James, like First and Second Peter, is a practical and somewhat neglected book. Occasionally someone says, “Why do we seldom hear preaching from the Epistle of James?” Perhaps the book is not too well understood by some and too practical for others. A few have said, “I think of it more as a Jewish epistle; not as much for the church.” But, neglecting it means suffering spiritual loss. In the development of this material, a serious attempt has been made toward practical simplicity. No effort was made to bury the reader in technical theological terms and philosophies. Even appeal to Greek words and their meaning, though important to understanding of the Biblical text, is done in simplicity. The lessons are interspersed with thoughts, analogies, and illustrations in the hope of giving luster to content.
