The Practical Christian (Chrétien dans un monde actuel)
The Epistle of James
Being a Christian is a beautiful thing - at least that's the theory of words! It must be recognized, however, that for many who recognize themselves as Christians, the practice of the faith in a far from ideal world presents many questions, many struggles and many defeats.
Now, says James, the brother of the Lord Jesus, the Christian life is a beautiful thing. Rather than getting bogged down in unusable Monday morning platitudes in the workplace, he faces life's issues squarely, and he does so armed with a strong theology of Christ and practical to the point of being disturbing.
By means of several very concrete "case studies", Jacques shows how to transform the cruel hustle and bustle of a present world by putting into exercise the divine energy available in Christ by means of the Spirit and of the Word of God. Pages without compromise but full of dynamic force to enable the reader to walk in the footsteps of Christ every day.
