This is the extraordinary saga of a cloistered nun who used her instincts and $200 to launch the world's first Catholic cable channel. What began in the garage of an Alabama monastery is now the Eternal World Television Network, reaching more than 184 million viewers worldwide.
From the Publisher:

In 1981, a simple nun, using merely her entrepreneurial instincts and $200, launched what would become the world’s largest religious media empire in the garage of a Birmingham, Alabama, monastery. Under her guidance, the Eternal Word Television Network grew at a staggering pace, both in viewership and in influence, to where it now reaches over a hundred million viewers in hundreds of countries around the globe.
Raymond Arroyo combines his journalist’s objectivity and eye for detail with more than five years of exclusive interviews with Mother Angelica. He traces Mother Angelica’s tortured rise to success and exposes for the first time the fierce opposition she faced, both outside and inside of her church.

Annotation:
In this religious biography, journalist Raymond Arroyo tells the life story of the Roman Catholic nun, Mother Angelica, who founded the enormously successful Eternal Word Television Network on cable television. Arroyo chronicles the humble Ohio beginnings and difficult upbringing of Rita Rizzo, who, following God's answers to her prayers for relief from her physical ailments, pursued her religious calling, joining the Poor Clares, a monastic order. Mother Angelica later founded her own monastery in Alabama, established the EWTN, and saw it prosper--thanks to her business acumen. Eventually, Mother Angelica was named by Time magazine as one of the most influential Catholic women in America. What comes across is a tenacious woman whose religious faith recalls the saints of old, and whose business skills are a match for today's entrepreneurs.
