Listen to the Rev Dr Keith Garner’s sermon from this week’s Praise, Prayer & Preaching service.
By Rev Dr Keith Garner
This week’s sermon is the beginning of a series from the book of James. Over four Sundays we will take a look at this significant epistle. The sixteenth century reformer, Martin Luther, unhelpfully chose to describe James as “a right epistle of straw”, questioning whether it was worthy of a place alongside the writings of St Paul, such as Romans. In contrast to this, Rev Dr Keith Garner shares the book of James as a portrait of Christian living that highlights the trials, temptation and bruising that make up the way of discipleship and our need to remain resilient against these challenges.
