Like its author, Shattered is "fun, fast, and real" and an intriguing mix of paradoxes. Frank Pastore was a physically awkward kid who became a professional athlete. An okay student who goes on to earn two masters degrees in philosophy. A former atheist who ends up hosting the biggest Christian radio talk show in America. Shattered is part sports book, because youll go on road trips, enter clubhouses, and walk on the fields of professional baseball. Its part romantic novel, because youll journey with two young kids who fall in love and eventually elope, evading not only her family, but the law as well--for she was only 16. Its also a story of brokenness, betrayal, and burn-out. If you were raised in a dysfunctional family, if youve ever had your dreams fall apart, been betrayed by close friends, or hit the psychological "wall" in your professional career, this is your book too. But, most of all, this is an uplifting story of how an unpredictable God can surprise any of us with His goodness and love when we allow Him to make beautiful the shattered fragments of our lives.
