A Bible Study on James for Women
James is a letter written to a suffering church to spur them on to live authentic lives of faith. Keri Folmar, well-known for her first book Joy! A Bible Study on Philippians for Women, now has written Faith: A Bible Study on James for Women, guiding readers in an in-depth study of the letter of James.
One of the few truly inductive Bible studies written for women, Faith will impress the truths of James upon your heart and equip you to more effectively study any book of the Bible.
With each week’s chapter divided into sections for five days of study, it can be used as a tool for personal devotions or to guide discussion among groups of any size. Studying James using this resource will cause you to delight in the Scriptures and encourage you to live more effectively for Jesus and his gospel.

“Keri Folmar encourages us to read God’s Word carefully, to understand clearly, and to apply prayerfully. This study helps us hear James’ call to true hope in Jesus Christ — a trust that works. With simple clarity, Keri guides us not only in studying James but also in learning to study the Bible.” — Kathleen Nielson, author of the Living Word Bible Studies
“It is hard to imagine a better inductive Bible study tool than this one. So many study tools wander from the biblical text, but Keri Folmar’s study on James concentrates on what James himself says. Also, the message of James for our everyday lives is constantly emphasized. I recommend this book for both individual and group study, for it will enable you to grow in your faith.” — Diane Schreiner, wife of professor, author, and pastor Tom Schreiner and mother of four grown children, who has led women’s Bible studies for over 20 years.
“This study through the Book of James encourages us to have an active faith that works itself out in love. I appreciate the way Keri consistently challenges us to apply God’s Word to our own hearts, and also to our relationships in the body of Christ. This is a great study to do on your own or in partnership with someone who is not yet a Christian, or with someone who struggles with assurance or expresses a desire to have a vibrant life of faith and service to Christ.” — Kristie Anyabwile, wife of Thabiti Anyabwile, Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church, Grand Cayman, and a Council Member for The Gospel Coalition
