Converted to the Mormon Church in 1960 at age fourteen, after forty-three years of clinging to that faith, serving a church mission and holding various Ward, Stake and Regional callings, Jim resigned membership in 2003 for no other reason than he could no longer hold to a belief in God. He never considered why the Mormon Church was not true and assumed Mormon Church founder, Joseph Smith, to have been a good, albeit deluded man. Three years later, quite by accident, Jim stumbled across early Mormon polyandry which Church leaders then confirmed was and is contrary to Mormon doctrine. Yet Jim had discovered evidence that early leaders married women who had living husbands. Something was seriously and alarmingly wrong. This led to further research and day after devastating day, Jim discovered more and more of the truth. He somehow had to face and accept and then deal with the fact that Smith was a fraud who deliberately created a hoax to satisfy his own ambitions. Every aspect Jim looked at was demonstrably not true. Writing has been his therapy and six years of full time research has resulted in 'The Mormon Delusion' series. Full details of Jim and his work, endorsements, articles, updates and Exmormon Foundation lecture can be found at The Mormon Delusion web site.
A further work not associated with Mormonism, 'The Bible Delusion', came about following further study of God and his book - God didn't survive the investigation.
