Wrestling with Fear : A Former Pastor Conquers Fear, Not with Prayer, But with a Fight for His Life
Do you know the roots of your fear? Are you aware of how fear dictates the way you relate to your significant other, your work, your plan and yourself? In an unfortunate period of his life, the author gradually unpeels the layers of his fear. With the imminent threat to his life, he takes on fear for a fight. How can one fight against fear, especially when it is living in you? "The fear in my head had turned me into a self-centred and naive person. The fear of losing freedom had turned me into a controlling maniac. The fear of ultimate isolation with death had turned me into an insecure and possessive person. The fear of now or never had turned me into an instant gratification person. Fear was certainly very powerful. It had changed me with little of my awareness." The author offers no methodology or religion to tackle one's own fear. Instead, he shares his journey of courage in releasing himself from fear."

About Paul T B Ma
Paul was brought up in a self-driven family. His father was a self-taught chef and didn't stop learning new things even at end of his life. The knowledge hungry spirit enables Paul to take risks for new ventures. At various periods of time, over the last thirty years, he was a business owner, a pastor, a professional counsellor, a school educational assistant, an artist, and a writer respectively. At one point in time, he was perceived as an angel --- the best pastor, husband and father. At the other time, he was regarded as a devil --- the religious traitor, marriage breaker and selfish person. His writing is honest and human. It is a manifestation of his bright and dark journey. He lives in New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada.
