“Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” The letter of James is vital reading whenever the believer is tempted to be content with knowledge devoid of action, to cultivate the world’s friendship rather than God’s, and to tolerate disorder and selfish ambition. As we’ll learn, James shows us that the outward display of faith will find its roots in the inward transformation that has already taken place. These studies provide a forceful and timely reminder that our creed must be seen in our conduct and our attitude must display itself in action.

James, the brother of Jesus, instructs the scattered people of God how to live in the world. Christians are to display their faith in the way they live out their day-to-day lives and in the way they face trials. Alistair Begg teaches us that trials and temptations are common to all mankind, but the response of the believer should be markedly different because the believer knows that faith is developed and matured through times of testing.
