Jim was raised in a Christian home in small-town Amarillo, Texas. He went to the University of Texas where he met his wife and mother of his 3 children. Professionally, he was in banking and insurance before turning to Mediation. Divorced at 45, he never re-married, turning his attention to writing and study of the philosophies and theologies that cause people to treat each other badly; to compete when collaboration might be easier and more productive. Jim found his own faith in high school and has ever-since worked to flesh out the gospel mysteries in modern, American life. He likes to fish for trout in mountain streams, and hunt for birds, play golf and gin rummy and watch college football.
THEN WHO ARE WE is a book about community. It's based on the biblical concept of community, but makes practical sense for any human grouping, both in terms of membership guidance and group selection (and rejection).
