In Book Study: Letter of James (NT365), Dr. William Varner presents the practical meaning and unifying thought of the Letter of James in a way that will help you effectively communicate them to others. This study presents a fresh perspective on James the man and also James the letter, showing how the emphasis on works complements rather than contradicts Paul’s emphasis on faith. Walking you through each chapter of this letter verse by verse, Dr. Varner will illustrate how reading James as a Wisdom book reveals its practical meaning and relevance for today.
