Students wrestling to apply the teachings of Jesus to their everyday lives. Communities plagued by divisiveness and hypocrisy, with an emphasis on wealth and status. That's the book of James...and the story of our modern lives.
A Youth Worker's Commentary on James has the entire NIV biblical text printed alongside a deeply rich, yet readable look into the meaning of this marvelous book. Featuring dozens of word studies, with fascinating historical accounts and personal stories, this book also includes a large section of thought-provoking questions to get your students thinking and talking.
You'll find this an invaluable aid for message and lesson preparation as you achieve a solid understanding of James, including its historical context, rationale, and meaning.

One reason for writing these books is that most curriculums that are now available for youth leaders and their students are just skimming the books of the Bible (example: 4-12 lessons on the Gospel of John that do not go beyond the surface of the text). We are talking about writing books that would have the entire Biblical text printed in each book. Books that actually go deeper into the meaning of the text. We are thinking of dozens of word and character studies, with many fascinating historical and personal stories, followed by in depth thought provoking questions. This series of books will include insights and observations not usually covered in typical commentaries.
