Parnassus Books is thrilled to welcome Debby Schriver as she discusses and signs Whispering in the Daylight.
Tony Alamo is dead. He died last year in the federal prison where he was serving a 175-year sentence for child sex abuse. Contrary to his promise, the days following his death did not bring Christ-like resurrection. Alamo’s wife and partner Susan, is also gone, dead for 36 years, and she too has yet to return. Who has risen to new life are the children of the Tony Alamo Christian Ministries.
