Born in January 1963, James entered the world at a turbulent time. James' loving parents offered stability and support in raising him. Later James moved to a small rural town near Washington, D.C.
James graduated high school and was deeply immersed into the electronics industry. When life became too hectic, James left his field and delivered newspapers for a number of years as his grandparents and parents had before him.
When the opportunity came to enter another type of work, James seized it and became a floor man and a painter but he never forgot his dream to write books.
This is why you are reading this now.
James and his wife, Alison are busy in the task of raising three children of their own.

Being a former Pastor myself I related immediately to this book, Leaving Jesus. It was not my first experience with packing my bags and dumping idolatry, it came almost 2 years afterward. My transition moving away from the church would have been easier (and quicker) had I had this book in my hands from the get-go. No other resource draws upon scripture like this book. I also listened to the audio version and was very impressed at the quality. I have never heard that type of audio book before, and surprisingly I didn't mind it one bit!

When I saw the title of this book I thought, "That sounds like me ..."
What is the motivation to leave a belief system one has lived for most of ones life?
Well I can firmly say that while the book is an easy read, it poses powerful and thought provoking questions. It lays out clearly and methodically many of the questions I had struggled with and provides clear Scriptural references and answers.
Who and what is a messiah, does Jesus and the New Testament support the Old Testament, who and what is Paul...
It may not be the definitive work on the subject of Christianity vs Judaism but certainly is a worthwhile read by anyone who is questioning there Christian faith and or what to examine the Hebrew roots of Christianity ... It also is a good read for family and friends who want a perspective when family members leave Christianity / Jesus and convert to Judaism....
A good read I recommend it !

Great Great read! Enjoyed it thoroughly. It held my attention until the end and dealt with all the pertinent questions regarding Jesus in light of the Hebrew Bible. I don't think I've many books written against christianity which deals with the Jewish Bible in such a plain way.
It covers so called messianic prophecies, the mindset of christians when they approach the Hebrew Bible, the disharmony of the gospels, the resurrection accounts, the words of Paul and much more. But this author does what christians should do but never do: looks at the new testament claims with "old testament" eyes. If a christian, or anyone else wants a positive step towards truth, they should read this book. Highly recommended.
