Your image of what a “stone-cold, 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 25 years two-time Emmy Award winning
broadcaster, investigative reporter and news anchor Frank Turner’s life 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 Presidents and Kings,
Mayors and moguls; while he reported on disasters and major developments of all kinds, while he 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.

Follow the journey from abused little boy, drug
addicted adult—to saved, delivered, healed and restored to “America’s First Evangelical Anchorman.”

Raised from the Dead is the gripping and powerful account of Emmy Award-winning television news anchor Frank Turner’s descent into hopeless drug addiction even as his career was skyrocketing him to fame, wealth and prominence. Raised from the Dead is also a story about what God can do, that no other can. It is a story about victory. But ultimately it is a story about transformation.
Raised from the Dead is Frank’s personal story of:

• The heart-wrenching details of his abandonment and sexual abuse as a child.
• His 25 year addiction to drugs and alcohol including 22 years helplessly and hopelessly addicted to smoking pure cocaine.
• His years of involvement with the Nation of Islam while married to the daughter of Louis Farrakhan.
• And the shocking revelations of Frank’s participation in drug use and trafficking while at WXYZ-TV Channel 7 (Detroit) !
• The awe inspiring account of a loving God's; salvation, deliverance, healing and restoration.
