Godliness from Head to Toe

An Introduction to the Book of James

£9.99

One of the biggest questions facing Christians today is, ‘How can I live wisely?’. Given all that we say about the Christian faith, is it possible to live an authentic, credible Christian life that demonstrates faith that works? Covering a wide range of practical challenges - whether trial and temptation, or poverty and riches, or our use of words, or our patience in suffering, or our struggle with the world, the flesh and the devil - James helps us become wholehearted disciples of Jesus Christ.

This book is ideal for individual or group use and includes questions, discussion points, ideas for action and further study.

Endorsements

Rather than exhorting us to practice what we preach, Jonathan Lamb challenges us to think of how thin our message would be if we preached what we practice. He challenges us to face a simple question: What’s the point of believing something unless it works out in our behaviour and relationships?

This study guide to James is clear, relevant and practical – all the qualities I associate with the expositional gifts of Jonathan Lamb. When the world turns its back on institutional Christianity, often the most powerful witness left standing is Christians in community demonstrating a faith that behaves. The solid achievement of this book is that it addresses with a memorable outline what godliness looks like, in actions as well as words.

Faithfulness, clarity and relevance. As Jonathan Lamb notes, these are the criteria and hallmarks of effective biblical preaching that Langham Preaching seeks to inculcate. So what score can we give this book on each point? On faithfulness and clarity – top marks. And relevance? Well, there are ample resources for that purpose: multiple short and apt illustrations and abundant questions for personal or group reflection, response and application. Everything you need, in fact, to prove the real-life relevance of God’s word. You will most definitely not be disappointed.

Godliness from Head to Toe by Jonathan Lamb bring alive God’s Word in a clear, faithful and relevant manner. It challenges us to live consistent, authentic Christian lives in a morally bewildered and spiritually confused world, with God’s purpose and for his glory. I highly recommend it to you

These sermons once blessed a live audience and have since continued to bless many more people through the printed page, along with the additional questions and application. May your soul be enriched as you find the big questions of life answered from Scripture in studying these passages yourself!
