About the Book

            “You were once given a helmet.”

            “A helmet?”  The Traveler thought for a long moment.  “Yes, Soterion—the defender,” he affirmed.

            “You must learn to wear it in battle,” instructed the Preacher.  “You take so many blows to your soul because your intellect is open to the enemy.”

            “When am I in battle?”

            Ishi shook him gently.  “Every day is a battle, Traveler!  Take every thought captive, remember?  Salvation is forever, and yet the need for it occurs in the daily battlefield.  You must work it out with reverential fear and trembling.  Wear your

helmet, Traveler!”


            Fourth in the Jewels of Earth saga, this novel sends the Traveler careening through human history, searching for the mysterious Omnipoint.  He must find it! His supernatural guardian has warned him that beyond was only utter and eternal darkness. Meanwhile, the black magic of the Cabala is distorting reality around him, humanity is dominated by animal compromises, and his immortal enemies seek his life.  Is the beautiful unicorn shadowing his every move a fellow traveler or a dangerous deception?

            How can any of this be human history—his history—your history?

            Wear your helmet, Traveler!



About the Author

            Life is a journey—we all travel!  If we begin with the premise that there is a design to this universe, then the truth of its construction is just waiting to be discovered.  The Jewels of Earth saga follows the exploits of a traveler exploring that design—in his own life—and in a journey through time seeking the components to a mysterious pendant that allows him to see the world as the King sees it.


            A traveler at heart, Jim’s interests flow easily from one topic to another - past, present and future.  Fascination with the scientific method leads seamlessly into the imagination of science fiction, while a love of history and human culture competes with a sense of the mystical and the magical.  The Jewels of Earth series is a narrative compilation of his inspirations, observations, lectures, and research collected over forty years.  His humor, intellect, insecurities, his Christian faith, his strengths and weaknesses, all emerge through his writing, hopefully encouraging his reader to walk along with him, finding jewels to contemplate and treasure in their own lives.             


            A graduate of the University of Colorado and the University of Nebraska College of Law, Jim has been a practicing attorney, an adjunct professor with the University of Phoenix and Colorado Christian University, and a guest speaker at many conferences and gatherings.  Traveling through life with Mary, his wife of thirty-one years, he has been blessed with a son, a daughter-in-law, and a grandson.


            “There is a design to the universe.  Science and theology only confirm this.  The frictions arise when we hold fast to the doctrines of human thought found in either discipline, rather than pursuing Truth.  There is a Designer and a plan; with humble supplication and an open mind, He is willing to share it with us.”
