Great. Another book about Jesus. Whose agenda will the author be lugging along this time?

Author Rick James begins by clearing his throat. Free of creeds, quarrels and specialized theologies, he speaks of Jesus.

No dogma, no politics, no moral at the end.

Jesus. What he said. What he did. And what, exactly, was the point.

The answers about Jesus, according to Rick James, are in the context. In his own unconventional way, James recalls the specific contexts that color Jesus' story, bringing forward this man you've heard so much—and so little—about.

About the Author

Rick James ends up thinking a lot about evangelism, about how to present Jesus responsibly to college students. In his dual role as a speaker for Campus Crusade and publisher of CruPress, Rick is constantly looking for, collecting and creating literature that communicates the Gospel in a truly relevant way.

Rick's two degrees, theology and advertising, have convinced him that good communication is nearly as important as good theology. And his Likewise book Jesus Without Religion reflects both, as Rick joins his concern for biblical substance with a care for style, humor, and metaphor.

Rick reads Atlantic Monthly, social trend writers like Malcolm Gladwell, and design magazines like Communication and Print. He also enjoys Wes Anderson films.
