Bestselling, Award-nominated Author
J. A. Bouma
Nobody should have to read bad religious fiction—whether its cheesy plots with pat answers or misrepresentations of the Christian faith and the Bible. That’s why I want to tell compelling, propulsive stories that thrill as much as inspire, while offering a dose of insight along the way.
When not putting fingers to keyboard, I love vintage jazz vinyl, a glass of Malbec, and an epic read—preferably together. I call Grand Rapids home with my wonderfully adorable and supportive wife, two blessed kiddos, and one rambunctious boxer-pug-terrier.
An ancient threat. A sacred relic. A belief that hangs in the balance.
A Reimagined Faith
What do you do when the faith you grew up with no longer makes sense?
The Church’s future is history. Devour a new religious sci-fi apocalyptic epic.
Grail of Power
A mythic grail. A legendary quest. Blood with the power to save.
