“The Love Boat” Captain Now Ambassador for Christ


RNS-MACLEOD-PROFILE aReligious News Servive reports:  To many, he is Murray from “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” or Captain Stubing from “The Love Boat.” But Gavin MacLeod — whose acting career is bookended with a spiritual TV program and a Christian movie — says his new calling is “ambassador for Christ.”

The 82-year-old actor is out with a new book, “This Is Your Captain Speaking: My Fantastic Voyage Through Hollywood, Faith & Life.”

He writes about how his star-studded career was interspersed with a faith walk that began as a Roman Catholic, detoured through the New Age movement in the 1970s, and ended up firmly planted in the Pentecostal faith. That path included depression, alcohol and divorce, but he credits God’s forgiveness with carrying him through.
