Product Description

Appealing to the general reader of the Bible, the TNTC series provides its audience with an exegetical, but non-technical commentary. Readers are not expected to know Greek or Hebrew, only bring the willingness to understand some of the more important issues in New Testament scholarship and learn how they affect our reading and interpretation of the text. For this reason, IVP Academic is reworking this very successful series in its entirety and hopes to bring the series, and its readers, up to date on translations and the latest developments in Biblical Studies.Douglas J. Moo, author of commentaries on several New Testament books (including Romans, Colossians, Philemon, 2 Peter, Jude, and 3 commentaries on James), brings his extensive study and acumen to the TNTC series. Moo focuses on James as a book that provides a call to action; to live the life that should accompany Christian faith at all times. Providing a rich introduction to the background and circumstances of the letter, Moo also discusses the book's major theological themes, such as suffering, and the importance of good works. The commentary proceeds section by section and includes a very helpful "Additional Notes" section on some of James' more difficult and controversial texts (1.21; 2.14; 2.21; 5.14-16). For those who seek to build a solid foundation for continuing education in Scripture, this series is indispensable.

Publisher's Description

"The Bible is being translated, commented on, read, studied, preached and analyzed as never before. But it is questionable whether it is being obeyed to a comparable degree," says Douglas Moo in the preface to his commentary on James. "All this suggests that the message of James is one that we all need to hear--and obey. No profound theologian, James' genius lied in his profound moral earnestness; in his powerfully simple call for repentance, for action, for a consistent Christian lifestyle. His words need to thrust through our theological debates, our personal preconceptions, our spiritual malaise and set us back on the road to a biblical, invigorating, transforming Christianity." The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, these twenty volumes offer clear, reliable, and relevant explanations of every book in the New Testament. These Tyndale volumes are designed to help readers understand what the Bible actually says and what it means. The introduction to each volume gives a concise but thorough description of the authorship, date, and historical background of the biblical book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretation. The aim throughout is to get at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.

    Douglas Moo is one of the best contemporary New Testament scholars, and his wisdom and expertise are evident in this commentary on James. His 42 page introduction gives a good overview of such issues as authorship and context, and the verse-by-verse exegesis is solid and very readable. A bargain for the price!
