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."
