Publisher's Description

Few books in the New Testament are better known or more often quoted as the Letter of James. Because James is so concise, so intensely practical, and so filled with memorable metaphors and illustrations, it has become one of the two or three most popular New Testament books in the church.

This highly original commentary seeks to make the Letter of James clear and applicable to Christian living today. Interacting with the latest views on James but keeping academic references to a minimum, Douglas Moo first introduces the Letter of James in its historical context and then provides verse-by-verse comments that explain the message of James both to its first readers and to today's church.

Author Bio

Douglas J. Moo is Kenneth T. Wessner Professor of Biblical Studies at Wheaton College Graduate School. His other books include commentaries on Galatians, Colossians, and James.

Endorsements

Interpretation
The commentary is most valuable for its excellent exegesis, which is not so technical that the non-scholar would find it tedious. Homiletical and devotional insights, which pervade the work, also make the volume a worthwhile addition to the Bible student's library.

Southwestern Journal of Theology
There is much to be gained from this commentary, both exegetical and practical, by pastors and serious students.

Methodist Recorder (UK)
Moo has many insights into the challenges James presents to the Church of his time and of today. JamesÂ’s contention, that Christians must not only reflect theologically about life but also live a holy and obedient lifestyle, is a timely word which ought to be heard and heeded, especially in the western Church of this new millenniumÂ…. This re-evaluation of James is much to be commended.
