James was the half-brother of Jesus, and one of the pillars of the first Christian church in Jerusalem. His words are humble and some of the finest examinations of true Christian faith in the New Testament epistles. The book of James delivers expansive and sublime truths about faith and religion in bite-sized phrases. This delivery makes his teachings both astounding and readily applicable to followers of Jesus.
Throughout this book, we are challenged to contend with the difference between beliefs that are simply stated and those that reveal an authentic faith in Jesus.
