The apostle James, the oldest half-brother of Jesus, was a key leader in the Jerusalem church. During the early days of the young church, the Jewish believers had been scattered by persecution. Out of compassion, James wrote this epistle to confront them and motivate them to test the quality and consistency of their faith. In this short and powerful book, James gives us practical guidance on issues that also measure our true and living faith and our spiritual fruitfulness. He encourages us to “be doers of the word, and not hearers only,” to “draw near to God,” and “to be patient . . . until the coming of the Lord” (James 1:22; 4:8; 5:7). James calls all believers—then and now—to live a life that demonstrates saving faith marked by godly behavior. The MacArthur Bible Studies provide intriguing examinations of the whole of Scripture. Each guide incorporates extensive commentary, detailed observations on overriding themes, and probing questions to help you study the Word of God with guidance from John MacArthur.

Has your peace been stolen? Dreams crushed? Hope lost? Life has a way of not turning out like we had wanted. The disciple Peter knew what it was like to go through tough times. Threats. Punishment.

Susy Smith insists she did not write this book. The author of twenty-four works on psychical phenomena is sure the information herein could not have originated within her own subconscious mind because it includes so much about which she could not possibly have any knowledge. She maintains instead that it came to her via automatic writing from a man who says he has been in the spirit world for more than sixty years. Having started her research in the psychical field some twetny years ago as a cynical, agnostic newspaperperson, Susy Smith fought against a belief in the possibility of spirit communication all during the time she was studying and researching the subject. Now, after publicaion of all her books—which include Life Is Forever, ESP and Hypnosis, How to Develop Your ESP, and Confessional of a Psychic, in which she tells of her own gradual psychical development—she admits to having become convinced of the survival of the human soul on the basis of evidence alone. Life is Forever gives case histories which have helped persuade her of this. The Book of James, however, does not bring evidence. It supplies a philosophy of life after death. Whoever wrote it … it is inspiring and challenging reading.

The book of James has been called at times "The Proverbs of the New Testament" because of its practical nature in how to "do life" with God. Do you ever struggle with things like trials and temptations, faith, favoritism, your tongue, pride, quarrels, slander, prayer and how to be patient in suffering? Then you've come to the right place! James confronts all these and more head on and in this power-packed letter to believers. Do you get tired and discouraged feeling that you will never live up to God's standards? Do you want to know God in a deeper more intimate way? Then this study is for you. Your perspective on God will be challenged along with what a relationship with God truly looks like focusing on "being" rather than "doing." Acts 17:28 says, "In Him we live and move and have our being." What does that really look like in our everyday lives? Are you ready to "go deeper" with God? Well, then, let's get started!

No matter where you are on your faith journey, you are invited to kick it up a notch with Serving the Lord, an evangelical Bible study guide on the book of James. There is no better way to grow in spiritual maturity than faithfully serving God and His people, and no better example of a devoted servant than James, the brother of Jesus. James makes it clear that serving the Lord means putting faith into action in tangible ways that produce healthy fruit. Faith that consists merely of good intentions or intellectual assent is incomplete or dead. Authentic faith always produces evidence of holy living and good deeds by the grace and power of the Holy Spirit, such as: • Mercy ministry to the poor • Protecting the defenseless • Rejecting worldliness • Praying for the sick ... and much, much more. Christians are to let all kinds of trials become tests that strengthen their faith and yield righteous works—not to earn salvation but to give evidence of it. The result is spiritual perseverance that leads to eternal glory. It may not make sense to the rest of the world, but believers count troubles as pure joy because in Christ their troubles ultimately have a redemptive purpose. Today is the day to see for yourself what a practical difference Serving the Lord can make in your walk with God.

The lack of serious and sustained investigation of the historical figure of James "the Just," brother of Jesus, is one of the curious oversights in modern critical study of Christian origins. "James the Just and Christian Origins" addresses this problem. The questions that surround this exceedingly important, yet largely ignored figure are several and complicated. Was he really the brother of Jesus? How influential was he in the early church? What was the nature of his relationship to the other apostles, especially to Paul? How did James understand Christianity's relationship to Judaism and to the people of Israel? Out of this grows a very important question: In its generative moment, was Christianity in fact as well as in its self-awareness, a species of Judaism? Contributors from several countries are currently engaged in collaborative study in James and early Jewish Christianity. "James the Just and Christian Origins" is the first of several planned volumes to be published.
