God TV

Or how to take all the fun out of life, and all your money too. From God TV: Televangelism 2.0 by Sarah Posner:

…welcome to the world of an apostolic movement sweeping the globe with its claims of prophecy direct from God, supernatural revivals and healings, and a quest to mold young people for God’s kingdom by enforced sexual purity, 24/7 prayer, repentance, and fasting. God TV, which acts both as a player in the movement and its gigantic PR machine, beams its programming—which often includes live prayer and revival events from the apostolic movement—across Europe, Asia, and Africa. And although God TV can only be seen in the United States on the satellite provider DirecTV or the Internet, the network is notable here not because of the audience it reaches, but because of the growing movement it depicts.
