THE letter of James

 

The perspective taken in this study course on the Letter of James is “Faith on Trial.” Within its five short chapters, James seems to be putting our faith to the test. Is my faith genuine, or is it a cheap imitation?

D. A. Hayes comments: “The letter speaks to us where we are in language we can understand. Its short sentences go like shots straight to the mark. We feel the impact and the impress of them. There is an energy behind them and a reality in them that makes them live in our thoughts.”

The purpose of the letter is not to teach doctrine so much as to help us apply doctrine to our lives. In terms of Christ’s resurrection, for instance, it shows us how we should display the life of the risen Christ to those about us.

This study will challenge you to review your life and assess the degree to which you are living out your faith in Christ.
