COMBINATION LOCK is the autobiography of C. Wayne Parker. His story begins in 1962 with him as a short, skinny, shy, fatherless, high school kid with a pet dog and hope. He grew up in the small, lower-middle-class Burlington community of east Knoxville, Tennessee. He was a simple boy living in a simple time. Throughout his early life he struggled to find the right combination of qualities that would ensure for him a satisfying, meaningful life. He flunked out of engineering college, and the military draft board wanted him for duty in Vietnam, yet he still carried his dream in his heart. He did not give up; he did not quit. Along the way, his path took him on a journey of hurt, happiness, disaster and deliverance. There were times for both tears and smiles—as there are in his book. But as he matured and made some changes, his life was transformed into one of love, contentment and peace. What were the qualities that made up his combination and unlocked for him a path to secure his dream? Walk the path with him.
