520 |a Chronicles the trial of the Baptist fundamentalist, who in a moment of violence, killed the Dexter Elliott Chipps in his church office. 
520 |a In the 1920's, the Reverend J. Frank Norris railed against vice and conspiracies he saw everywhere to a congregation of more than 10,000 at First Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas, the largest congregation in America, the first "megachurch." In a moment of violence one sweltering Saturday in July, Norris shot and killed an unarmed man in his church office. Norris was indicted for murder and, if convicted, would be executed in the state of Texas' electric chair. Learn about this courtroom drama pitting some of the most powerful lawyers of the era against each other with the life of a wildly popular, and equally loathed, religious leader hanging in the balance.
