This book looks at the central doctrine of the Christian Religion; the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The ancient story of the Jewish carpenter is brought out into the harsh light of 21st Century beliefs and cultural “truths” and tested to see how it stands against the modern presuppositions. Who was this poor Jewish carpenter’s son? Can belief in miracles really be acceptable in the modern reality? How does the modern concept of entropy, the second law of thermal dynamics play into the ancient story? Was the resurrection a physical reality? How does the promise of the Jewish carpenter relate to us today? These questions are addressed and more, and the author relates his own experiences with death and the loss of loved ones.

Often compared to Gone with the Wind, Midwest Book Review called Noble Cause “a riveting piece of historical fiction.”
This is the tale of Colonel Alexander Hunter, a dauntless and daring Confederate cavalry officer, who, with his band of intrepid outcasts, becomes a legend in the rolling hills of northern Virginia. Inspired by love of country and guided by a sense of duty and honor, Hunter must make a desperate choice when he discovers the woman he promised his dying brother he would protect is the Union spy he vowed to his men he would destroy.
Readers will discover the fine line between friends and enemies when the paths of these two tenacious foes cross by the fates of war and their destinies become entwined forever.
Author Jessica James uniquely blends elements of romantic and historical fiction in this deeply personal and poignant tale that, according to one reviewer, “transcends the pages to settle in the very marrow of the reader’s bones.” Winner of numerous national awards, James has received critical acclaim for this page-turning story of courage, honor, and enduring love.
Destined for an honored place among the classics of the American Civil War, Noble Cause is a book to read, and keep, and remember forever.
