James, the half-brother of Jesus, wrote his letter as a pastor to Christians who were cast abroad and marginalized for their faith. Covering many topics, James makes it clear that the life that truly sees the gospel is changed by it. Be warned, everything is on the table. James will call us to evaluate the way we deal with hardship, handle money, use our words, and plan our futures. But if we will let him in, James’s letter has great potential for our lives. This is how James gets the gospel on the ground – and helps us understand how the reality of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus changes everything about who we are, what we love, and how we live.
