Review:
This Study Guide addresses a study group or an individual approaching the short Letter of James. It opens by summarising the Letter overall as a text concerned to share ideas about patience, wisdom, permanence, faith, and ‘the dangerous power of the tongue’. It then offers ways of reading the text in nine sections, focusing in each section on a specific theme. The sections each offer opening and closing interpretations, detailed questions directed sometimes at interpreting the text and sometimes at inspiring imaginative links to daily life, and suggestions for prayer. Readers or groups might well find this an enlightening route into James.
