How do we face difficulties in the Christian life? It is all very well to believe; how do we go on to put our faith into practice day by day? In this basically practical letter written to those scattered throughout the early Christian world, James shows how a genuine faith is a tested faith;how encounter with difficulties is an essential part of the growth to Christian maturity. He speaks too of the control of the tongue; of concern for the needy and helpless; of a life of daily purity. This helpful, straightforward explanation of the Letter of James shows the way to practical Christian living today. Before his present position as Deputy Principal of Tyndale Hall, Bristol, the Rev. J. A. Motyer, MA,BD, was Vicar of St Luke’s Church, Hampstead. He is author of several books including THE RICHNESS OF CHRIST (studies in Philippians) and THE REVELATION OF THE DIVINE NAME, and is Old Testament Editor of THE NEW BIBLE COMMENTARY:REVISED; he has also contributed to THE NEW BIBLE DICTIONARY.
