No matter how enthusiastically we embrace doctrinal teaching it has no real power unless accompanied by action. In this study, James Boice tackles key areas of conflict in the Christian's life - avoiding hypocrisy, guarding our tongues, using our wealth appropriately, perseverance. If you really believe, then it will show in your life. The book of James is a practical book, too practical in dealing with our own shortcomings, errors and sins! It has abiding relevance for Christian men and women today. It is so direct that we cannot easily dismiss or escape from James' teaching. Prepare to be challenged! Ryken says "Readers will have a richer understanding of what it means to have a faith that really works."
