James Mulholland

James Mulholland is a nationally recognized author and speaker. He has written three bestselling books – Praying Like Jesus, If Grace Is True, and If God Is Love. The “grace” books were co-authored with his friend, Philip Gulley. In these books, Mulholland and Gulley proclaimed a more gracious Christian theology, one that welcomed and included all people. James served as a pastor for over twenty years, serving both United Methodist and Quaker churches. During those years, he was involved in various social justice efforts including peacemaking, non-violent communication, workforce development, and prisoner reintegration. In recent years, James has been moving away from Christianity. He now identifies as a non-religious person. His newest book, Leaving Your Religion, was released in 2014. He is presently the Executive Director of Companion Communities in Development Alternatives (CoCoDA) which supports community development work in El Salvador. He is married and the father of six.
