I have heard of the TBN. I watch it occasionaly. They own this theme park called "The Holy Land Experience" which is to me just a gratuitous money scheme that plays on people's desires to be "outwardly/actively/physically religious", much the same manner as the Catholic Church. I always suspect that Christian TV station owners are hypocrites in the business to find a niche in a smallish market and get rich quick, much like "Christian" bands nowadays.

But you mentioned the price of the Bible. It also comes with two other pretty thick books, one of which is an Encyclopaedia of Bible Prophecy, so 100 dollars isn't exactly gouging folks, but I would imagine that you're right, in that he's not in the Christian author game just to evangelize: money is a factor.
