The book of James is not just an amazing book in the New Testament but has themes that are very important to remember. Alabaster has done it again by capturing this book’s message into the wonderful photography that is laid out on every page. I love the overall theme of this book and can be summed up in the command we recently read in James 1:22: “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” As other translations have put it, let's be doers of the Word, not hearers only. James continues this theme throughout his entire letter and gives his audience many examples on how to put our faith into action. James uses this to emphasize that faith without action is dead. Yes, dead! It doesn’t matter if you are new to the faith or have been in it for some time now but our faith should become evident in our actions. I received a complimentary copy of this book through Alabaster’s influencer Program. Personally this book has reminded me that its one thing to believe in the Holy Scriptures but to actually put action into what we believe in give a more meaning to what we stand for. Thanks again for such a wonderful addition to my library of the beautiful Alabaster Co. Bible Collection!
I’ve been waiting for Alabaster to release the book of James since discovering the beautiful books that Alabaster creates! James is one of my favorite books, as James writes encouragement to those facing trials and tribulations; and the goodness that comes in facing them with perseverance. Alabaster did a beautiful job with this copy— I got to catch a peek of it since I received a copy of the book was complimentary through Alabaster's Influencer Program. Thanks for your hard work Alabaster team!
This book has been such a comfort for me during these trying times that we live in right now. I am grateful to have been able to receive a copy as part of the Alabaster ambassador program. I am always blown away by how the visuals fit so perfectly with the words of the scriptural passages. I have needed to get back into the book of James & I am grateful for the artistic work that Alabaster has put in to aid me in seeking and desiring to dive deeper into this amazing book of the Bible!
I feel as though sometimes reading the Bible can be overwhelming or hard to comprehend. It can be easy to lose focus or “zone out” so to speak. What I appreciate about the Alabaster books, and in particular, the book of James, is that the imagery allows your mind to rest and focus on the text itself. It can be easy to skim through the Bible quickly but the layout of the Alabaster books allow you to slowly mediate on the words and reflect. If you love the Word of God and appreciate beauty, you will love this book. The book of James is one of my favorites and I’m excited to have it in this format!

James is fiery. A call to action. Faith that is not stagnant or still, but that is passionately moving in boldness and working for the glory of God. Alabaster has done a beautiful job communicating James’ message with this imagery! The red and orange tones, the fire and vivid light, all point to the strong and straight forward message of James. Highly recommend adding this to your collection!! A copy of the book was complimentary through Alabaster's Influencer Program
