Macel and Jerry Falwell
Macel (Pate) Falwell, Jerry Falwell's widow, who has authored a book about their life together, will be my guest on News Talk Online on Paltalk.com Monday June 9.
The one-time shy banker met Jerry Falwell, a local high school sports star and son of a Lynchburg, VA bootlegger, after he returned to Lynchburg from Bible college to start Thomas Road Baptist Church. The couple was married in 1958 and remained together until Falwell's death a little over a year ago.
Mrs. Falwell, who is an artist and pianist just released her first book, Jerry Falwell: His Life and Legacy in which she documents her life with the innovative yet controversial pastor and Christian educator.
Mrs. Falwell, who graduated at age 50 with a 4.0 GPA from Liberty University, has also served as an English instructor there. Rev. Falwell once said of his wife, "Macel is my best critic and is most responsible for the successful lives and careers of our children and myself."
Mrs. Falwell has three children and eight grandchildren. Son Jerry Jr. serves as chancellor of Liberty University (which his father founded in 1971) while son Jonathan serves as pastor of the Thomas Road Baptist Church. Daughter Jeannie is a Richmond, Va.-based surgeon.
