Wright grew up in the church but strayed beginning at age 12. During a 22-year span in which he habitually abused drugs and alcohol, he suffered through many of the things brought on by addiction: DUIs, car accidents, short stints behind bars, arrests for possession of drugs, marriage problems, adultery, and other life problems. Now that he is sober, his dream is to help people, especially in the marriage department.

Douglas S. Wright currently resides in Chatham.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Reluctant Christian?

An Amazing Story of Addiction and Deliverance  Oct 30, 2007
Douglas S. Wright in "The Reluctant Christian" has opened his life to the reader in a no bars held back story of the cycle of sin, addiction, repentance, and deliverance. It is a story of God's mercy, grace, and purpose in the life of a rebellious youth. It is the story of a young man plagued with bitterness and anger trying to work through a tumultuous marriage, to be a good father and provider for his children, and to submit to the plan of God for his life.

Douglas Wright has made himself vulnerable as he relates this modern day book of miracles, the power of God, the work of the Holy Spirit, and the salvation and deliverance available through the Jesus Christ, God's Son. He tells of growing up in a large family and the important place his extended family played in impacting his life. In his teens he made bad choices and soon was in a downward spiral of addiction. After narrowly escaping death on several occasions, numerous incarcerations, and a forced separation from his wife and children Doug reached rock bottom. He cried to God for His mercy and another chance. Wright shares the torment of his emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual struggles throughout his journey to deliverance, recovery, and wholeness.

Wright is articulate in his writing. I found myself immersed in the story from the first page to the very end. Gifted in spiritual discernment, and anointed by God's Spirit, Doug's writing is strong in Biblical teaching regarding, sin and evil, deliverance from the power of sin, demons, divorce, forgiveness, repentance, and restoration.

"The Reluctant Christian" is written with the prayer that it will be of help to others to help them avoid the hurt and suffering Doug went through. He points the way for submitting their lives to follow God's purpose and not their own plans. I am looking forward to a sequel to the book.
