After enduring years of depression due to problems in his career, author James David Parker found answers through Bible study, prayer and introspection. He realized he wasn’t the only one who faced depression and decided to start a program in his church for others. In an effort to reach an even larger audience, Parker wrote his new book, “The Fire Will Not Consume You—Isaiah 43:2b: A Journal of Prayer—A Search for God” (published by Inspiring Voices). Parker provides a powerful message of Christian spirituality that unlocks the awesome power of God to guide our lives.

Parker begins his book by discussing his life dedicated to the world of commerce. After a series of personal disasters, though, he finds himself totally defeated. With no one to turn to, he looks to God for healing. Through years of prayer and biblical study, he discovered peace and freedom through the guidance of the Holy Spirit of God.

An excerpt from “The Fire Will Not Consume You—Isaiah 43:2b”:

“There in the foxhole of my office—the most secure place I could find, for I had always been in control there—my thoughts continued to wander. The Church, I recalled, although increasingly neglected in my life, had always been there—a friendly and supportive place of rest and renewal for an hour each Sunday morning. There was nothing else, no bunker into which I could retreat.”
