Expository Notes on the Epistle of James


Loizeaux Brothers 1947

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


James, the brother of Jesus, occupied a prominent place in the Jerusalem church, as is mentioned in the book of Acts. The tone of James bears the imprint of his Jewish upbringing, but his insistence in Acts 15 that Christians were not obligated to follow Jewish customs points to his lifelong wrestling between the Gospel of Christ and the ritual of his Jewish past. These seemingly contradictory sentiments are present in the book of James as well.

This epistle has been met with skepticism—most notably by Martin Luther, who thought it contradictory to the Gospel. Ironside, however, explains that James tactfully outlines a living faith—lives exemplified by righteous living and godly behavior. Most importantly, Ironside shows that James deals not with abstruse doctrinal themes but with practical Christian ethics.

About Harry Allen Ironside

Harry Allen Ironside, one of the twentieth century’s greatest preachers, was born in Toronto, Canada on October 14, 1876. Though his education stopped with grammar school, his fondness for reading and a retentive memory put his learning to use. His scholarship was recognized in academic circles when he received honorary degrees from Wheaton College and Bob Jones University and was invited as frequent lecturer at Dallas Theological Seminary. Dr. Ironside was appointed to the boards of numerous Bible institutes, seminaries, and Christian organizations. He also served as director of the Africa Inland Mission. Ironside preached widely throughout the United States and abroad. He served as pastor of Moody Memorial Church from 1930 to 1948, and during his lifetime, he preached more than 7,000 sermons to over 1.25 million listeners.
