About the Study
In the Letter of James, the author urges and encourages his readers to persevere through the temptation and trials of daily life by example of his own learned wisdom. His letter exemplifies what it means to live consistently in Christ and serves as a guide that will resonate with anyone looking to pursue a godlier life.
This next installment in the OneBook Daily-Weekly series is a careful and perceptive study of James from Abson Joseph, an associate professor of New Testament. Joseph leads disciples through an eight-week course of understanding, self-reflection, and real-world application of the teachings of James. Each week carries themes of hospitality, humility, faith, intentionality in our speech and actions, community, and, most importantly, prayer.
Joseph’s masterful juxtaposition of godliness versus worldliness woven throughout the text remind the reader they are a part of a community of other believers working toward a life of continual spiritual development. This book is for anyone who wants to actively be stronger in Christ no matter where they are on their journey.
