Pearls Wrapped in Paper is a selection of flashes of insight that came to the author as he prayed, meditated, and contemplated. He was not able to simply sit down and compose the initial insights by an act of his will. Such things cannot be forced into existence. Howard's daily prayer has been that they be written in the Spirit. The Holy Spirit is like the wind that blows where it pleases, and one can move when his sails are up. The jottings are freestanding, not connected to what comes before or after. Mr. Laing considers them pearls because, although they are wrapped in my sentences, they are insights from God. 

Howard Laing was born and raised in Bedford, Ohio, and has now retired with his wife Wanda in Chillicothe, Ohio.  He has had a dual career, an ordained minister, pastoring several churches, and an Associate Professor of Literature at the University of Northwestern, St. Paul, and Philadelphia College of Bible (now Cairn University).  He is a graduate of Bob Jones University, Dallas Theological Seminary, University of North Texas, and doctoral studies at Baylor University.
