JUSTIFICATION BY WORKS
How Works Vindicate True Faith
The object of the epistle of James is two-fold, to encourage the godly Christian facing "trials of many kinds" and to warn the more worldly Christians against the dangers of complacency. Scattered among the nations, James' first readers are exhorted to reconcile their faith with behavior. And although separated by the extent of time and distance, the same message still resonates today: faith without works is dead.
In Justification By Works, eminent theologian and biblical scholar R.T. Kendall examines what it means to have saving faith. Applying the epistle's practical advice to living in today's world, this book combines deep biblical exposition with practical and profound insights.
"R.T. Kendall's James leaves aside some well-worn paths and takes a major forward step in the history of church-based biblical interpretation." - Dr. Michael Eaton, Christo Fellowship of Churches, Kenya
The New Westminster Pulpit Series is based on sermons preached weekly by R.T. Kendall while he was Minister at Westminster Chapel.
