Recently, I was invited to join the Launch Team for this book and thus, received an advanced copy. As I’m always looking for good Bible studies and regularly study at least two at a time, I was intrigued. I’ve never specifically studied the Book of James and was excited to learn more about studying all of the epistles.
This study did not disappoint!
Ellen Hopkins, author of Awaken Faith Unlocking the New Testament Letters with an In-Depth Study of the Book of James, is a writer and blogger who loves to share the Word of God in a meaningful way. Her website, Scripture Confident Living, is chock-full of Bible study tips and resources including an online course. The online course, Scripture Confident Through the Bible, teaches how to develop a habit of regular Bible reading as well as how to dig deep into scripture with growing confidence.
Ellen, the wife of a youth pastor and mom of two daughters, lives in Florida. She has a passion for teaching God’s Word.
Awaken Faith is more than a Bible Study of the Book of James. It is a manual to help you “unlock” the New Testament letters and apply their teachings to your life. Each “Step” or section has several reading selections as well as questions to assist you in understanding the meaning of the read verses and how to apply the scripture to your everyday life.
The study questions include:
- Open ended questions regarding the selected reading
- Open ended questions regarding the application of the verse(s) to your life

In addition, Ellen peppers the study with historical context and relevant related Bible verses as well as themes and keywords. Honestly, I don’t think she has missed anything in this truly in-depth study.
While you can use this study guide on your own, you are encouraged to study with other believers. Discussion and fellowship enhance your learning and allow you to learn from others’ experiences and knowledge.

I’m so excited for the online study to reinforce the incredible teaching I’m finding as I make my way through the book independently. I do hope you will join me.
