A writer with a purpose. James M. Becher uses fiction to convey truth.

    

Born on June 8, 1943 of a Christian family and accepting Christ at an early age, James M.Becher became a person of faith.  Interested in writing and drama since High School, he graduated from Grace L. Hill Memorial Christian School, where he participated in several plays and got A's in English Grammar.  His interest in writing caused him to write several short stories, poems and articles,  He always sought to incorperate his faith into his writings.  He went on to attend St. Petersburg Jr. College, in St. Petersburg, FL. for two years. While attending a Bible Club on Campus, he found out about a writing contest that he entered and won second prize, with a Biblical short story, called "Beggarman-Thief." After Jr. College, he attended Bob Jones University, in Greenville, S.C., where he acted on their radio drama series, "Miracles." While there, he felt the call of God to preach. James obtained his B.A. degree in Bible-Lit at Clearwater Christian College, and went on to the Biblical School of Theology (now Biblical Seminary) in Hatfield, Pennsylvania, where he graduated in 1974 with a M.Div.

He was ordained in November of 1974 at the Church-Of-God-in-Christ in Philadelphia, PA, where he had been serving part time while in Seminary. Rev. Becher served as assistant pastor there for several years. He then served in many different areas of Ministry over the next several years, one of which was a foreign student ministry, which is where he met his dear wife, Berenice from Venezeula.   They were married in 1980 in St. Petersburg, FL, where they took care of a retirement home, where James was also the Chaplain.  In 1989, they went to Veneuezula for an extended stay, where, along with teaching English to business people, James completed his purposeful time travel novel,  "Impossible Journey."  Upon returning to the US, he also completed the Biblical novel, "OF SUCH IS THE KINGDOM," which he had started before they left, and of which the short story, "Begarman-Thief" was a part.  It was published by PublishAmerica in 2003. 

Also shortly after returning to US, James began publishing his self-help ezine,  "Inspirational Success Tips,"  his articles from which now form his self-help book "Principles of the Kingdom."

Later, he revised the sci-fi novel, "IMPOSSIBLE JOURNEY, A Tale of Times and Truth," and it was published in January of 2005.   It is also available on Kindle

He recently revised and expanded the Biblical novel, "OF SUCH IS THE KINGDOM, A Novel of Biblical Times"  and published it also as an e-book, available in many formats on Smashwords. com or on Kindle.   (see also: My Unique Biblical Fiction Novel).    The print version is NOW split into 2, Parts I&II together as A Novel of The Christ and the Roman Empire , and Part III,"Power and Persecution, A Novel of the Early Church and the Roman Empire", separate as the sequel.    

James also just completed a short self-help book (or booklet--roughly 18,000 words) based on his articles from his ezine with quotable quotes for each chapter. It's titled "Principles of the Kingdom (God's success principles) and was published in print in 2012 by PublishAmerica and is also an e-book available in many formats on Smashwords.com.

 James is now teaching a Bible class and occasionally preaching  at Faith Presbyterian Church in Pembroke Pines, Florida.   Last Christmas season, he preached his "Christmas Victory" message, which resulted in the writing of his latest novel, "The Christmas Victory, A Gem of A Sermon, All Wrapped Up in a Historical Novel."  which was published in July of 2014.   It is now available both in print and as an eBook on the publisher's websit. (See under books.)
