Jay Bakker is the son of famous television evangelists Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker. He grew up on the PTL (Praise the Lord) club, and suffered terribly when his parents’ empire fell. Turning to drugs and partying eased the pain for awhile, but now Jay is out with a new book, Fall to Grace: A Revolution of God, Self & Society, that describes not so much his fall “from” grace, but his fall to grace.
