Great Book for Young and Old Christians Sep 7, 2005
I love this book because it directs me to God's Words. It remained faithful to the Scripture and gives insight how the road will be life when you're a Christian.
Its a must have book to read, meditate on and act upon.
Another great book by Roper. Apr 12, 2001
Growing Slowly Wise is a great study of the book of James and helps to explain the apparent contradiction of Paul's writings with that of James' in regard to faith and works. As Paul would say (Romans 3:28) we are not saved by works, but by faith and faith alone; whereas, James states that a person is justified by what he does and not by faith alone. This apparent contradiction has bothered me since my first reading of James and Roper does a great job weaving the two together into a complete message on faith building. As always Roper shows the reader how the translation of the bible may cause confusion in our interpretation. From James' perspective and to quote Roper "saving faith will always manifest itself in loving deeds." Of course the book touches on many other subjects that are also included in the book of James and Roper does a great job here too. This book could easily be used for group Bible studies, although the leader would need to develop study questions for each chapter. The book contains an introduction and 19 chapters and each chapter can be read in a few minutes. I have rated the book as 5 stars, but my favorite Roper book remains In Quietness and Confidence. This new book comes in a close second. My hat is off to you David Roper you have another winner. Now, take a day off and go fishing.
