Joe Markko, author of ''When Someday Comes: Memoirs of a Survivor '' is the autobiography of one of America's earliest pioneers in the musical expression now known as Contemporary Christian Music. Written as a record for his children and grandchildren, When Someday Comes winds through a childhood of abandonment and crime, the violence-plagued demonstrations of the 1968 Democratic Convention, 10 years in a Christian cult that took the lives of three people, electrocution with 27,000 volts of electricity, the shotgun-shooting death of his oldest child, falling from grace as an ordained clergyman and the long road to physical, spiritual and emotional healing. A cautionary tale for our times, When Someday Comes remains a story of hope, a contemporary tale of "beauty for ashes."
