The epistle of James offers profound advice for everyday life and contains "the breath of heaven and the warmth of human sympathy and love." In August, 1912, Robertson delivered a series of lectures on practical aspects of ethics as found in the book of James. He repeated these enormously popular lectures in 1913 at the Winona Bible Conference, and this volume is the result of many requests for publication. In addition to introductory material, this volume includes expanded versions of those lectures, and is written for ministers, students of the Bible, and teachers. Technical language and the Greek text are placed in parentheses and footnotes, making this volume accessible for English-only study.

About Archibald Thomas Robertson
Archibald Thomas Robertson was born on November 6, 1863 in Chatham, Virginia, during the height of the Civil War. His family moved to Statesville, North Carolina, where he grew up. He was baptized in 1876 and immediately recognized God’s call to preach, and attended Wake Forest College. Upon graduation in 1885, Robertson entered The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he devoted himself to Greek studies under John Broadus. He was appointed Greek instructor as a student, and received his Th.M. in 1888. Robertson became an associate professor in 1890, and then served as Professor of New Testament Interpretation from 1895 to 1934. He devoted his life to preaching, teaching, scholarly activities, and giving public lectures, many of which have been reproduced in book form in this collection. He was a founding member of the Baptist World Alliance, and participated in numerous Bible conferences with Dwight Moody and F. B. Meyer.
