The Epistle of James displays a striking familiarity with Jesus' mind and a profound grasp of Jesus' teachings. Even James's style, beautifully concise and poetic, is modeled after Jesus' sayings. This should come as no surprise. James was the slightly younger brother of Jesus. For years they were companions in play and work and every other realm of life. James addresses a question of critical importance in our day, when many even in conservative churches are drowning in self-satisfied pseudoreligion. The question is, what is true godliness. To provide an answer, James reconsiders the virtues emphasized in Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. He makes godliness concrete by warning us against the many ways our lives might fail to shine with these virtues.

About the Author:

Ed Rickard (full name: Stanley Edgar Rickard, Jr.) received a B.S. with highest honors from Wheaton College in 1963, then a Ph.D. from Northwestern University in 1967. His undergraduate major was chemistry, and his graduate field was social psychology with emphasis on statistics and research methodology. His dissertation and two subsequent publications dealt with the causal analysis of correlations. He began his career teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the field of his doctorate. Later he taught Bible courses at a Christian college. His subjects included the Book of Daniel, Christian evidences, and graduate apologetics. More recently, he has served as principal of a Christian academy. For a leading publisher of Christian school curricula, he wrote a high school physics text that has been widely used. His website, http://www.themoorings.org, has been a source of Bible studies since the early days of the web. His wife and high school sweetheart, Julie, received an M.A. in French from Northwestern University and for many years taught high school French in video classes available to Christian schools and homeschools. In all her husband’s endeavors, she has been an indispensable adviser and helper. Ed has two sons and seven grandchildren. His older son is a pastor and his younger son is a minister of music. He counts all his family as a great blessing from God.
