Review 1 for The 24/7 Christian: Expository thoughts on the Epistle of James
Date:May 3, 2009
In The 24/7 Christian, Anthony Selvaggio (J.D., M.Div) skillfully introduces us to the epistle of James who has much to say regarding the crucial subject of the Christian life. As the brother of Jesus, James saw firsthand how to live a wise and victorious Christian life. James imparts this wisdom from his pastor's heart wanting the best for his flock, and he accomplishes this gently yet with imperative (50 commands in 108 verses). James challenges the reader to put faith in action and sets the bar high in living the Christian life through the power of Christ. "Throughout his epistle James touches upon such practical matters as dealing with trials and temptations, the need for wisdom, dealing with wealth and poverty, responding to the Word of God, avoiding partiality, evidencing our faith through deeds, controlling our speech and our passions, preventing pride, the power of prayer and the need to correct our fellow believers (21)." The 24/7 Christian is an intensely practical and powerful book which spurs the reader to action, yet gives hope and encouragement for the journey.
