Do you consume God's blessings, or do you share them? Most Christians are consumers. We are obsessed with knowing the right theology and following the right set of rules in hopes that God will bless us. Yet, no matter how much God blesses us, we are still looking for more. James says our faith is dead. But there is another type of Christian, one who craves being put to work as the servant of God to share God's blessings with others. Their faith spurs them on to become the hands and feet of Christ. James says their faith is alive. James in the Suburbs is far more than your ordinary Bible study guide. It is also a parable--an energizing story of the lives of six men and women--that wraps itself around the Epistle of James, making its teachings immediately applicable to modern life. You will walk away with not only a thorough understanding of the epistle, but also the unforgettable story of people just like you, whose lives the Holy Spirit turned upside down. This book can be read casually by an individual or studied within a group. The final chapter provides everything readers need for a guided twelve-week study. ""In the same way Clarence Jordan made the Bible relevant in the Cotton Patch of Southwest Georgia, April Love-Fordham brings the disruptive letter of James to our American suburbs whose inhabitants are anxiously in need of some true undefiled old-time religion. We, the non-poor, hunger for intervention and April's parable about how James could and should be read and lived is the kind of balm for the sin-sick soul that will challenge us to redirect our lives to find harmony with Jesus's teachings."" --Kirk Lyman-Barner, Director of US Field Operations, Fuller Center for Housing, Americus, GA ""A must-read for every suburban Christian, James in the Suburbs is packed with memorable characters and sound Christian wisdom from a pastor who sees into the soul of the suburbs."" --Tom Kennar, Team Rector, North End Team Ministry, Portsmouth, UK ""James in the Suburbs by April Love-Fordham may be the most engaging biblical commentary I've ever read. Cleverly setting her exegesis in the context of a fictional Bible study group of three men and three women, Love-Fordham shows us through narrative how the teaching of the book of James concretely impacts the lives of people of faith. This is a must-read for every Christian leader."" --Kenneth Swanson, Rector, St. David's Episcopal Church, Roswell, GA April Love-Fordham holds a BEE and MSEE from Georgia Institute of Technology. Having worked her way to the executive suite, she retired from the corporate world in her early forties to earn an MDiv from Columbia Theological Seminary, which recently named her a 2014 Guthrie Scholar. She also received a DMin from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary while pastoring two churches. She lives with her husband and their Great Dane in the suburbs of Atlanta.
