â??Elmer Gantryâ?? by Sinclair Lewis is a satirical novel that shows just how far a person without ethics can go. Elmer begins as a college athlete with aspirations to go into Law. Once he determines Law is not the career for him, he slips into alcoholism. While drunk, he mistakenly gets ordained as a minister. He is completely ruthless and sees this as an opportunity, stopping at nothing in order to achieve his goals. He eventually becomes a Methodist minister. He meets and decides to promote a talented but naive, young evangelist, who he also takes as his lover. Although he loses both her and his career after a deadly fire, he still manages to marry well and come out the winner in the end.
