Overview of Lines in the Sand

He came from humble beginnings in Tater Town, Florida, in 1938. But in many ways, James Delmar Robinson has developed a presence among his family and friends that is larger than life. Through his love of storytelling—and his many strengths and weaknesses—he has overcome countless setbacks and harnessed them into an earthly example of God’s love.

Now, in Lines in the Sand, James’s daughter Rena Robinson Gunther shares the amazing story of her father’s life. Combining personal memories and tales passed down through the generations, the self-proclaimed “daddy’s girl” reveals the history and heritage that have kept her bond with her family strong—fueled by the legacy of faith, led by Mama Katie, that has served as a testament to God’s grace to this day.

Within the pages of this memoir, you’ll find a plethora of phrases and sayings that Robinson is fond of quoting—and often slightly misquoting—as a way of humorously explaining the world around him. Most importantly, you’ll discover the importance of the defining lines that truly determine who we are, how we live our lives, and how this concept has been so important to one family’s heritage over time.
