Written to scattered believers facing a variety of troubles, the Epistle of James takes as its focus a universally relevant question: How are God’s people to live in God’s world? This side of heaven, trials and tribulations crowd into our lives, confronting us with failure and tears, doubts and disappointments, cries and groanings. In response, James offers us practical help, with an eye toward not becoming Christians so much as behaving as those who have been redeemed “by the word of truth.”

In volume three of this series, Alistair Begg helps us see just how far we fall short of God’s perfect standard. God’s law reveals that we are desperately proud, prone to controversy and slander, and inclined to mismanage our time and money. This study reminds us of our need for a Savior and points us to the cross, where we find complete forgiveness and peace. Such gifts compel us to resist sin as God graciously draws us to Himself.
