Shut Up & Show Me! A Bold Study of James by Bruce Atkinson – out now
In the style of the author’s best-selling work, No More Law! this study on the New Testament letter of James boldly deals with such topics as the character and life of the contemporary Christian, the misconception that Paul and James disagreed on the gospel, Christians overcoming trials by aggressive faith, the nature of tests and trials, justification by works and its relationship to justification by faith, the power and misuse of the tongue, and so on. The book is provocative to holy living in Jesus Christ for today’s church.
“In his latest book Bruce Atkinson has tackled and wonderfully grasped James, one of the more difficult epistles in the New Testament. Having written an exposition of Galatians he now demonstrates clearly how Paul and James complement each other. Had Martin Luther grasped Bruce’s understanding of James it would have changed not only Luther but prevented a long history of bad exegesis. This needed book should be read by all Christians, especially those who minister and teach.”
Dr. R.T. Kendall
“The world is not waiting for another belief system to adhere to. What they are looking for however are lives that have been transformed by the power and presence of Christ – the modelling of grace in a world where that commodity is in short supply. ‘Love must look like something’ and the vital exposition in ‘Shut up and show me’ provides us with both the bench mark and the template.”
Chair of the Evangelical Alliance Council/General Superintendent of the Elim Pentecostal Churches
“In this study of James, Bruce Atkinson combines his academic understanding and the rich vein of his personal experience to urge us to demonstrate the true value of Christian faith in the face of life’s greatest difficulties. It is a call to live well in the most challenging circumstances so that the world can observe authentic Christianity.”
