James Lambert column
James Lambert has a broad business background. After receiving his undergraduate degree from Linfield College (McMinnville, Oregon), Lambert pursued a career in banking by working in various management capacities for Crocker Bank, San Diego Trust & Savings Bank and First Interstate Bank (between 1973 and 1995). By 1990 Lambert received his Master in Business Administration from National University (San Diego). For 3 years, Lambert also taught Finance at Mira Costa Community College.

By late 1997, Lambert released his first book, "Porn in America" (Huntington House Publishers). Over the course of the next few years the author made a number of national media appearances that included: The O'Reilly Factor (FNC), BBC morning news, Hardcopy (Paramount Pictures), FNC's Morning News, the 700 Club (the Family Channel), the TBN network, 100 Huntley Street (Canada) and numerous affiliates of CBS, NBC & ABC television.

From 1998 to 2000, James worked as a loan sales agent under the guidance of a respected RE loan veteran, Ken Terrill. By 2000, Lambert started his own company, James L. Lambert Loans. He successfully operated this company until 2009 when he began working on doing research for his new book. By February of 2012, James released his second book, "16 Amazing Stories of Divine Intervention" (Xulon Press). With the release of his second book, Lambert has made guest appearances in 17 states. He still plans on traveling around the country (in 2014) telling audiences, viewers and (radio) listeners about some of the remarkable stories in his new book.

The author has made appearances on 8 television programs, dozens of radio shows and numerous churches around the country (since his second book was released). In addition to this work, Lambert regularly shares Christ on public sidewalks in front of public high schools around Southern California. Sales of his book, supports this worthwhile outreach.
