Ray's new book

Postby Chris » Wed Mar 29, 2017 3:00 pm

Ray has written a new book. Are you ready for the title? Banana Man

He explains "The true story of how a demeaning nickname opened amazing doors for the gospel––and how you can overcome your own fears in sharing your faith."

https://www.amazon.com/Banana-Man-Ray-C ... banana+man

It will be out in a few months. Someone should review it. Any takers?

Sorry Chris, I took won't read it. The "The Mystery" was enough for me. I'll suffer thru Ray's videos.

Current price $14.99. If like most of Ray's books it'll be halved in short time. If like "The Mystery" the price will go to $0.

As we've seen many times before, he takes a liability, his pig ignorance, and tries to spin it as an advantage. He's effectively saying to his hapless minions, "look! You can be pig ignorant and still be successful like me!"

I'm sure the book will be full of half truths and gimmicks as per his usual marketing plan.

It would take far less than an infinite number of monkeys and typewriters to write this book word for word, that's a fact.

Well, he's got a point there. But there's not room for too many Rays out there.

One thing none of Ray's minions will ever have is A well known and beloved child actor who used his resources to build up Ray's ministry.
It is easy to see that Ray came to "prominence" through his association with Cameron, and once Cameron was out of the picture the ministry went stagnant. You can see through his tax returns that he is stagnant and also he is still operating out of an old residential home that he started in 15 (?) years ago. If he had grown at all he'd need much more space fopr offices, warehousing et & et.
He's just setting there marking time right now.
The other thing that none of his minions will never have is Comfort's ease with lying and fracturing logic in a way that is loved by under educated dick weeds. He;s a natural at that.....he even calls it a "Blessing."

I never thought of that, but it's obvious now that you mention it.

Btw- my friend in the back workshop, Rebecca, is from New Zealand, and lived in Christchurch the whole time Ray was preaching there. She's never heard of him.

I have ten dollars that says it will be just like his other books, a bunch of rehashing of his blog and facebook posts, with an emphasis on the banana stuff.
