This commentary and Bible course covers the Epistle of James, one of the most overlooked but practical books in the New Testament.
Though James was written to Jewish believers in the early days of the church age, it is needed today as never before. We can understand its importance when we consider the condition of churches in our day, even of the staunchest, most fundamentalist, Bible-believing types of churches.
(1) Persecution and affliction is widespread among Christians in these last days. James addresses this matter in its theme of patience in trials.
(2) Immaturity is rampant among professing Christians today. There are multitudes of people who profess Christ but who remain babes in their knowledge of the Scripture and in scriptural maturity. They are like those to whom James addressed his epistle.
(3) “Easy Believism” is rampant today.
