Unexpected Places is the personal story of gospel singer Anthony Evans, son of well-known pastor Tony Evans and brother of author Priscilla Shirer. In this intimate and moving memoir, Anthony shares the details of his struggles with depression and doubt, and encourages readers with the unique story of his search for purpose and identity.
From growing up duty-bound to his name, to his time as a finalist and then talent producer on The Voice, Anthony explores the pressures he experienced as a child and as a young man in Hollywood. He describes the journey to his renewed faith in God and exposes the vast differences between what the world teaches us to value and how God values us. Anthony examines what his parents did right in raising him but also describes how they unknowingly missed his pain. Finally, he reveals how God orchestrated His plan to grow Anthony into a man who is in love with his life, his heritage, and his individual calling.
Anthony has learned to embrace the incredible beauty of his unique voice. In Unexpected Places, he invites readers on their own journey to do the same.
Thank you for being real!
The book title is so appropriate, because God’s ways are not ours so He takes us to unexpected places. I appreciated the real ness, loved the scripture verse at the beginning of each chapter. Anthony’s vulnerability and transparency made me connect to his journey. The overall message was centered around Gods love, hope and forgiveness. It reminded me of the importance of being still, completely surrendering, to always be real, to give back to others, to keep the main thing the main thing and to keep pressing on. Thanks for sharing your life story! Meshia. 👍🏽
What a beautiful testament to the importance of being who God created YOU to be. We are all broken in one way or another and all have our own stories. The truest testimony one can have is sharing their own struggles and imperfections with honesty, while trying everyday to please God even when we fall short! Thank you Anthony for sharing you journey with us!
I have loved the Evans family for years now so when I heard abt my favorite singer writing a book I had to get it. It was everything I thought. God has used this family to minister to me countless times and I’m so thankful for their obedience. People underestimate obedience today but it’s so key to Gods plan & timing. Thanks Anthony for being your great, talented loved, authentic self.
