Adult Bible Study – James, an Introduction

Its teachings speak loudly to all those who feel torn between the competing demands of this world and their faith.
James: Pearls for Wise Living offers practical guidance by applying the wisdom of James to our current lives. For anyone who has struggled to live a truly Christian life, James offers a wealth of practical solutions for handling and even sanctifying everyday circumstances.

How can we show others the mercy of God? We say God is compassionate, but we ignore the poor. We say that God loves us and has mercy on us, but we hold grudges against our friends. Our actions need to reflect God's mercy authentically. This information can help you explore the different ways in which you can live out that mercy every day!
