Product Description

The Exegetical Guide to the New Testament closes the gap between the Greek text and the available lexical and grammatical tools, providing all the necessary information for greater understanding of the text. The series makes interpreting any given New Testament book easier, especially for those who are hard pressed for time but want to preach or teach with accuracy and authority.

Each volume begins with a brief introduction to a particular New Testament book, a basic outline, and a list of recommended commentaries. The body is devoted to paragraph-by-paragraph exegesis of the Greek text and includes homiletical helps and suggestions for further study. A comprehensive exegetical outline of the New Testament book completes each volume in this series.

Publisher's Description

The Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament: James is the second book in a projected series of twenty volumes that seeks to bring together classroom, study, and pulpit by providing the student or pastor with information that is helpful to understand and expound the Greek text of the New Testament. Author Chris Vlachos aims to close the gap between grammatical analysis and exegesis, leading readers into an in-depth understanding of the New Testament Greek text by guiding them through an exegetical process that flows into sermon construction.
Each volume provides the following for the biblical book or books on which it is written:
  • Brief introduction on authorship, date, occasion, and purpose
  • List of recommended commentaries
  • Extensive exegetical notes
  • Comprehensive exegetical outline

Author Bio

Chris Vlachos is Ph.D. program administrator and adjunct assistant professor of New Testament at Wheaton College. He served twenty-two years as an instructor and professor of Greek and New Testament at Salt Lake Theological Seminary. Vlachos is also the author of The Law and the Knowledge of Good and Evil: The Edenic Background of the Catalytic Operation of the Law in Paul (Wipf & Stock) and (with Marvin R. Wilson) A Workbook for New Testament Greek: Grammar and Exegesis in First John (Hendrickson).

Endorsements

Judicious and clear...if you need a linguistic tune-up, this study by Chris Vlachos is exactly what the doctor ordered.
-Darrell Bock,
Dallas Theological Seminary

Vlachos has accomplished a remarkable feat: surveying and excerpting the best introductory, grammatical and exegetical positions of modern commentators on James, evaluating them judiciously, creating detailed exegetical and briefer homiletical outlines, and inserting comprehensive bibliographies for every section and topic raised by the letter en route.
-Craig L. Blomberg

This volume compactly collects information that students of the letter of James would otherwise have to search for in dozens of other volumes.
-Douglas J. Moo
Wheaton College

Vlachos sifts carefully and wisely through the grammar in the epistle. Students and scholars will both profit from his work.
-Thomas Schreiner
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

If you want to know what scholars make of James, buy their commentaries. If you want to be equipped to learn what you should make of James based on the Greek text, buy this book.
-Robert Yarbrough
Covenant Theological Seminary

    Chris A. Vlachos is the Ph.D. program administrator and adjunct assistant professor of New Testament at Wheaton College. Prior to joining the staff and teaching at Wheaton College in 2007, Vlachos served in Utah for thirty years, twenty-two years of which as an instructor and professor of Greek and New Testament at Salt Lake Theological Seminary. Vlachos earned an M.A. in New Testament from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, and a Ph.D. in Biblical Theology of the New Testament from Wheaton College. Vlachos is the author (with Marvin R. Wilson) of A Workbook for New Testament Greek: Grammar and Exegesis in First John (Baker Academic, 2010) and The Law and the Knowledge of Good and Evil: The Edenic Background of the Catalytic Operation of the Law in Paul (Wipf & Stock, 2009). Most recently, Vlachos has authored a welcomed commentary in the EGGNT series, Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament: James (B&H Academic, 2013).

    The Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament series seeks to function as a bridge to narrow the gap between the text of the Greek New Testament (UBS4) and the available lexical and grammatical resources being utilized by pastors and teachers today. The book begins with a brief introduction, discussing issues of authorship, date, occasion and purpose. If you are looking for extensive introductory material on the epistle you will need to look elsewhere, but Vlachos will provide you with a good survey of the need-to-know introductory information. As the commentary opens the reader is met by diagramed Greek text that functions as the roadmap for the commentary that follows. This is helpful for understanding the flow of the epistle and the overall thought of James as his pen hit the page. The commentary is discussed at the clausal level, as Vlachos explains and surveys the grammatical and exegetical discussion amongst biblical scholarship. Overall, I think Vlachos was objective in his evaluation, presenting the evidence in a responsible way in which cultivates contemplation on the part of the reader. Each unit in the commentary closes with a For Further Study section that includes a topically organized bibliography, as well as a Homiletical Suggestions segment which provides the reader with a number of text-derived preaching and teaching proposals.

    The highlights of this commentary are numerous. First, Vlachos is clear, concise, and careful in his treatment of the text. If you are looking for a commentary that delivers sprinkles and frosting to decorate the cake, then you will want to look elsewhere. Vlachos is going to give you the cake alone. But the cake that Vlachos delivers is going to be some of the best cake you have ever tasted. It will be refreshing, enjoyable, and bursting with flavor. In other words, at under 200 pages, Vlachos will give you what you to know rather than what you may want to know. Second, as someone who seeks to engage in conversation with Mormons often, and given Vlachos prior position in Salt Lake City, I found his interaction on James 2:14-26 incredibly insightful. This is also testimony to the text-centered objectivity of Vlachos approach as he seeks to provide you with what the text says (and could say) without diverting into theological name-calling. Lastly, I found the grammatical index at the back of the book to extremely helpful for consulting the grammatical ideas flow across the letter. Not to mention, I seem to remember grammatical phraseology well, and thus can find the section I need quickly.

    It is certainly no easy task to follow up the inaugural volume of what has come to be recognized as one of the best exegetically oriented series on the Greek New Testament. But if that wasnt enough pressure on Vlachos, the introductory volume was written by one of the worlds foremost respected biblical exegetes Murray J. Harris. Still, despite these mental challenges that inevitably entered into his mind, Vlachos has produced a clear and concise compilation of some of the best work on the letter of James, and did so while walking the reader through the grammatical and exegetical forest of one of the most important New Testament writings. If you are a pastor, teacher, student, or trained laymen, Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament: James is a resource you will not want to see missing from your bookshelf. It follows closely in the footsteps of Harris work and has become the first book off my shelf when studying the letter of James.

    I received a review copy of this book in exchange for and honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255: Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

    It is amazing how small and compact commentaries can become when the fluff is removed. This is a refreshing look at James and Vlachos gets right to the heart of the matter with no time spent on trivial comparisons.

    Highly recommend this guide if you are already fimiliar with the background setting of James.
