Joel Thimell


Passionate about writing, food and travel, his love of adventure led Joel to hitchhike from Kenya to South Africa, whitewater-raft the Zambezi River, canoe the Okavango Delta, explore the Ngorongoro Crater, climb Mt.Kilimanjaro, and hike the Chimanimani Mountains. The thrill and terror of those first-hand experiences are brought to life in Joel's debut novel, "Long Road Out of Ur." Joel began his career as a government bureaucrat and erstwhile journalist and is now making amends to society as a starving author. He shares his non-existent garden in Tennessee with endless hordes of mosquitoes, mobs of psychotic squirrels, three jack rabbits, a ravenous herd of deer and an elusive mole named Darwin.

If I say the name, "Lot," what picture comes to your mind? If you're like many Christians, I suspect it's a villain or a fool, at best. And the Genesis narrative can easily be read that way. So why did the Apostle Peter describe Lot as a "righteous man" who "was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard?"

I don't have a simple one sentence answer to that question. **Spoiler Alert** Instead I wrote a historical fiction titled, "Long Road Out of Ur." My hope is that readers will see that the God of the Old Testament is full of love, compassion and grace for rebels like Lot and me, just as He is in the New Testament.
