This story will grip you from opening to close and will stimulate your spirit on levels you didn’t think possible. Get ready to fight or flee because Muscle and a Shovel is one of those rare books that will raise your heart-rate and your blood-pressure. You won’t want to wait to share it with your friends or you’ll want to dowse it in gasoline and set on fire! There’ll be no middle ground.
Many Christian reviewers have said, “This book will turn our current religious world upside-down!”
