About the Author

James was raised in New York, and like so many people, found himself many times victim of his bad choices, resulting in many failures and a lot of personal suffering. But after many close calls, James finally realized that he was on the wrong path, and finally turned his life over to God. Afterwards, he spent a lot of his time doing volunteer work in the service of his Lord. It was during this time that James felt a calling to minister overseas and left the United States with nothing more than the contents of two suitcases. The Spirit would lead him to Japan and Taiwan where he was able to teach for various companies and colleges, as well as a top university. He would also help open and operate several private schools, where he also taught. During his time overseas, James would meet and married the woman of his dreams and they were soon blessed with two beautiful daughters. In 2003, the Benedict family moved back to New York where they were soon blessed with two sons. While living in New York, James made his living working as a college librarian, but his real passion was his many church speaking engagements he was asked to do where he got a chance to tell the congregation about his love for God and the many blessings he and his family has received since he turned his life over to Christ. James and his family presently reside in Virginia where he continues his service to God through volunteer work, church speaking engagements, personal witnessing, and spiritual writing. James has two Masters Degrees: one in Library Science and the other in Theology. “Inspired Beyond Words” is his first novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Touching Source of Inspiration April 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
One of the aspects of James Benedict's story that makes it so touching is the realistic portrayal of the family members who are at the center of the tale. It is easy to identify with the characters, and the familiarity that the reader can feel, regardless of their cultural heritage. The Italian-American ethnicity of the family provides flavor to the colorful, funny and mischievous natures of the characters; the themes of loyalty and forbearance blend well with the heartfelt sentimentality that is so common to the Italian persona. I would recommend this wholesome, clever and poignant book to all of my friends and associates. Most of all, James Benedict's newly found status as a credible author and story-teller is definitely off to a good start!
