Did you know?
Tradition ascribes great piety to James, whose nickname was "camel-knees," because of the calluses on his knees caused from spending so much time in prayer. James's commitment to the practical expression of a true faith in Christ is clearly seen in the way of life taught in the book that carries his name.
