James: Pearls for Wise Living

Eleven Week Bible study by Jeff Cavins & Sarah Christmyer

Mondays 7 - 9 p.m. beginnig January 8


Thursdays 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. beginning January 11

James is one of the most practical books of the Bible. Like the book of Proverbs, it is a book of wisdom, a collection of teachings on issues faced by ordinary Christians in everyday life. These teachings speak loudly to all those who feel torn between the competing demands of this world and their faith. This study offers "pearls for wise living" by applying the wisdom of James to the present day. For anyone who has struggled to live a truly Christian life, James offers a wealth of practical solutions for handling and even sanctifying everyday circumstances.



Weekly Study Sequence:

Home preparation - Read the Bible and answer the homework questions in the Study Set, which are not a test but a way to learn from within the heart of the Church.  Not everyone will find every answer.

Small group discussion - Small group discussion begins each class session. Participants share what they have learned and glean from others’ insights to get a fuller understanding of the passages they have read.

Review of Responses - Responses are provided to the Study Set questions as an aid to the group’s discussion.

DVD Lecture - The DVD lecture presentation follows the homework and group discussion for the fullness of what can be learned.

Student workbooks are $30 and required.
