pioneering television con artist (and minister) broadcasting the Hour of Power show (some 1500 episodes — some still running on TBN) to rake in loot from lonely grandmothers. He previously pioneered the Drive-in Church. After his pot was full, he built the Chrystal Cathedral mega church which later devolved into a family feud, bankruptcy, his ousting from the CC board, and his placement in a nursing home. And now he’s dead, Jim.
Actually went to his church around 12 years ago…very sobering experience just to walk inside…very different type of building. Was not actually at a service. Also heard Schuller speak at a radio conference in the 80’s.
Very gifted communicator.
