Book Review: The James Code
The James Code by O. S. Hawkins is a devotional gem. He provides 52 Scripture Principles for Putting Your Faith Into Action, which can be read as a weekly devotional. At the end of each section is a Just Do It application or challenge to put the principles learned into action.
The Book Of James is becoming one of my favorite books of the Bible and I found this book to be very valuable in my study of these practical passages. O.S. Hawkins points out that “in these 108 verses is a sort of code – a James Code- that outlines how we can put our faith into action in the normal traffic patterns of everyday life.” He focuses on object lessons, commentary and practical steps that make the wisdom of the book of James very relevant to a Christian’s walk today. The author states the goal of this book is to move the message of James ” from your heart to your hands, to move you from merely hearing God’s commands to actually doing them.” As a Christian desiring to put my faith in to action that makes a difference in the world around me, I found this book to be a wonderfully inspiring resource. The book is also beautifully designed, with a textured imitation leather cover that makes it an attractive book to display or give as a gift.
Rating: 5/5 stars.
