Muscle and a Shovel (Revised Edition)

by Michael Shank

Muscle and a Shovel is a raw and gritty true story about a pair of young newly-weds who move to the city to chase the American dream. In the process they're befriended by a man who turns their belief about God, their church, and their faith upside down! Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, Catholics, the Community Churches - none are spared when Truth is at stake and their new friend Randall isn't about to "candy coat" God's Word for the sake of "political correctness" or "religious tolerance."
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!"

386 pages. Paperback.

    It was quite edifying, very interesting, and I stayed on the edge of my seat.

    An Invaluable Tool for the Modern Personal Evangelist

    Posted by Carl Dann on Dec. 12, 2015

    If you have not read Muscle and a Shovel, then stop what you are doing and read it now! There is no better written account of the arguments and theories that a bible student will face in teaching others than this book. Almost every angle imaginable is covered in scripture-backed detail with non-confrontational hints and examples for opening conversations with denominational-minded 'seekers' in order to bring them to the true knowledge of Christ. Get the workbook as well for a handy reference, and order several of these to give out to friends.

    Muscle and a Shovel

    I had read the book previously and would recommend it for reading, even for a teaching tool for those searching for salvation. I appreciated the person's sincerity as he sought to find the truth, and the patience of the one who was teaching him. Love for the truth has no color.

    A mirror image of mine and my wife's journey to obedience

    Posted by Bill Davis on Jan. 29, 2015

    Randall may as well have been named "Ted" who took my wife and I on the same journey 42 years ago. Ted was the spittin' image of Randall, had an unbelievable amount of scripture committed to memory, was kind, gentle and unbelievably patient with us. Just like Randall, he was a co-worker of mine, we studied in spare moments at work and did a couple of all nighters just like Randall and Mr. Mike did. Give this book to anyone and everyone you are trying to teach the truth and I would highly recommend it to every living Christian. It will change your life and renew your spirit. The best book we have ever read.

    Next to the Bible, itself, this is a tool that will change your life!

    By far the best book I've ever read on the subject. I've bought extra copies to give away and will probably be buying more. I can't express how totally pleased with this book I am! Biblically accurate and full of scripture with every point!

    Excellent read...

    Posted by Teri Blount on Oct. 24, 2014

    My husband and I had very much the same journey in our search for the truth nearly 40 years ago. I appreciate the plain and clear way it is spoken- explained - with scripture at every turn. For anyone looking for the truth, it IS THERE :) :) in our Bibles … some of us find it on our own, some need a little guidance. This is an excellent tool and surely very useful to many who are searching.

    Wish it'd been written several years ago

    I can think of some who've since passed from this life, who I would love to have given a copy of this to. It is super, even for Christians to read.

    If your scale went up to 10 stars I would rate this book a solid 10+++

    Posted by Jim Warren on Jan. 4, 2014

    Outside of my Bible, this is the best book that I have ever read, bar none! It was so good that I could not put it down. I read it from cover to cover in three days.
