A Reformed Perspective on the Book of James
James is one of the most confusing and possibly one of the most controversial books of the Bible; how can this legalistic instruction about our behavior and actions fit in a New Testament professing grace and mercy? In fact, there are some Christians that love this book and others that would prefer it be thrown out of the biblical canon. This Groundwork series studies the book of James in the context of the New Testament and discusses how James' instruction, though blunt and seemingly moralistic, can benefit the faith life of all believers who by God's grace have already come to believe in Jesus Christ.
