The Epistle of James is the first of what are considered the general epistles of the New Testament. It is characterized by an insightful and challenging call to live out our faith in the realistic demands and messiness of daily living. Each of the five chapters is packed with practical illustrations designed to motivate the will and strengthen the heart as we seek to grasp the life-altering truth taught by James.
