The Gospel According to Splinter

A 5th gospel has surfaced! One of the 70 disciples Jesus sent out two by two, was a clown by the name of "Splinter"! Splinter was with Jesus from the start of his ministry, and stayed with him to the very end. He retells the much loved stories and teachings of Jesus from the eyes and perspective of a bungling clown. (This is not just entertaining: it's a commentary on Luke, disguised as fiction!) More

About Jim Reiher

Jim Reiher lives in Melbourne Australia. He has four adult children and lots of grandchildren. Jim writes both fiction and non-fiction.

Regarding his fiction and the themes he loves to write about: Over his lifetime, (besides holding down various serious jobs), Jim has been a clown and a magician. His clown character was the hobo "Splinter" - a bungling clown who tried to do magic and usually either failed or surprised himself. And his straight magic routine was, and still is, performed for both adults or children. Whether an all adult function, or a children's party, his comical magic causes everyone to laugh and wonder. His clown/magician side comes out in the novels: "The Sunburnt Circus"; and "Broken Hill Broken Lives"; as well as "The Gospel According to Splinter"; and "The Acts of the Apostles and Splinter". His non-fiction "Confessions of a Christian Magician" is light hearted and inspires you to pursue your gifts and passions.

Regarding most of his non-fiction, Jim's serious side comes out, although sometimes he writes his non-fiction with humor, too. Jim is a respected Australian Biblical scholar, with a MA in Theology with Honors, and 13 years of full time lecturing in Bible Colleges. Jim has published a number of books on topics ranging from Tarot Cards, to the Equality of Women in the Church, to how politics works in Australia. He has also written a number of commentaries on different New Testament books and letters: the Epistle of James, the Book of Acts, and most recently the Gospel of Mark.

Jim enjoys a nice quiet walk in 'the middle of no where'; a good movie; a good book; playing ten-pin bowling; and spending time with his children and grandchildren.
