In an amazing true story, Zip Rzeppa's life connects with media superstars Bill O'Reilly--and Howard Stern--and Joe Buck--before any of them appear on TV. Grit and determination bring Zip his own fame as he becomes the wackiest local TV sportscaster in America. Longing for love, Zip ricochets from redheads to reporters to runners, from friends to flings to fiancees until he finally finds the woman who shows him every moment matters. Inspired, Zip drops the microphone and rolls up his sleeves to serve those in sheltered workshops, inner city dwellings, and foster homes. Finally, a miracle from Our Lady of Guadalupe delivers Zip a new calling to use his media savvy to feed today's spiritually starved souls. With echoes of St. Augustine's The Confessions and Thomas Merton's The Seven Story Mountain, For A Greater Purpose is the heartbreaking and triumphant saga of a dynamic 21st century man who discovers that the purpose of life is written in the Palm of God's Hand.
