Product Description

According to the authors, the epistle of James is one of the most controversial included in the canon of the New Testament. James (almost certainly Jesus' brother) sets out in his letter to deal with the problem of a church that does church, yet really does nothing. James is forthright in spelling out some home truths to his readers.

This devotional commentary has three sections:

  • James in Context - enables the reader to understand who wrote it and the situation that it addressed.
  • Commentary - divided into the major divisions of the epistle ('pericopes') so that you can see the structure of the teaching as well as a verse-by-verse explanation.
  • The Theology of James - sets out the larger themes (e.g. justification) of the epistle and how it relates to the rest of scripture.

Editorial Reviews

James was a wonderful theologian, but he also was involved in people's lives in a practical way on a daily basis. His writing comes from the heart of a man who understood that Christianity was supposed to produce good works... genuine 'shoe-leather Christians'... live what they believe.
This is good reading and instruction for the Christian and the unbeliever but especially for the church. Although the lessons taught are God are difficult to put in to practice the outcome of the compliance will be God honouring.
Closely tied to the text of Scripture... the writing is clear and accessible... biblical exposition is applied to life... All in all, this is a solid and useful commentary written by two pastor-scholars to help the church be the church as God intended.
