30 days with the epistle of James
What words did the head of the Church of Jerusalem, in the 1st century, address to persecuted Christians? His message will perhaps surprise us: faith works. Faith, if it is authentic, inevitably transforms our words, our relationship to suffering, our compassion for the poor, our view of ourselves, our way of praying, our priorities, etc. In five chapters, James, in a simple and direct style, exhorts Christians to actively live their faith, aware that God's grace and the final goal make it possible to get through the test.
