About "James (N.t Wright For Everyone Bible Study Guide Series)"
The guides in this series by Tom Wright can be used on their own or alongside his New Testament for Everyone commentaries. They are designed to help you understand the Bible in fresh ways under the guidance of one of the world's leading New Testament scholars. Every generation in the church worries, rightly, about people who just glide along, who appear to enjoy what they hear, and yet who don't seem to make any real difference. James faced a similar situation during the very first days of the church. So it's not surprising that translating belief into action - making sure that faith is the real thing - is near the heart of his message. That kind of faith, he explains, is the faith that matters, the faith that justifies, the faith that saves. We need that kind of faith today. These nine studies on James's passionate letter help us to live out a faith that makes a difference.
