It’s one of the first “problems” many Christians encounter in beginning to seriously study the Bible. How do we reconcile the words of Paul as typified by Romans 3:28 with those of James, as found in James 2:24?
If we research the question, we can find many convoluted explanations that argue vigorously for one or the other of the two approaches – that all we need for salvation is faith, or that we must have good works to be righteous in God’s sight.
It is relatively rare to find explanations that clearly, effectively – and biblically – show that the truth lies not in either of these approaches, but in both. That is why Chris Bruno’s new book, Paul vs. James, fills an important void in making a sound biblical explanation of the apparent problem both available and accessible.
