Larry James (b.1963) is a local artist who focuses on Judeo-Christian themes. He is the author and illustrator of Abraham’s Journey to Christ (2005), a thematic survey of the biblical Faith as conveyed by ‘the people of the Book’ that runs a fine thread through the Old Testament, the Intertestamental Period, the New Testament, meandering through secular history up to the birth of modern Israel on 15 May 1945. In short, the Creation, the Fall, Redemption and Restoration.

The writing is accompanied by 143 original paintings scanned into print (Hardcover, 224pp @ $50.00 email: larryjames@singnet.com.sg).

SIGNS–a book written and illustrated by Larry James (2012-)

Why this? While interacting with the online Judeo-Christian community for some recent months, I was quickened in the spirit to the reality of man’s utter depravity and his spiraling decay. With this stark truth came the dire need to inform the uninformed, the concerned and the careless of what is and what is to come in the twinkling of an eye – the apocalyptic age. There will be blood and some will burn! ~ L.J 2012

ACKNOWLEDGMENT
Glory to God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, thanking Him for inspiring and sanctifying the work
And for the scholarly work of the saints who labored to disciple men in sound doctrine
To those who have walked the extra mile with this eccentric – thank you
Lastly, thank You – Holy Spirit – without whom there would not be this synergy.

FOREWORD

“Larry has utilized his artistic talent in a very distinctive way to present an often difficult and yet interesting angle towards eschatology. Readers will find his work engaging and his presentation unique through the use of his own personal art works.” ~Rev Mark Poh, Senior Pastor, Emmanuel Assembly of God (Singapore)

“The work of Larry James brings out the reality of the Biblical narrative in striking colours and is thus a stirring invitation to the viewers to have their own personal narratives joined to the life brought to us by Jesus Christ!” ~LT. [Lawrence Theodore Jeyachandran] Executive Director in Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (Asia-Pacific) April 2003-September 2012.

AFTER THE DELUGE – NOAH’S NAIVE WORLD

Noah's Naive World

Year: 2011
Media: Oil on canvas
Size: 4’X5′

Thought : His father named him Noah meaning ‘This one will comfort us concerning our work and the toil of our hands, because the ground which the LORD has cursed’ Genesis 5.29. Comfort? ‘Noah found grace in the eyes of God’ and was given the hands-on task of building the ark in the midst of a heat wave that lasted a hundred years whereupon the rain and flood descended. And so the mocking stilled as Noah ‘the preacher of righteousness’ ultimately ushered the destruction of man and beast through a flood. Noah must have been brilliantly endowed with a slant for hard work, architecture and husbandry. (Some say that the next big ship appeared only at the dawn of the nuclear age) Wonder if any of the 8 survivors suffered any post-Flood psychosis having witnessed the death of mankind, isolation and the morbid reality of a deconstructed world. One thing’s for sure they held our genes. Then to think of the ark that took a 100 years of labor, used for 150 days or more, and abandoned on Mt.Ararat could lure man to research the biblical record of a global flood? After the flood, the gifted man planted a vineyard, got drunk on sour grapes and blurted a curse that plagued a lineage. But give the man his due – Noah the ultimate working-class dog craved for a Tiger.
