Evolution: Becoming a Criminal 

The true story of a rebellious teen whose decisions lead him from a life of privilege to become a criminal, and “commit one of the boldest heists in American History” - The Hollywood Reporter. 

Whether recounting his sobering flying experiences, the time he met the pope, his encounter with the “Weed Man,” or his “lead foot,” Father Jim teaches us lessons through powerful storytelling. As he takes us along on his journey from getting kicked out of seminary to hosting celebrities, such as Dolly Parton, Harry Connick Jr., Martin Short, Bill Cosby, and former first lady Laura Bush, at his small Kentucky parish, Father Jim shines a light into the corners of the human heart to expose our need for God and the love He alone can give us. You will laugh, cry, and be taken aback by his honesty. In all, Father Jim shows us what it means to love God, love others, and live life Among Friends.
