James 1:1-5

An overview of James

Often referred to as 'The Letter of Applied Christianity', James has some significant lessons for us in the area of everyday Christian living. In this sermon, Steve presents an overview of the book, and offers a few insights into why James begins with the topic of trials. 

What is this 'joy' that James says should be the reader's attitude amidst trials? Why does he begin the letter in such an odd way? How is this relevant to us two-thousand years later? Journey with us into this powerful epistle, authored by the brother of Jesus.
