Commendations

Soundly doctrinal, eminently practical, and beautifully devotional, this just might be the most accessible yet serious commentary on James available. I don't like to admit this, but I find many biblical commentaries tedious and boring—but there's nothing dry or abstract about James For You. Whether you're planning to preach or teach James or to listen to these ancient words to redirect your own life, Sam Allberry is a wise and faithful guide.

Sam Allberry shows with his characteristic candor and empathy how God's wisdom lands in our living rooms, board rooms, and churches. The ways in which Allberry highlights the clarity, unity, and simplicity of the book of James are truly enjoyable. His illustrations will stay with me for a long time.

“A helpful book to accompany your studies”

(Review written for 'James For You')

I used this as a companion when reading James and preparing notes for children's work to go alongside the sermon series we were doing. I found it easy to use and simply put, meaning that I could adapt what I was reading and learning myself for the children.
I would recommend this as a book to read alongside James and have extended times of study. It has depth without being overly academic and impenetrable.
