Let's Study James Book coverWomen, join the New Covenant Women's Ministry ladies as we gather together at Michelle Shepherd's home in Richmond Hill for a study to go over Dr. Sinclair B. Ferguson's book, Let's Study James, published by Banner of Truth. We'll begin this study on Wednesday, Sep. 7th at 6:30 pm, and continue each 1st & 3rd Wednesday through the 14 chapters. Michelle Shepherd and Lisa Beth Smith lead this study. Childcare is available. For questions about this study, contact Michelle at newcovpreswomen@gmail.com.

Throughout the centuries, the Letter of James has proved to be an excellent refresher course in what it means to live the Christian life. It is only a few pages long. It can be read out loud in twenty minutes. It is very direct and extremely practical. Several themes run through the Letter of James and make clear what his burden is. He writes about suffering and joy, riches and poverty, faith and works, the tongue and speech, and about wisdom and folly. In a word, he writes about the heart and life of the Christian believer. James’s bête noire is false and hollow piety; pious platitudes are anathema to him. Faith that does not issue in good works, a holy life, concern for the needy, and a disciplined use of the tongue, is for James no faith at all.

Author: Dr. Sinclair B. Ferguson is a Ligonier teaching fellow and distinguished visiting professor of systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary. He previously served as the senior minister of the First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, S.C., and he has written more than two dozen books.
