About the Book
This Orthodox Christian commentary is derived from a series of sermons given by His Grace Bishop Youssef of the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of the Southern United States, where His Grace has been serving in this capacity since the early 90s.
(EPISTLE OF ST. JAMES) PRACTICAL ADVICE FOR CHRISTIAN LIVING: St. James wrote his epistle about very practical aspects of Christian life. In it, you find very clear instructions, with nearly half of the verses providing direct and practical instructions regarding the meaning of “true religion” enduring trials, being a doer of the word and not only a hearer, displaying wisdom, founding your faith in humility, and the blessings of patience, prayer, and love.
(FIRST EPISTLE OF ST. PETER) CONDUCT BEFITTING THE PEOPLE OF GOD: St. Peter writes to Christians who were experiencing persecution, seeking to encourage them to remain steadfast. He reminds them of the privileges Christians claim in Christ, and instructs them likewise about the duties of Christians, as the elect of God, as His special people.
(SECOND EPISTLE OF ST. PETER) LIVE A GODLY LIFE: As St. Peter’s martyrdom was nearing, he tells the flock to beware of false teachers, and to grow in their relationship with God.
