About the Author

Jim Atwood is a retired Presbyterian Minister who was born in Detroit, Michigan, but lived most of his life in the South. He has been a son, an athlete, a pastor to three congregations, a missionary and student worker in Japan, and an activist for peace and justice. He is a grateful husband, proud father, doting grandfather, minister's spouse, and is addicted to sports and travel. He graduated in physical education from Florida State University, and holds Master's degrees from Union and Princeton Theological Seminaries, and a Doctor of Ministry Degree from McCormick Theological Seminary. He serves on the National Boards of The Presbyterian Peace Fellowship and The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.

His wife, Roxana, is also a retired Presbyterian Pastor. They have two children, Mebane and David, and four grandchildren. All of the above experiences, interests, avocations and relationships furnish grist for Jim's humor mill.
