RON BONTRAGER is a 1981 graduate of the Sunset
School of Preaching. He also has a Master’s Degree
from Harding Graduate School. He preached for
churches in Gail, TX and Alamogordo, NM before
going as a missionary to Salvador, Brazil (1984-88). After his
return he preached in Searcy, AR (1988-97). He returned to Sunset
in 1997 as instructor and dean of the School of Preaching
Ministries.

FAITH is at the heart of the book of James, and the living out
of that faith permeates all that the writer teaches. Beginning with
the trials and temptations that all believers face, James connects
believing and doing. This is illustrated best by two examples he
gives. In the first, hearing God’s Word is compared to looking into
a mirror. If the hearer of the Word does not do what he hears, there
is no blessing. The second example related dealt with seeing the
need of others, and saying, “be warmed and filled,” while doing
nothing to actually relieve their distress. Again, that
kind of faith is empty. We welcome you to this study
of this great book in a small package!
