About the Book

Put off by Christian jargon and pat answers?

James Southern relates how he was put off during his initial contact with reborners, as he labelled those who claimed to be born again. He recounts his skepticism, his conversion, his Bible School years, his life in Israel, and his intermittent backsliding. Rash Promises incorporates these life experiences, often humorous, with a study of rash promises and rash conduct by scriptural characters. Failing to learn what not to say and what not to do hinders one’s spiritual progress. And renouncing rash vows frees a person to live more fully for the Lord.

About the Author

James Southern was born in northern North America, but has since lived on most other continents. He met his wife to be while living in Israel. Looking through their young son’s books prompted James to undertake writing more moral stories. Rash Promises is his first venture into Christian nonfiction. No longer working as an engineer, he now calls himself a husbandman, helping his wife attend to the fruit trees on their property. They live in the Okanagan in beautiful British Columbia.
