It’s a pleasure to announce the launch of Restoring Devotion: Wisdom from the Book of James. We’ve long wanted to produce an introduction to the epistle, and our own Jason Ehmann has written one that youth leaders can teach over a single quarter. This 13-lesson church curriculum can encourage your students to explore the riches of practical theology—the piety that grows only through patience, study, and the work of God’s Spirit.
