“Then Christ will say to us, ‘Come you as well, Come drunkards, come weaklings, come forth ye children of shame …’  And the wise men and those of understanding will say:  ‘O Lord, why do you receive these men?’ and He will say, ‘This is why I receive them, O ye of understanding, that not one of them believed himself to be worthy of this.’  And he will hold out His hands to us and we shall fall down before him … and we will weep … and we will understand all things! … Lord, thy kingdom come.’”   Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov, )Garden City, N.Y.: International Collectors Library), Ch 5: “The Grand Inquisitor”. 



“I believe God is the author of a big story, a story of love and redemption, and we are all key characters in it, created for a purpose. Frank’s life story is a beautiful example of this. Open to God’s purpose, Frank encountered God in his joys, struggles, and sorrows. His frequent question, ‘What do you want me to do now?’ signals the obedience required to follow the path of Jesus.”
RICH STEARNS, President of World Vision United States, author of The Hole in Our Gospel and Unfinished

“In Signals of Transcendence, Frank Shaw, in a brutally honest way, shares both the beauty and brokenness of his life. And along the way, he invites us to a deeper level of trust in the relentless and transforming love of God, who not only works in spite of our failures and struggles, but so often in the midst of them.” Danny Wuerfel
