Justification by Works by R.T.Kendall
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. Kendall's God is the God of the Bible--a God of infinite mercy, but also a God of justice, and here is a book that will stir us towards greater commitment and action, as we face/approach our daily lives.
'Be encouraged to want to understand this godly man who can make a contribution to the lives of all today, knowing that he was slaughtered by the men he was trying to please the most. This is the first of a two-volume commentary that will inspire us towards godliness and an increase in our understanding of faith. Through careful and detailed exposition we are encouraged to grow in the ways of wisdom, as it is Kendall's hope that our eyes will be opened and exposed to deeper truths in the word of God. Addressed to the 'twelve tribes... scattered abroad', the epistle of James provides an insight into the world of primitive and essential Christianity. Here are Christians who are challenged to reconcile belief with behaviour and strive towards action and compassion, as they serve Christ in their day-by-day living. Today we face similar struggles and problems, as R.T Kendall applies and extends the needs of these early Christians to the contemporary condition of the church.
