Dollar helping to define life's worth, by Bob Makin

Dr. Creflo A. Dollar always wanted to live up to his name by becoming a millionaire. But he also wanted to be a pastor and preach the word of God.

As a televangelist whose books, CDs, DVDs and personal appearances are in high demand, he has done both. He will sign copies of his latest book, "8 Steps to Create the Life You Want: The Anatomy of a Successful Life," from 1 to 3 p.m. today at Barnes & Nobile, 240 Route 22 W., Springfield.

The appearance comes at a time when Dollar's success is under scrutiny.

Creflo and Taffi Dollar

Did you ask every question we wanted an answer! I really do like the way you go behind the camera and lights and ask about the rumors and perceptions. Keep going after the truth. Thanks for allowing them to address us. Kevin J., Washington, D.C.

This article was insightful. I learned a lot about the Dollars, and most of all, I heard their hearts. I am not really into televangelism, and I realized after reading this article that these two people see themselves as pastors not only to their two churches but also to anyone who will give them an ear. It gave me a sense of understanding that I didn't have before. Question, can you sit the other television ministers down, and let us hear from them? Carolyn B., Pittsburgh, Penn.

A Dollar and a Dream, by Isabel Wilkerson

This is not your typical storefront church with the after service fish fry. This is another world. You know you're getting close when traffic comes to a dead stop near the pawn shops on Old National Highway south of Atlanta.

I sit in traffic with the masses, watching as some people give up, park on a grassy median, and walk the rest of the way, Bibles in hand. Farther up around the corner, sheriff's deputies direct the hordes. The congregants are in Sunday-go-to-meeting suits, sneakers and stilettos, cut-off jeans and baggy T-shirts, dreadlocks and do-rags. There's an urgency about their stride, a thrill, even, as if they are part of something bigger than themselves, bigger than most any churchgoer could imagine.
