As a good communicator, James addressed his readers directly and pointedly, with vivid images from ordinary life and attention-gripping statements. This rich exposition brings James' letter to life for today's reader.

Alec Motyer is himself gripped by James' energy and concern for practical Christianity.

The letter shows how a genuine faith is a tested faith; how encounter with difficulties is an essential part of the growth to Christian maturity.

This book powerfully brings out James' memorable themes - the link between enduring trials and maturity; the question of perfection; the good gifts of God; faith, works and Christian concern in a world of human need; the implications of careless and evil words; the meaning of war; the church and healing; confession of sin; and the need for active purity of life. For James, genuine Christianity is practical. It is a tested faith. In this admirable exposition, Alec Motyer captures James' forthright and powerful message for today.
