“This book stands alone as a resource for understanding the roles and responsibilities of gatekeepers and to assist churches and ministries in identifying those who are called in order to train and equip them for the ministry of the Body of Christ.”

Author James A. Durham points out that the Bible states, “And he set the gatekeepers at the gates of the house of the Lord, so that no one who was in any way unclean should enter.” (2 Chronicles 23:19) The purpose of Durham’s new book, GATEKEEPERS ARISE! ($16.99, paperback, 978-1-62509-606-7; $8.99, e-book, 978-1-62509-607-4) is to assist churches and disciples of Jesus to understand the role and responsibilities of “gatekeepers” and to seek understanding about his or her calling.

“There is no other book on this subject available today,” states the author. “This book stands alone as a resource for understanding the roles and responsibilities of gatekeepers and to assist churches and ministries in identifying those who are called in order to train and equip them for the ministry of the Body of Christ.”

After serving as a pastor for more than forty-four years, including thirteen years as a pastor and church planter and almost thirty years as an active duty army Chaplain, James retired from the military at the rank of Colonel. James is a graduate of Oklahoma State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology; Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas with a Master’s degree in Theology and the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College. His many years of military training and leadership combined with his long service as a church pastor have given him the background and training needed to be an authority in this area of ministry.
