This Bible study focuses on the books of James and 1 and 2 Peter--3 letters that focus on putting faith into action. The letter of James was written to encourage Christians to remember that their behavior and character influences other's acceptance of Christ. He urges Christians to recognize that true faith also requires real action. The letters of Peter bring James' message into the life of the church, showing Christians how to handle persecution from the outside and distraction and heresy from within. This intriguing study helps readers evaluate their own Christian example and put into practice the wisdom offered from these important letters of faith and encouragement. This Bible study comes in workbook form and provides exercises for students, questions for discussion, memory verses, and practical applications.The Wisdom of the Word Bible Study books are great resources for Sunday School classes, small-groups, independent Bible studies, or anyone interested in deepening his/her understanding of the Bible and the amazing truth found in the Christian faith.Jeannie McCullough founded Wisdom of the Word in 1986 when she was a pastor's wife in Bethany, Oklahoma.
