This highly original commentary on James by respected New Testament scholar Douglas Moo combines penetrating scholarship with the simplicity of style and pastoral tone characteristic of James itself.
Discussing such background issues as authorship, genre, purpose, structure and theology, Moo then provides a verse-by-verse exposition of the text that leads readers to the heart of James's message - wholehearted commitment to Christ. In addition to expounding the meaning of James, Moo also takes care to provide practical insights for applying the meaning in the church today.
A number of years in the making, interacting with the best and most recent works on James, and written for readers at all levels, this volume will quickly become a standard commentary on James.
"... A book I am glad to have on my shelves and is one to which I will often turn. The author has done his homework and has provided many cross-references to other Scriptures - all grist to the mill for preachers and students alike."
