James - the Wisdom of the Brother of Jesus (Reading The Bible Today Series)

John Dickson

$19.99

Paperback

The Reading the Bible Today series of non-technical commentaries is devoted to presenting careful scholarship in a way that everyone can understand and enjoy.

James, more than most books of the Bible, shoots straight from the hip. James has little time for sophisticated rhetoric and fine argument. He simply and urgently calls on believers to look like real believers, to see where we have deviated from Christ's path of love and come back into humble recognition of our need for divine mercy.
