    Excellent book which we used for Sunday school. There was great interest in studying James. Wiersbe's books have wonderful content, but the chapters are manageable with minimum study each week. Of course, some chapters require several weeks for a thorough discussion. The format of the book was looking at five marks of a mature Christian: patient in testing, practices the truth, power over tongue, peacemaker (not troublemaker), and prayerful in trouble.

    Love this study!! Warren Wiersbe is a great Christian writer and teacher. He has written "Be" series on both the Old Testament (27 books) and New Testament (23 books). This book is amazing, so much to learn in the book of James. It would make a great group bible study.

    A great commentary for the book of James. This was given to me for a resource when our Bible study decided to do a study on James and at first I thought the title was odd but it ended up being a great book.

    I started this devotional with a friend who wanted to do something like this together and so someone would hold her accountable to get it done. She then flaked out and I haven't heard from her since September. :-/ So, for awhile, it sat languishing on my shelf as I waited to see if she would come back and we could finish it together; alas, that did not happen. So I started it back up again on my own. And I thoroughly enjoyed this. It was my first devotional by Warren Wiersbe and it most certainly I started this devotional with a friend who wanted to do something like this together and so someone would hold her accountable to get it done. She then flaked out and I haven't heard from her since September. :-/ So, for awhile, it sat languishing on my shelf as I waited to see if she would come back and we could finish it together; alas, that did not happen. So I started it back up again on my own. And I thoroughly enjoyed this. It was my first devotional by Warren Wiersbe and it most certainly will not be my last. His writing is concise, backed by scripture and very straight-forward. There is no ambivalence here; just straight from the heart and gut and the Bible. I had never done such an in-depth study of the Book of James and while this was enjoyable, it was also uncomfortable. The Book of James deals with the tongue and how we need to control it; to say I was convicted several times over how I often use mine is a gross understatement. I never felt he was judging me though, just encouraging me to pray about my offenses, learn from them and what the Book of James was teaching me and let God lead. And because of that [and the lack of judgment], I was able to really delve in and learn to apply what I was learning to my life. I am glad my friend suggested this, even if she did not finish it with me. I hope that wherever she is, she has finished it as well and has learned as much as I have from this study.

    I think Weirsbe has done a great job of outlining the book of James towards the goal of Christian maturity. Using James 1:4 as the theme verse for the book: "And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing." (ESV) Wiersbe outlines the five characteristics of mature Christian believers using one characteristic per chapter in the book of James. The Marks of a Mature Christian: - He is patient in testing (James 1) from external sources (:1-12) and i I think Weirsbe has done a great job of outlining the book of James towards the goal of Christian maturity.

Be they economic (:1-9), physical (:10-16), national (:17-18) or Church related (:19-20) Really helpful and easy to read commentary on James.

    James' epistle is really quite short at just five chapters. Nevertheless it's packed with practical advice on Christian living. Wiersbe, as usual, takes the Word and explains, expands and challenges. I have been given much food for thought and encouragement for action by this excellent, easy-to-read commentary.

    Good, concise, and very pastoral commentary on the book of James. Each chapter is a 'mini-sermon' with usually 3 to 4 points. Any believer can benefit from this book. If you are interested in more in depth commentary dealing through certain lexical and translation difficulties, this is not your book.

    This was a maverlous book telling the reader that after justication before God comes the process of santification. A major problem of the church was"a failure on the part of many to live what they profeesed to believe."

    A good, theologically conservative commentary on the book of James. A bit breezy, I would have liked it if he slowed down and spent a little more time in some of the really special texts of the letter.

    Always, I have enjoyed Wiersbe's studies. This one especially has been helpful as I have taught through the book of James and worked through some of the intricacies and imperatives that are there.

    This text has good cross-referencing and summaries, without forcing an opinion on the reader beyond what the Bible says. For what it claims to be, it does its job very well.

    Very good study This book is a good one to help you understand the book of James. I had my Bible along with reading this so I could look up the various scripture and that helped in understanding. This is my first “Be” series book and so I hope the others are just as good.
