That truth from James is so needed in the church today. Like the Christians of the diaspora he was concerned about, we 21st century believers need to be reminded, and reminded again, that "as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also." (James 2:26)
This book contains 16 studies from James, all building on James' central premise that true faith is a working faith. Faith works!
Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. (James 2:17)
