Parker Wayland holds master’s degrees in engineering and business. He is a retired U.S. Navy Captain and also retired from a civilian career as a chemical and nuclear engineer and engineering project manager. In 1997 he began a series of short-term Christian missions in Nigeria and Ghana. Since then, teaching and preaching missions have carried him to five continents in countries such as Brazil, Slovakia, India, China and Pakistan. His experiences on these missions helped shape his perspective on life.
This book is a memoir, but it is also a flashlight. With all its contradictions, turmoil and other sources of confusion, making sense of this life is a big challenge. The title boldly proclaims that life does make sense, and then proceeds to shine light through the darkness and despair onto a bedrock of truth and hope. When is a memoir half a very accessible philosophical essay and half a very challenging call to Christian service? When “It All Makes Sense,” the new memoir from Parker Wayland. For someone who was never exactly lost, Parker remains a seeker to the core. He delights in the hard questions, never opting for the easy answers, but always choosing to live life and love life with a resounding Yes! This book reveals a head for the deep things of the universe, a heart for the people of the planet, and hands and feet always at the ready for real service. -Lee Magness, Professor Emeritus, Milligan College
