About the Book

James of Jerusalem imagines answers, not recorded in the Bible, to questions about a pivotal figure in the first century church. What kind of person was James? Did he have a family? How was he like or different from his elder brother, Jesus? How and where did he die?

The book gives a clear picture of the character of James. Based on his epistle and biblically recorded events in his life, it portrays the man who modeled how he urged others to live, in his letter to those who called themselves “Followers of the Way.”

The reader will be caught up in what could have been James’s private life and will gain understanding of the Jerusalem church and its leader in its early years.

This novel is truly a journey which encompasses faithfulness, understanding the human heart, intrigue, romantic love, sorrow, surprises, and – most of all, absolute trust in the Savior and love for fellow human beings.
