We use this in our small group ladies' Bible study and have found this to be a deep and challenging study and we all have found good life application. We all appreciate studying a book going verse by verse. I would highly recommend this for a small group study.
We are in the middle of this study in our Bible Study at church and have seen a growth in our understanding of faith that works. For some it is a reminder, for others it seems to be a match that is lighting their fire. Praying the "flame" ignites in all of us. Good solid study on what it takes to grow our faith into movement and service to God and His children.
This is my favorite study out of the ones my Bible study group has done. James is so blunt, but gives us such practical advice God wants us to follow. It has also been the best study for rich and meaningful discussion.
Good resource book for teenagers feeling troubled or lost. This book shows them to keep their faith in God and steadfast in his word and he will carry them through whatever it is they are going through.
