One of the hardest lessons to learn is to tame the tongue which can do such untold damage in a church community.
James was regarded by Paul as a ‘Pillar of the Church’ and certainly he became very prominent in the church of the time. James comments on Trials and temptations, favoritism, faith and works are classics.
With chapters on submitting to God in the matter of the taming of the tongue and the display of godly wisdom are just as relevant in the church today. Those of the church members who are wealthy also should pay heed to James comments.
Matthew A. Knight has written this book with the commentaries on each chapter in the hope that all who read it might learn and having learned might apply it to their own situation in the church they find themselves in. Especially, James’ comments are helpful for the leadership of the church.
