Preaching the Word Series: James
James: Faith That Works
R. Kent Hughes
An insightful look at perhaps the most convicting book of the New Testament. This Preaching the Word commentary has clear scriptural exposition and practical application for pastors, teachers and personal Bible study.
The epistle of James is perhaps the most practical--and most convicting--book of the entire New Testament. It is a marvelous exposition of the outworking of genuine Christian faith. True faith works!
In this sixth volume of the Preaching the Word series, Pastor Hughes combines relevant discussion with practical application of the book of James. Major themes include:
- joyful endurance in times of trial
- true wisdom
- recognizing and resisting temptation in a tempting world
- beyond knowing the Word of God: doing
- the telltale signs of real faith
- perils of the tongue
- humility and grace
- the divine prescription for healing
- the prayer of the righteous
A marvelous commentary on a Bible book which is dangerous to read or study--it changes one's life! Like the earlier members of this series, this volume will challenge and equip preachers/teachers and their hearers for wise ministry for Christ founded on faith that works.
