About James Greig

James is an enthusiastic guide, well used to ‘cutting a 

  channel’ to make complicated topics accessible and 

    relevant. He studied Law at Kings College London and

     Theology at Cambridge.  His career in private legal

      practice in London and Oxford was broken by 9 years in

     full-time Christian ministry, teaching the Bible in collegiate

    cities and inner-city London. He is married to Emily with

   two adult children. 

                                               James has visited many of the best-known museums in the 

                                          world for manuscripts and biblical artefacts, including the

                                 Pergamon Museum in Berlin, Ashmolean in Oxford, Oriental Institute in Chicago, Louvre in Paris, National Archaeological Museum in Athens and Israel Museum

and Shrine of the Book Museum in Jerusalem.  


He has been on two archaeological tours in Israel.  He enjoyed the first one so much that he was asked to lead one of the groups on his second tour!  He has led tours in the British Museum for over 30 years and trained a number of other guides.
