We live in a day and age where it is thought of as admirable to keep your options open. We fear commitment and avoid faithfulness. In light of this, James truly is a counter-cultural and intensely practical book that calls us to wholehearted devotion to Jesus, shows us what it looks like, and confronts us where our life and actions don’t line up with what we say we believe. James shows us, over and over, what a faith that works looks like.
