The Light That Illuminates the Flameby Gary Tim Collins
December 2, 2004, started out like any other day for Gary Tim Collins. As a University of Toledo alumnus, Gary was looking forward to the Mid-American Conference championship game at Ford Field against the University of Miami with his friends. But he wouldn't see or remember the game. Just as he was about to sit down to enjoy the game, he was struck with seizures that landed him in Henry Ford's Intensive Care Unit in a coma for two weeks. It was the prayers of friends and loved ones that helped bring him back. This traumatic experience brought Gary closer to God, when he had previously struggled with finding his purpose and really felt God had something else in mind for him. That something else turned out to be this book, The Light That Illuminates the Flame. In this book, Gary explores common themes of Christianity, like who God is, what he does in our lives, the importance of his Word, the life of Jesus Christ, and, in turn, the way we should live our lives as his faithful followers to draw near to him. It is a thank you to the Almighty God who gave all and saved a man from losing it all. Marty Pennington Lead Pastor Mainstreet Church Walbridge, Ohio. Gary Tim Collins taught for over twenty-four years in the Toledo public school system, working with handicapped and disadvantaged high school students. He lives in Ohio and is actively involved in his church. This is his first book. This is a book that would be good for any growing Christian to read. Gary takes much of his personal life experiences and puts them into layman's terms so that all can learn and grow. As you, like all of us, struggle with life's issues, this book will certainly help you work with your own struggles as well as prepare you to help others on their journey of life. Terry R. Smith Congregational Care Pastor, Mainstreet Church
