Excellent book which we used for Sunday school. There was great interest in studying James. Wiersbe's books have wonderful content, but the chapters are manageable with minimum study each week. Of course, some chapters require several weeks for a thorough discussion. The format of the book was looking at five marks of a mature Christian: patient in testing, practices the truth, power over tongue, peacemaker (not troublemaker), and prayerful in trouble. "When you find yourself in the fire, rememb ...more

Love this study!! Warren Wiersbe is a great Christian writer and teacher. He has written "Be" series on both the Old Testament (27 books) and New Testament (23 books).

This book is amazing, so much to learn in the book of James. It would make a great group bible study.

SO far VERY INTERESTING! I love the book of JAmeS and this book opens a lot of new things to me I never thought about.
Shelley Moss
Great analysis of one of my favorite books of the Bible. This book challenged me to live out my christian walk in a more vibrant way. Engaging stories and historical context.
Clara Roberts
This was a maverlous book telling the reader that after justication before God comes the process of santification. A major problem of the church was"a failure on the part of many to live what they profeesed to believe."
Jim Teggelaar
A good, theologically conservative commentary on the book of James. A bit breezy, I would have liked it if he slowed down and spent a little more time in some of the really special texts of the letter.
Jess
This text has good cross-referencing and summaries, without forcing an opinion on the reader beyond what the Bible says. For what it claims to be, it does its job very well.
Melissa
Very good thought provoking book. The stories and such are a little dated, but the material is timeless.
Ian
straight-forward reading, good for a morning devotional
Joel Curtiss

“Christ-formation is God’s ultimate goal for every follower of Christ—that slowly, over time, we will begin to think like Jesus, see things as Jesus would see them, and treat people the same as Jesus would treat them.” 0 likes
“Bible study is kind of like going to the gym and working out. When you study your Bible, you are exercising spiritually. We see this analogy over and over again in Scripture. Paul told Timothy: “Spend your time and energy in the exercise of keeping spiritually fit” (1 Tim. 4:7 TLB). The Greek word used here for “spiritually fit” is gymnasia, which is obviously where we get our English word gymnasium. Paul is telling Timothy to exercise himself spiritually, the implication being that spiritual exercise will help him grow strong in his faith and character. Paul goes on to say in verse 8: “Bodily exercise is all right, but spiritual exercise is much more important and is a tonic for all you do. So exercise yourself spiritually, and practice being a better Christian because that will help you not only now in this life, but in the next life too” (TLB). Peter says the same thing: “… grow in spiritual strength and become better acquainted with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18 TLB).” 0 likes
