It is usually helpful to know something about the background of a writer. The following is a brief summary of Jim Bramlett's background.
In 1974, due to a call into full-time Christian ministry, Jim retired as a regular officer and Lt. Colonel in the U.S. Air Force after 20 years of distinguished military service. He was led to join Pat Robertson and the Christian Broadcasting Network where he soon headed and helped pioneer the national and later international network of more than 60 counseling centers. He also helped start and headed CBN's first personnel department and human resources function. Jim was a Vice President of over both counseling and human resources until he felt led to resign in 1983.
Jim continued in evangelistic work and with freelance Christian writing. He has written five nationally selling Christian books and many articles and has won a coveted Amy Writing Award.
From 1991 to 2001 he was special assistant to the founder and president of Campus Crusade for Christ International, Dr. Bill Bright. Campus Crusade for Christ has more than 25,000 full-time staff and 553,000 trained volunteer staff in 196 countries in areas representing 99.6 percent of the world's population.
Jim's church affiliation has been Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Assemblies of God and nondenominational, and prefers to just be called "a follower of Jesus."
It was in 1971 that Jim says the Lord first began showing him that we are in the last days, prompting an immediate study and continuing interest in biblical prophecy, but he says it was as though the Lord began to "shout it" to him in 1993.
Jim has a B.A. degree from the University of Miami (Florida), an M.B.A. from the Ohio State University, and he is a graduate of the Industrial College of the Armed Forces and three other lengthy military professional and managment schools. He is married and has three grown sons.
