Product Details

How often each of us is tempted to doubt! Instead of believing God, we attempt to take it all on ourselves - to survive our trials, overcome our temptations and build our own successful lives.

Studies in James 1, more so than any other New Testament book, focuses on and defines how we can develop the mind of Christ in an intensely personal way. It provides us with the opportunity to achieve the unerring faith of Christ. James 1 is an inspirational guide to renewing your mind and discovering God's will.

Here are some of the areas in which you'll gain insight:

  • Rejoicing in trials and temptations
  • Perseverance and steadfastness
  • What wisdom is and how to recognize it
  • Benefits, dangers, and responsibilities of wealth
  • Secrets of successful living
  • Envy, deception, falsehood and unwholesome talk
  • The importance of obedience
  • What true religion is

Believing God When You Are Tempted to Doubt is another book in the Biblical Renewal Series by Gene Getz, included with his Measure Of books and Bible biography series.

About the Author

Dr. Gene A. Getz received his diploma (1952), Moody Bible Institute; B.A. (1954), Rocky Mountain College; M.A. (1958), Wheaton College; Ph.D. (1968), New York University; and did his graduate study at Northern Illinois University. He became involved in church planting and renewal at a very practical level while teaching at Dallas Theological Seminary. After exploring the subject for several years with his students, he wrote Sharpening the Focus of the Church. Prodded on by several families in Dallas who became interested in starting a new church, Gene launched Fellowship Bible Church in November of 1972. Committed to biblical absolutes, the church was also built on the concept of “freedom in form.” Growth was immediate. Since that time, 12 Fellowship churches have been started in the Dallas metroplex and numerous churches throughout the United States can trace their roots back to what has happened in Dallas.

Gene has personally pastored three of these churches. Presently, he serves as Pastor Emeritus at Fellowship Bible Church North, located in Plano, Texas, one of the fastest growing areas in the Dallas metroplex. Though Gene still teaches part time at Dallas Theological Seminary, his primary focus involves directing the Center for Church Renewal and his pastoral responsibility at Fellowship Bible Church North. The CCR is a rapidly growing organization designed to minister to pastors, missionaries and other church leaders.

Gene's ministry career has involved a variety of experiences including Christian education and music ministries, college and seminary teaching. He has also authored over 60 books and many of these book titles have been printed and distributed in over 30 different languages. Most of his books have grown out of his experience as a pastor. Some of his best selling titles are the series Measure and the One Another books. His Men of Character series are impacting the current men's movement. Recently, he has launched a 15-minute weekday program called "Renewal" which is aired on the Moody Radio Network. The format consists of brief messages, interviews, discussions.
