James Randi, magician and debunker of charlatans of all stripes sets his sights on Christian faith healers. He and his associates invented names, life histories, illnesses and tracked down multimillionaire evangelists with their own fleet of wheelchairs to expose the fraud and illogic perpetrated by them. He wants us to fear not the Lord but irrationality. The one misgiving with the book is that Randi fails to see in his heart the underlying emotional void that dogs people who seek the comfort of faith healers.
