Product Description

The genius of the letter of James lies in its powerfully simple call for repentance, for action, for a consistent Christian lifestyle. In this revised commentary Douglas Moo allows James's words to cut through our theological debates, our personal preconceptions, our spiritual malaise and return us to an invigorating, transforming Christianity. This second-edition volume in the storied Tyndale New Testament Commentary series includes a new extensive introduction, analysis and section-by-section commentary of the book of James.

"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 Moo in the preface. "All this suggests that the message of James is one that we all need to hear - and obey."

About the Series:
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.

Endorsements

The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world.
-Craig Blomberg,
Denver Seminary

Tyndale commentaries are always useful, not least because they focus so clearly on the text of Scripture, and do not fall into the trap of paying too much attention to other commentaries and not enough to the scriptural text they are intended to expound and explain. So they retain their usefulness for preachers, Bible study leaders and for all readers of the Bible.
-Peter Adam,
principal, Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia

Within its constraints, this series includes some outstanding volumes.
-D. A. Carson,
Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

There simply is no series of medium-length commentaries that approaches the excellence of the Tyndale commentaries.
-Donald A. Hagner,
Fuller Theological Seminary

Editorial Reviews

"The sixteenth volume in the acclaimed 'Tyndale New Testament Commentary' series, James: Revised Edition is a masterpiece of theological scholarship and very highly recommended for personal, community, church, seminary, and academic library New Testament studies reference collections and supplemental studies reading lists."

    Douglas J. Moo is is one of the most well-known conservative commentators on scripture today. He is an editor and author of countless works and is currently serving as the professor of New Testament at Wheaton College. It is therefore fitting that Moo uses prolific status as a New Testament commentator to tackle a revised edition of his commentary on the Book of James in IVPs Commentary series, Tyndale New Testament commentaries. Moo is also known to have written a commentary in the Pillar New Testament Commentary series on the book of James, yet that work is more academic in nature. That is not to say that the TNTC series does not strive for academic excellence, rather its focus is on practical application, and its audience is aimed towards someone who does not necessarily have a high level of thelogical education.

    While looking at the commentary itself, Moo begins with a excellent introduction, holding fast to James, the bother of Jesus, as the author of the book which bears his name. Furthermore he details the circumstances as well as the nature of the letter as well as formulating one of the best outline on book of James I have seen to date. In regard to the textual commentary, Moo focuses on the modern reader, yet never under estimating the importance of the original context. Furthermore he gives great focus to a Biblical Theological study of this New Testament epistle.

    In regard to the tone as well as the practical application of this work, Moo writes with a deeply convicting pastoral nature. Moo uses his position as a professor and his pastoral hear in every paragraph of this work. You can see his desire for academic excellence paired with his desire for anyone who reads the Book of James to grow in their face and have their faith demonstrated by their works. Lastly Moo gives a plethora of practical application which a pastor, Bible Study leader, or Layman, can you use in their teaching as well as personal study. I highly recommend this commentary to any and all of the app for mentioned people, for this work theres many future readings.

    This book was provided to me free of charge from IVP Academic in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.

    Tyndale Commentaries (IVP) continues its quest to revise its venerable Old and New Testament series. With a few Old Testament volumes already out, this volume is the first one for the New Testament. In this case, the editors chose to retain well-known scholar Douglas Moo. Although it is not a major revision (some paragraphs are unchanged), Mr. Moo is an active scholar who has also written a larger commentary on James as well as several others. The editors made a good choice here.

    As we have come to expect from this series, the introduction is succinct and appropriate. All the key issues are brought up and made sense of. Authorship, background, date, structure, and theological emphasis are all well covered. I found myself agreeing with many of his conclusions.

    In the commentary, each passage is discussed in terms of context, commentary, and theology. That format is ideal to help grasp the meaning of the passage. The help is more substantial than many of the briefer commentaries out there.

    In the key test in evaluating the value of any commentary on James, this volume succeeds in making friends of Paul and James and their respective theologies. Both in the Introduction and the commentary proper, Mr. Moo, with clear analysis of the theological points and probing interaction with the text itself, makes his case.

    Of course there is much more to James and this volume handles it well too. This is a solid commentary.

    I received this book free from the publisher. 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.
