Martin Luther is well-known for his opposition to the Book of James; most famously, he called it an “epistle of straw” compared to the Pauline epistles. But he also called it “a good book, because it sets up no doctrine of men,” so his opinions were not as brash as some might say (AE 35:362, 395-97).
In any case, the Book of James is one of action—how we are to live out our repentance, avoid a lazy faith, and seek to do what is right.
