There is no other writing in the Bible quite like the letter of James. In direct, blunt-style, James (the half-brother of Jesus) shares wisdom on overcoming challenges that can trip us up and keep us from growing to maturity as Christ-followers.
The closest thing to wisdom literature in the New Testament – it’s kind of like the "Proverbs of the New Testament." And the wisdom found in this short book is as relevant today as it was in the first century. If you want a primer on living out a life in Christ, this is it: trials, patience, relationships, self-control, God's will ... it's all here.
