Item description for The 24/7 Christian: Practical Help from the Book of James by Anthony Selvaggio...
Overview In our modern age, James has suffered from both lay and scholarly neglect. When it comes to the New Testament epistles, the writings of Paul, Peter and John garner most of the attention. James and his epistles have been largely ignored and neglected throughout history. This is unfortunate, because it has much to say to us- particularly regarding the crucial subject of the Christian life. Perhaps no other letter in the New Testament so comprehensively addreses the Christian life as does the Epistle of James. It is the purpose of this book to explore the Christian life through the panoramic lens of this grand epistle.
Publishers Description Do you ever struggle? Are you sometimes tempted to throw in the towel? Do you long for Christ to return? You are not alone, and thankfully you have been left with help and certain hope as you press on in your Christian walk.
The book of James is immensely controversial to some (ask Martin Luther), yet Anthony Selvaggio expertly opens up and shows us that this part of God's inspired Word is as relevant to each of us right now as it was to the struggling Christians late in the first century.
You will find that James' letter is one of pastoral concern to the scattered Christians who suffered a great deal of persecution, and who faced many challenges every day just as we do. His intention is to be practical and encouraging, yet there is also stern warning and a plea for them to get their focus right and to live like Christians, putting their faith to work as they wait patiently for Christ's second coming.

Faith in Action: Hear the Word and Live the Word May 3, 2009
In The 24/7 Christian, Anthony Selvaggio (J.D., M.Div) skillfully introduces us to the epistle of James who has much to say regarding the crucial subject of the Christian life. As the brother of Jesus, James saw firsthand how to live a wise and victorious Christian life. James imparts this wisdom from his pastor's heart wanting the best for his flock, and he accomplishes this gently yet with imperative (50 commands in 108 verses). James challenges the reader to put faith in action and sets the bar high in living the Christian life through the power of Christ. "Throughout his epistle James touches upon such practical matters as dealing with trials and temptations, the need for wisdom, dealing with wealth and poverty, responding to the Word of God, avoiding partiality, evidencing our faith through deeds, controlling our speech and our passions, preventing pride, the power of prayer and the need to correct our fellow believers (21)." The 24/7 Christian is an intensely practical and powerful book which spurs the reader to action, yet gives hope and encouragment for the journey.
