Written to scattered believers facing a variety of troubles, the Epistle of James takes as its focus a universally relevant question: How are God’s people to live in God’s world? This side of heaven, trials and tribulations crowd into our lives, confronting us with failure and tears, doubts and disappointments, cries and groanings. In response, James offers us practical help, with an eye toward not becoming Christians so much as behaving as those who have been redeemed “by the word of truth.”

In volume two of this series, Alistair Begg helps us discover what true faith looks like in the life of a Christian. Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ produces godly wisdom, which we demonstrate by how we conduct ourselves toward God and others—including in how we face such temptations as showing favoritism or having uncontrolled speech. As God’s Spirit enables, we can learn true wisdom and find strength to serve God and each other.
