What’s New at THE BIBLE Baptist Church

We are happy to announce the arrival of a new book by Brother James; and a very different kind of book.

The rather lengthy title is
THE TIRE TRACKS: True Stories of Childhood, Adventure, Exploration and Friendship

cover-tire_tracksThese are tales about what it means to learn of life and death and trust and companionship, as seen through the eyes of two boys, who from the age of six to twelve roamed deep into the woods and waterways, into and out of one wild scrape after another. The project began long ago as a gift to Brother James’ nieces, was set aside for two decades, and reworked and completed in the fall of 2013.

Brother James said, “Everything I have learned in my life about writing is poured forth in this book. Some will be disappointed that it is not a commentary or exposition, but I believe that all who read it will enjoy it greatly, and will glean the intended lessons therefrom.”

Whether this is a children’s book for adults or an adult’s book for children is hard to say, but we assure you this trip into a time when the land was free and boys were safe to explore it will be a welcome escape in these troubled times.
