E. James Harrison was born in Salt Lake City and developed an early love for and fascination with the great men and women of the Bible while sitting on his parents' couch and flipping through the pages of Bible Stories for Children.
An avid student of the scriptures, he's been teaching (some might say confusing) youth and adults as a Sunday School teacher for over twenty years and is apparently destined to continue doing so until he gets it right or dies, whichever comes first.
A marketing communications consultant, he holds a bachelor degree with emphasis in creative writing and has written countless articles, newsletters, advertisements, and commercials. He has authored dozens of book in his mind, but his is the first he has committed to paper.
When not putting words on paper for himself or others, Jim can be found flying airplanes or boating with his family.
He and his wife Deborah live in St. George, Utah and are the parent of two daughters.
Overall Review: `The Tomb Builder' is a beautiful and moving historical fiction about a man who played a great part in the final days of the Savior, but is barely even mentioned in the Bible: Joseph of Arimathea. This novel explores a small section of his life and we are able to glimpse some "What if?"s. Joseph was a member of the Sanhedrin; a powerful and rich man in the community; married with children. What happened to him when he offered his own personal tomb to bury someone who had caused so much uproar amongst the Jews and his brethren of the Sanhedrin? And why did he do it in the first place? How did his wife and family react? We see amazing miracles surrounding the inspiration and execution of the tomb itself--both Joseph and his wife feeling the need to build a tomb--but why? The stone hewer even talks of the religious experience of his work on the tomb fit for a King. Joseph announces his faith to the Sanhedrin and is now under the ire of the evil chief judge Caiaphas. Caiaphas plans to completely destroy Joseph in a Job-like way after dealing with Jesus. It was so interesting to hear the inner debates, plans and conflicts amongst the Sanhedrin and why they did what they did. It was all about power and money, of course, but to `listen in' on the conversations put these scriptural events on a new personal level. I felt for Joseph as he struggled with his newfound faith and the lack of understanding from so many close friends and family. I cried at the scene of the crucifixion and again as they prepared the body for burial. Thankfully, right prevails and it is proven once again that good will always come to those who hold true to their beliefs, even under the most dire of circumstances. A lovely work of fiction that will make you wonder about this man and want to know more!Read more ›

I really enjoyed this book. I had never thought much about Joseph of Arimathea. As I read, it seemed as if I had gone back in time and was witnessing the miracles performed by Jesus and watching the division it caused among the people of that time.
