Product Description

The epistle of James, notes leading evangelical opinion maker and NT scholar Scot McKnight, has become the "ignored leader" of the New Testament. "In fact", McKnight continues, he is sometimes said to be part of the 'junk mail' of the New Testament" (McKnight: 2010, p.9).

where is Scot McKnight coming from? In this NICNT commentary The Letter of James [NICNT] McKnight wants biblical students to read James' powerful letter on its own terms; not Paul's terms; not Luther's terms; not on our terms; James' terms. And those terms are: Ancient Judaism; Torah; the Prophets; the Land; and the centripetal city of Jerusalem; Jesus' teachings.

It is all in this "little" epistle, and with clarity, wit, theological acumen, and exegetical precision, McKnight draws these motifs out masterfully. McKnight, who lands squarely in the "new perspective" on Paul camp encourages us to see this underrated letter anew, to reconsider its themes, its call to holiness, and its call to discipleship--in relationship to faith.

Endorsements

Peter H. Davids
-St. Stephen’s University
"Scot McKnight has written a very readable, evangelical commentary on James. While covering the traditional bases and literature, he also includes a number of new readings of the data that make his work fresh and intriguing. This book will be viewed as a standard evangelical work that needs to be consulted in any future work on this letter."

Douglas S. Huffman
-Talbot School of Theology
"This commentary is scholarly, interesting, and timely — three things not often said about the same book! . . . McKnight's reading of James sees the first-century Jewish-Christian community battling over issues of personal equity and social justice and struggling to find godly and workable solutions. With today's church struggling to find biblical solutions to the same kinds of problems, McKnight's explanation of James is a welcomed voice in the conversation."

Craig S. Keener
-Palmer Theological Seminary
"McKnight has produced a readable and carefully organized commentary packed full of concrete insights. He brilliantly blends the best thoughts of earlier scholarship with innovative thinking, and remains sensitive throughout to both ancient context and his modern audience."

    I have to be up-front here - James is my favorite NT book, the NICNT is my favorite commentary series and Scot McKnight is one of my favorite contemporary theologians. So I was very excited when I found out this was going to be a reality and I purchased it to use for preaching through James recently. I was not let down and very pleased with this book.

    The NICNT is one of the best multi-purpose and semi-technical commentaries on the market today. They are solidly evangelical and solidly exegetical, without getting too bogged down with unnecessary detailing. They might be a tad much for those without theological training, but I would highly encourage laypeople to pick up one (especially this one!) and see if they feel comfortable with it. All the Greek/Hebrew is transliterated or footnoted and overall they help you understand the text on a deeper level and usually end with theological or application points, but they don't hold your hand or tell you exactly what to believe. They're a great all-around series for seminary students as well as for those preaching and teaching.

    I certainly appreciate Scot McKnight's take on all things related to the faith and would encourage you to read his other works, which can all be found on this website!
