I have not heard of this author prior but I will say that I really hope he will continue to expound on the Bible and create more studies like this one. He makes it easy to read and quite interesting. I know much research had gone into this work. In my opinion, and I come from previously teaching the Bible, this resource is one of the finest on the book of James. Joel Dison is gifted in his clarity and is able to make this understandable at all adult levels. I have gained new insights on joy, prayer, wealth, and understanding God's will. His format is ideal as it begins with the Bible verses in italics and then, in addition to providing much thorough understanding, he also draws upon other parts of the Bible for a good solid comprehensive teaching that can be applied to our everyday lives. I will look for future works from him as I know he provides excellence. He wears many hats as a project manager, teacher, and ordained minister, and much to his credit, has a B.S. In Electrical Engineering, a Masters of Divinity, and is currently an Associate Pastor.
Faith Beyond Belief is an excellent read. The author's decision to use The Book of James as the foundation for taking us through a better understanding of Faith is wonderful. As Christians, we all struggle with faith on some level or the other, but Joel's teaching style, the injection of other scriptures in the text, and his knowledge of the material on faith have given me a much clearer understanding as to why I (we) need to be joyful when trials and difficulties are present in my (our) life (lives). Joel's analogy of the Testing of our Faith to the Testing of our knowledge, in the class room, was so tasteful! I do believe that Joel is a servant of The Lord and God is using him to educate us on the steps, guidelines, and hard work needed to complete the good work He, God, calls us all to do. This book is a great Quiet Time material, and is helpful as a referral. Thanks Joel and am looking forward to your next book!
A great exposition of the book of James. Joel brings out the practical meanings and applications of the book of James. Joel takes his time in providing clear research with an obvious desire to teach his audience the biblical truth of faith found in the book of James. Definitely a resource to keep handy for bible studies as sell as a reminder of your real faith in God.
