Muscle and a Shovel is a raw, gritty, true story about young newly-weds, Michael and Jonetta Shank, who move to the city to pursue the American Dream. In the middle of their pursuit they're befriended by a man who turns their beliefs about God, their church and their faith upside-down! Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, Catholics, Pentecostals, Lutherans, Episcopalians, Community Churches - no one is spared when Truth is at stake and their new friend doesn't care about political correctness or religious tolerance.
Prepare to have your intellect, emotions and existing beliefs set on fire!
If you choose to read this book your beliefs will be challenged in ways you never thought possible and from a vantage point you may have never considered. The fact that this is non-fiction is one reason why this story is so compelling and powerful. This book will anger, frustrate and agitate your senses beyond description.
It will force you to examine the beliefs you hold close to your heart, but you won't finish this book without being satisfied. If your sensibilities are easily offended, this story is probably not for you. In fact, many who begin the story won't make it to the end of the book. Those who do will find something far more valuable than the purchase price of the book.
