Epistle of James Practically Explained is one part of Augustus Neander's larger project to put together a substantial work of practical commentaries on a selection of books from the Bible. In his commentary on James' epistle, Neander shows us James' personality as well as the nature of the churches he worked with. Little is known about the specific church to which James' epistle is addressed, but Neander explains that the Christians were of exclusively Jewish descent. As a result of their firm roots in Jewish theology, several confusions were generated about the truth of the Messiah amongst these Jewish converts. It was James' aim in his epistle to share the nature of true religion with his correspondents. Through his systematic commentary, Neander is able to help readers discover new meaning in the message of James' epistle. -Emmalon Davis, CCEL Staff Writer
