The apostle James, the oldest half-brother of Jesus, was a key leader in the Jerusalem church. During the early days of the young church, the Jewish believers had been scattered by persecution. Out of compassion, James wrote this epistle to confront them and motivate them to test the quality and consistency of their faith.
In this short and powerful book, James gives us practical guidance on issues that also measure our true and living faith and our spiritual fruitfulness. He encourages us to "be doers of the word, and not hearers only," to "draw near to God," and "to be patient ... until the coming of the Lord" (James 1:22; 4:8; 5:7). James calls all believers-then and now-to live a life that demonstrates saving faith marked by godly behavior.
