Raised from the Dead is the personal account of award winning TV news anchor Frank Turner’s triumphant journey through abandonment, sexual abuse, drug addiction and three fatal cocaine overdoses. It also includes fascinating insight into his involvement with the Nation of Islam as Louis Farrakhan’s former son-in-law.
Your image of what a “stonecold, cocaine-junkie-crackhead” looks like probably doesn’t include an impeccably dressed, very professional and extremely articulate television anchor delivering your evening news.
But it should.
For twenty-five years, the life of two-time Emmy award winning broadcaster, investigative reporter and news anchor, Frank Turner, was a roller coaster ride that took him from the heights of achievement to the depths of addiction.
With no choice but to build upon his damaged foundation of abandonment, abuse and sexual molestation as a child, Turner simultaneously constructed a brilliant career and a tormented life.
Even as he interviewed kings and presidents, mayors and moguls, reported on disasters and major developments of all kinds, gathered and delivered the most exciting news stories from around the world—Frank’s most shocking and powerful story was always his own. But it has never been told—until now.
Come inside and follow this man’s fascinating journey from abused little boy to “America’s First Evangelical Anchorman.”
