James is survived by his wife: Kathleen Phillips, (Family) Crystal, Steven, Grandkids: Jordan, Matthew, Briana, Ben, Samantha, and great grandkids Cameron & Aurora, (Sisters) Terry, Stella, Linda, Lisa, Anne and Families.  

James was well educated not only with school but self-motivated to teach himself. He was involved in so many things.

What he loved the most was writing books to show that truth matters and did this by using scripture only. He called it: A Better Bible Study Method. He was extremely passionate about this.

James was the best husband anyone could ask for. He was very romantic and would sing to me often. He was very light on his feet and the grandkids would catch us dancing in the kitchen. He helped raise 3 of our grandchildren and loved them as his own. He had so much love to give.

He came from a big family with 5 sisters and a lot of nieces and nephews. He loved going to Illinois to visit the family.  When he went at Christmas time, he would arrive singing “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” by Elvis. James made a huge impact on so many people. Not only from his school days and family but through his Bible study books he wrote. He is loved very dearly by so many

My deepest condolences and prayers to Jim's family. I haven't had the pleasure to meet you all, but I worked closely with Jim in his work with Dr. Alan Keyes. He's a great man with a great heart. I pray for your strength and resolve with confidence he's walking the golden bridge as we speak. If you put your faith before yourself, you're never truly gone. Jim is a man who's done just that.


Prayers for Kathleen and the Family, strength and peace knowing Jim will in the resurrection awake to be with God and Our Lord Jesus Christ.  Amen 

From so many Alan Keyes colleagues who loved James

We send our condolences with deep and abiding appreciation, and profound respect, for James' abundant virtues. He was a joy to know and work with, a wonderful and loyal friend, and an ever-faithful brother in Christ. This world is a poorer place without James, although Heaven is rejoicing. Our comfort is in the Word of God. Psalm 23... Mary Parker Lewis
