Publisher's Description

This unique reception history of the Epistle of James is a prominent addition to the Blackwell Bible Commentaries series. Written by an outstanding New Testament specialist, it chronicles the major theological, political, and aesthetic responses to the text over the centuries, and to James as a historical figure.

  • Includes extensive excerpts offering vital historiographical context
  • Examines James’s impact on popular culture, including examples such as Charles Schulz’s Peanuts
  • Unearths a range of neglected writings and opens access to material not readily available elsewhere
