Jim has a Master of Divinity degree and was a successful Senior Pastor before he left institutional church and organized religion to explore new dimensions of his relationship with God. Since 2005 he has been chronicling his journey beginning with Divine Nobodies: Shedding Religion to Find God (and the unlikely people who help you), and then Wide Open Spaces: Beyond Paint-by-Number Christianity. His most previous book is, Being Jesus in Nashville: Finding the Courage to Live Your Life (whoever and wherever you are).
After leaving church ministry Jim led a non-profit agency for at-risk kids, and later served as the U.S. Director of Education for International Justice Mission, an international human rights organization based in Washington, D.C. In addition to writing, Jim is an adjunct professor of religion and ethics. He offers spiritual direction and coaching, and leads non-religious spirituality retreats and workshops. His current focus is The Religion-Free Bible Project, an endeavor of recreating the Bible in a voice that is free from religious bias, and free to fully express its profound and inclusive message for all humankind.
Jim and his family reside in Nashville, Tennessee.
