Series: Paideia Commentaries on the New Testament
This commentary, like each in the projected eighteen-volume series, proceeds by sense units rather than word-by-word or verse-by-verse. Paideia commentaries explore how New Testament texts form Christian readers by
• attending to the ancient narrative and rhetorical strategies the text employs
• showing how the text shapes theological convictions and moral habits
• commenting on the final, canonical form of each New Testament book
• focusing on the cultural, literary, and theological settings of the text
• making judicious use of maps, photos, and sidebars in a reader-friendly format
Students, pastors, and other readers will appreciate the historical, literary, and theological insight that John Painter and David deSilva offer in interpreting James and Jude.
-Craig A, Evans,
Acadia Divinity College
I can think of no one more qualified than John Painter and David deSilva to write on James and Jude respectively. They have produced an admirable work, both in its scholarly integrity and in its clarity. They have adhered to the goal of the Paideia series in not writing a detailed exegetical commentary but rather attending to the cultural, literary, and theological settings of the final form of the text and bringing out the rhetorical strategies employed. This increases rather than limits the value of the work, allowing for a focus and clarity that might not otherwise be possible. I recommend this work; not future work on these two letters will be complete without using it.
Houston Baptist University
Painter and deSilva are to be congratulated for taking tgheir readers and the biblical text seriously. They do not dumb down their discussions, but neither do they make brute historical, linguistic, and sociological facts the centerpiece of what they say. In these pages, thoughtful and practical reflection always follows a close analysis of the Greek text. The authors teach that understanding is not an end in itself; they insist that a ribust faith is alien in any culture and that it is lived.
