James is a short, snappy and challenging book, full of wisdom about how best to live as a follower of Jesus.
James 1 introduces key ideas: faith in the midst of trials, the dangers of wealth, & the importance of doing God's Word.
James 3:1-4:12 focuses on the use of the tongue and the need for wisdom.
James 2 stresses the importance of living out one's faith, since a faith not matched by action is not real faith at all.
James 4:13-5:20 presents some of the more challenging passages in this letter.
