Description: Great preachers aren't born that way. Most of them are a result of how they were raised. The Kinison family included the infamous comedian Sam Kinison, a brother named Richard who was born severely mentally handicapped and blind and yet was miraculously healed at the age of 13, Kevin who would also model for Barbazon, and Bill who was a very accomplished speaker. It is Bill who wrote and performs The Gospel according to Kinison. All four Kinison brothers became Pentecostal preachers, following in the footsteps of their father and mother.
The Gospel according to Kinison is an inside view of Pentecostalism, the Kinison family, religion and evangelists like Jimmy Swaggert, Jim Baker, Pat Robertson and others. It is presented along the style of a Pentecostal church service with inspiring and moving music by Sherry Kinison and her choir. Fiercely funny and bitingly sad, this moving tragic-comedy throws theatre instantaneously into high gear.
