Bill ran for sheriff; looked for missing children; got attacked by a pimp, dogs, moose, and a bear; built a cabin in the mountains; and played his keyboard across the country and in the White House-with hooks for hands. On May 11, 1971, Bill Rasmussen was a twenty-four-year-old country bumpkin who was painting from the roof of a building when thirteen thousand volts of electricity from a power line entered his body through his hands and exited through his upper legs. Three months later, he awakened with six years of memory erased and a wife, child, and a parole officer he didn't recognize. While unconscious, he repeatedly heard the question, Are you ready? and a powerful urgency he couldn't shake stalked him to find the answer to that question. He didn't kw God very well; r did he kw that God was about to take him on a forty-year journey full of mind-boggling, exciting, and catastrophic adventures-before he would find the answer to that question.
