In our endeavour to faithfully apply Jesus' teaching we are cognizant of being true to His word. So, we can take comfort in Robert Solomon’s helpful assurance: “In James, we clearly hear the voice of Jesus, and are therefore encouraged to listen carefully and take heed.”
The book resonates with and reiterates the teachings of the Lord. James takes great pain to repeat these teachings in light of their application to the beliefs and practices of the church that must be discovered, valued, and actively practised – this is God’s will for us.
This book will be useful to those who wish to read, study, and meditate on the epistle of James. It may be useful to pastors and preachers, Bible study leaders, small group leaders, and others who teach the Bible. A great resource for personal Bible study as well as for use by groups.
“To encounter the richness of the sermons of the Book of James you need not only a skilled biblical scholar but also a skilful and passionate preacher. Robert Solomon is one such person and in this book we encounter sermons which allow us to encounter Jesus today.”
Rev Professor David Wilkinson
Principal, St John’s College, Durham University, UK
“This book demonstrates how relevant the book of James is to contemporary Christians. It shows how the study of the Word can result in life lessons that challenge and inspire us and motivate us to follow the path of obedience. The fruit of careful and devout study of the Word is presented in language that lay persons can read and understand.”
