About Bob James
Bob James is a native of Oak Park, Illinois. He went to Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas where he began studying criminology with the idea of being a lawyer. While there, he felt a call to preach and ended up with a degree in Religion and History. He married Lucy Garrett upon graduation and went to Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary where he earned a Master of Divinity Degree.
He pastored First Baptist Church of Paint Rock, Texas for a number of years until he moved to Corpus Christi, Texas as pastor of Calvary Baptist Church. During his time there, he felt called to pastor Gulf Coast Baptist Deaf Church. He left the pastorate and began working in the educational field as a sign language interpreter. After that he taught for twenty-four years in the areas of Special Education and Technology in both elementary and middle schools.
During his teaching career, he began writing the devotionals that have become the Daily Enduring Truth devotional series available here. The devotionals were birthed in his own spiritual journey as he sought to read the Bible through every year and share his thoughts, struggles and dreams with his friends. He also began writing fiction with an emphasis on crime and mystery. He retired in 2016 in part to take care of his wife who was diagnosed with breast cancer in January of that year. The personal tale of that journey is in a soon to be published book called “God’s Got This.”
His publishing schedule is to finish compiling and editing the Sunrise Edition of Daily Enduring Truth, edit and publish God’s Got This, and then work on his fiction. He has a short story coming out in an anthology in July that will be available soon.
He writes daily devotionals that can be seen at Daily Enduring Truth (http://dailyenduringtruth.com), literary reviews and personal writing is published at Ice Cream Castles (http://bothsidesofwriting.wordpress.com), and keeps a personal journal at Bob James – The Author (http://bobjamesauthor.com). He will interact with his readers there and on his Facebook Author page Bob James – the Writer (https://www.facebook.com/BobJamesauthor/)
As if all this wasn’t enough, Bob has been involved in scholastic chess as a coach, Tournament Director, and organizer for over 20 years through the Optimist Coastal Bend Chess Federation and the Texas Chess Association. He is working to develop a book for beginning chess players based on his experiences working with players at the elementary and middle school level.
