Overview

Michael Nastasis had it all - a large home, a luxury car, a successful career, and all the trappings of affluence - until he received divorce papers and a restraining order from his wife.  In his latest Creation House release, The Unseen Essential, noted author and medical doctor James Gills takes readers inside the life of Michael Nastasis and illustrates how the character's newfound faith redeems him and his family. 

 

He writes: "Michael, the central figure of the story, is a composite character.  He evolved in part from the imagination and experiences of people I have known, me as well as anyone who is on a spiritual walk".

 

The book also examines the process of salvation and how to apply it in every day life. Gills demonstrates a few key principles of the kind of faith I have learned to embrace.  In other words, how does the unseen essential translate into the daily grind of living?" He also adds, "Rather than focus on any specific number of 'steps', I pray you will be inspired to seek God - to look beyond your own circumstances, trials, and temptations, or even blessings, to Jesus.  Nothing is too difficult for the author and finisher of your faith."

 

Filled with humor and honesty, Gills motivates readers to recognize the power of God and His redeeming salvation.
