The book of James is immensely controversial to some (ask Martin Luther), yet Anthony Selvaggio expertly opens up and shows us that this part of God's inspired Word is as relevant to each of us right now as it was to the struggling Christians late in the first century.
You will find that James' letter is one of pastoral concern to the scattered Christians who suffered a great deal of persecution, and who faced many challenges every day just as we do. His intention is to be practical and encouraging, yet there is also stern warning and a plea for them to get their focus right and to live like Christians, putting their faith to work as they wait patiently for Christ's second coming.
D.5 Stars Out Of 5May 3, 2009D.In The 24/7 Christian, Anthony Selvaggio (J.D., M.Div) skillfully introduces us to the epistle of James who has much to say regarding the crucial subject of the Christian life. As the brother of Jesus, James saw firsthand how to live a wise and victorious Christian life. James imparts this wisdom from his pastor's heart wanting the best for his flock, and he accomplishes this gently yet with imperative (50 commands in 108 verses). James challenges the reader to put faith in action and sets the bar high in living the Christian life through the power of Christ. "Throughout his epistle James touches upon such practical matters as dealing with trials and temptations, the need for wisdom, dealing with wealth and poverty, responding to the Word of God, avoiding partiality, evidencing our faith through deeds, controlling our speech and our passions, preventing pride, the power of prayer and the need to correct our fellow believers (21)." The 24/7 Christian is an intensely practical and powerful book which spurs the reader to action, yet gives hope and encouragement for the journey.
