‘A Review’ Of One’s Early Autobiography

YOUNG SPIRITUAL TRAMP – truth stranger than fiction!

296 pages & 20 illustrations

" James Thompson is certainly well known and admired as the Animal Padre. However, little has been known about his early life. 'Young Spiritual Tramp' is written with honesty, sincerity and great humour. As a sensitive young fellow he suffered at the hand of bullies and turned for refuge in religion as a youth. But such a youngster was hardly to keep on the straight and narrow himself when even a deacon who denounced drink from the 'set fawr' is to be found with a crate of ale in the back of his car! And then when a welsh lay preacher, with fiery fervour from the pulpit, preaches on his own, hither to, secret temptation then not only are sedate ladies and young girls shocked to the core; the author himself ceases to be pious and fluctuates between differing lifestyles. Much - much - more is to follow; including eye opening escapades in Ulster, and not least his breath taking elopement to Scotland as a Baptist minister in 1954. This author appears as intensely sincere, irresistibly humorous and incredibly revealing. Yes, and also increasingly heart touching. There are parts in this book when one can laugh out loud, and others when one could almost weep. "
