Dr. George Sweeting

   From his years of experience as a pastor and evangelist, Dr. Sweeting knows that faith is important, and it must be relevant to daily life. With this knowledge the epistle of James has become particularly to him.

   As he writes in the preface, "The epistle of James stands as one of the most practical books in the New Testament . . . . James speaks to Christians where they are: in the midst of trial and tribulation, experiencing testing and tribulation, and inhabiting a strife-torn world. He gives practical solutions to everyday problems that all believers experience."

   Here Dr. Sweeting presents the message of the book of James so that all Christians will understand its message and apply it to their lives."

   The hardhitting chapters include "Turning Trials into Triumphs," "Temptation: Victim or Victor," "Faith that Works," and "Your Money: A Blessing or a Curse."
