James also writes for Our Daily Bread, and holds degrees from Westmont College, Princeton and Gordon Conwell Theological Seminaries. He is a frequent guest on radio and television and a popular speaker at conferences and retreats.

James has shared from the depth of experience the secret of parental prayers for children and reveals the truth for effective prayer—God’s Word.
