Faith That Works: Reflections on the Book of James
I don't know about you but I'm always looking for something to use as a guide for my daily "Quiet Time". Most of the material out there is either too technical or too syrupy.
When I look for stuff to read for this daily time of prayer and meditation, I'm generally not looking for something I'll need to pull out a dictionary to understand. Nor am I looking for something that requires that I keep tissues handy.
I'm looking for a quick read that offers some insight on a short snippet of scripture from a perspective that might be different from mine or at least not something I'd think of myself. Oh yeah, it would be nice if it left me with a smile on my face most mornings. With these parameters, my search has generally been fruitless. So, being the industrious "type A" person that I am, I wrote one myself.
I don't promise that this little walk through the book of James will leave you breathless from its theological significance. It will not make you misty eyed and drive you to hug everyone you meet that day. What I do hope is that it makes you think about the wisdom of James and do it with a smile on your face.
