Description - Preaching James by William R. Baker

This volume of the popular Preaching Classic Texts series blends discerning exegesis with insightful sermons to inspire and equip ministers to preach from this delightfully refreshing New Testament book. The book of James challenges readers to evaluate and deal with daily struggles in their lives as well as their attitudes toward God, prayer, sin, their own words, faith, anger, repentance, unfair treatment, the Lord's return, healing, and spiritual restoration. James attempts to motivate people to grow in their faith so that they live it out in ways that rise above the behavior of others around them, particularly focusing on control of anger and speech, and to use their speech for the betterment of the community of believers. With specific attention to the historical background of James within Jewish wisdom writings and its connection to the teachings of Jesus, William Baker provides knowledgeable but nontechnical exegesis that clarifies contextual and lexical issues and helps readers to fully appreciate the message of the book of James. Thomas Ellsworth adds insightful and challenging sermons that include classic and contemporary illustrations.
