The epistle of James opens with a command to count it all joy when we face life’s trials. But how can we speak of joy when difficulties bring so much sadness? In Reservoirs of Strength, Gerald M. Bilkes surveys James’s letter and directs us to eight quiet streams that can strengthen us when things get hard: the truth of God, the lordship of Christ, the friendship of God, the wisdom of God, the grace of God, the will of God, the justice of God, and the ear of God. If the weight of the world has worn you down, come study the book of James and find an inspired map to reservoirs of strength in testing times.

Equipped with questions for individual or group reflection at the end of each chapter, this volume makes an ideal Bible study tool.
