BRAKETIME - Slowing Down to Catch up with God

In his book “BRAKETIME: Slowing Down to Catch Up with God,” author James Scott uses deeply personal stories and struggles to share the importance of braking from the busyness of life and putting the Lord first. James shares many funny and true stories from his years in ministry to encourage his readers to become better and more Godly people. The book will help you grow closer to the Lord, love Him with everything you have while encouraging you to love your neighbor as yourself. This is all done with the humor, insight and wisdom of a husband, dad, preacher and cowboy. If you will open your heart, the Lord will use James’ words to draw you closer to Him.

—Dr. Jeff Walker, Senior Pastor ,Grace Baptist Church, Brandon Mississippi 

“BRAKETIME: Slowing Down to Catch Up with God” by former full-time cowboy James Scott, turned cowboy-evangelist, is a passionate appeal and intense reminder that we can be busy doing work for the Master and forget to spend time with the Master. I am reminded of Mary’s protest to Jesus about her sister Martha’s unwillingness to help cook but rather was sitting at His (Jesus’) feet taking in every word He spoke. Jesus told Mary that “Martha has chosen better.” Boy, do we need to “choose better.” James’ wisdom, vivid stories, and common “cowboy” sense is an appeal to “choose better”! James addresses a range of pressing personal, family, and cultural issues common to us all while seamlessly integrating Scripture in a way that is convincing and convicting. I have known James for many years. Knowing him is to my advantage when I read this book because I can read it using his voice! When I am reading, I feel like we are literally having a conversation. Yes, James writes exactly the way he talks! What a refreshing turn from the sanitized approach to writing on Christian topics and issues. You will find this book entertaining, engaging, and directly to the point! Thank you, James and Rebecca, for your passion for ministry, partnership in the spread of the Gospel, and especially for your friendship!

James Scott is God’s cowboy preacher! In his new book “BRAKETIME: Slowing Down to Catch Up with God,” James speaks directly from his heart and from God’s Word to each reader. He urges us to slow down in order to take time to listen to the Lord speak to us. On every page he proclaims the Gospel, pleads with the reader to trust Christ, and praises God for His work in the lives of God’s people. As a passionate follower of Jesus, James writes on important subjects for everyday Christian living. He challenges those who want to be disciples of Jesus to surrender fully to Christ, to grow in their faith (“Daycare Christianity”), and to share the gospel with other while they have the opportunity. He is a straight shooter who takes aim at “Cadillac Religiosity” and shares openly and without apology about God’s goodness and grace.
