Smart Towns: The Genius of James
Presenter: Dr. Greg Stevenson
The New Testament letter of James has, at times throughout Christian history, received harsh criticism from scholars. Among the accusations are that James lacks a coherent structure and unifying theme, that it presents a theology of works that is deficient in comparison with Paul’s more robust theology of faith, and that it fails to present the reader with Jesus. In this presentation, Dr. Stevenson addresses these criticisms by arguing that the letter of James is a masterful work that diagnoses a disease of the human condition that is just as vital for faith in the twenty-first century as it was in the first century.
