Research scientist that takes part in overseas ministries? Not him, thought James Rapp, when he pictured the cautious person he was, content just being a glass technician in a reputable manufacturing company. However, gentle nudges from God quickly led James out of his comfort zone and into a thriving relationship with Jesus. In his new book, A Scientist in the Shadow of God, James recalls countless incidents where promptings from the Holy Spirit helped him to overcome personal challenges and embrace opportunities of blessing. It began with God's assistance to erase James's fear of public speaking that led him into ministry, thanks to impromptu ministry opportunities with his wife Sharon. Through miraculous events at work, James traveled overseas and soon was encouraging ministry in the Far East, primarily in Japan, China and Taiwan. What started as a "Why me?" mindset towards ministry later transformed into a lifelong calling in evangelism.
