James tells it like it is with no holds barred. He doesn't seem concerned that he'll offend someone. He just says it. I've found that the Letter of James is a great place in which to mine and refine practical Christian living. General Does it matter who wrote the Letter of James. For believers, it is a part of the New Testament canon and from this derives its importance.

At one point in his career, Martin Luther famously stated, “St. James’s epistle is really an epistle of straw, compared to these others, for it has nothing of the nature of the gospel about it” (German New Testament, “Preface,” ed.).Luther removed this statement from later editions and even had good   While the book of James was not written to teach the deity of Christ, James bases some of his points on the truth that Jesus is the one, true God of Israel in the Old Testament.
