The Book of James

The (English) Women's Bible Study group has recently completed Beth Moore's study on the book of James, entitled "Mercy Triumphs." Beth's video sessions were at once enlightening, entertaining and encouraging.  Our intensive homework assignments filled us with in-depth details and insights into who James was: Aside from being a brother of our Lord Jesus, through his writing (and Beth's research) we learned much about James' life, and what kind of person he was.

This study had a powerful, yet individual, impact on each of us.  Personally, it has changed me.  James' verses, in only five chapters, truly sum up all the teachings of Jesus in one neat package that we can carry with us…it reminds us to strive at all costs to be what He wants us to be; it defines the Christian faith, life, and future.

Beth's final challenge to us was to memorize the entire book.  I am trying to do that!
