“Shattered”: an enthralling account that shows how rock star Tim Branch and his bandmates have difficulty surpassing the tests of life while standing divided and questioning their faith. “Shattered” is the creation of published author Tom Cherrix, a writer who has a vast love for and a strong faith in God.

Cherrix writes, “Welcome to the exciting world of the high-energy, progressive Christian rock band Olive Branch. They have it all—money, success, awards, an incredible fan base, and a good church that keeps them grounded and focused on God. They are a light to their community and the world, and they keep getting more popular with every tour. There’s just one problem—the more they try to spread their faith, the more their faith is tested. As a group, they can pass any test, but when they are divided, they fail miserably.

“Tonight, we meet Tim Branch, co-founder and lead singer of the band, as he sits alone in a plush hotel room, surrounded by the results of their biggest failure. His partner, John E Olive, is at the hospital being treated for multiple lacerations and an apparent drug overdose. The crew and their families are asleep and blissfully unaware of the situation.
Where did it all go wrong? Did it start when a young Tim ran away to become a rock and roll star? Was it when John E decided that the ‘good Christian boy’ routine had run its course in his life? Was it when they both decided that the local church was no longer necessary?

“Follow Tim as he bounces between the present and the past, trying to make sense of it all. Go inside his head as he pieces the events of his life together and strives to figure out how everyone else plays into the current situation.

“Will he find the answers he is seeking, or will the search just reveal more questions?”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Cherrix’s new book tells a dramatic story about a spiritual and emotional battle that ripples throughout the lives of several band members. It may take a collaborative effort to find the answers that each seeks.

With this book, Cherrix aims to take readers into a compelling fiction where they can witness compassion and collaboration in the face of failure, addiction, and despair.
