Book Description

The Knowing the Bible series is a new resource designed to help Bible readers better understand and apply God’s Word. Each 12-week study leads participants through one book of the Bible and is made up of four basic components: (1) Reflection questions designed to help readers engage the text at a deeper level; (2) “Gospel Glimpses” highlighting the gospel of grace throughout the book; (3) “Whole-Bible Connections” showing how any given passage connects to the Bible’s overarching story of redemption culminating in Christ; and (4) “Theological Soundings” identifying how historic orthodox doctrines are taught or reinforced throughout Scripture. With contributions from a wide array of influential pastors and church leaders, these gospel-centered studies will help Christians see and cherish the message of God’s grace on each and every page of the Bible.

In this accessible study, pastor and author Greg Gilbert examines the message of James, exploring the book’s difficult teachings on wealth, anointing with oil, prayer, healing, and the relationship between faith and works. Through clear exposition of the biblical text and challenging application questions, Gilbert helps readers rightly understand James as a stirring exhortation to fruitfulness, ultimately written to remind Christians of the necessary connection between genuine faith and heartfelt obedience.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Basis for Another Study 15 Feb. 2014

Our bible study group (32) went through this study in preparation for an in-depth study of Dallas Willard's book "The Divine Conspiracy". It worked perfectly. We all discovered holes in our biblical understanding as a result.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing and inconsistent question quality 17 July 2014
By JJB - Published on
I had great hopes for this study since it had such good endorsements. I was hoping to use this for a group Bible study - but as I've gone through the study itself, I've had a variety of concerns and will not use it. The concerns are as follows:

1) Some questions often are leading or have the answer included in the question. e.g., p. 28, "If James is speaking to "beloved brothers" beginning in 1:19, and if doing is not what makes a person a Christian, what then is it that makes a person a Christian? (Hint: look back at 1:18).

2) and at the same time, some questions are very expansive -- too much so. e.g.,p. 31, "Find one or two OT passages that teach these same things [true & practical religion] and then look through James and find where he addresses each of these ideas again".

Questions in the #1 category make me think this book is for those who are not well versed in the Bible - but if that is the case, I don't think spoon-feeding will help them know how to read the Bible for themselves. But at the same time, there are questions that would be very involved -- like in #2 -- draw on your OT knowledge and then see how it fits into the entire book of James.

This could be a good resource for someone writing their own study and it does contain good material. But I would not use it in a group study.

This seems to be a good tool to use to go along with our Small Group Bible Study and I hope that it will bless those who are in our group.
