NICNT: Letter of James

NICNT: Letter of James

Pastors and scholars have often found the letter of James particularly vexing
both to interpret and to apply. Scot McKnightÆs commentary expounds James both
in its own context and in the context of ancient Judaism, the Greco-Roman
world, and the emerging Christian faith. Though interacting with the best
available scholarly work on James, McKnight first connects deeply with the text
of the letter itself, striving to interpret JamesÆs teaching rigorously in
light of what he says elsewhere in his letter rather than smothering the
epistle in extrinsic debates and theories. Shaped from beginning to end for
pastors, preachers, and teachers, this accessible commentary ù full of insight,
good sense, and wit ù will shed fresh light for those who want to explain James
and its significance to their congregations and classes.

Scot McKnight has written a very readable, evangelical commentary on " James. While covering the traditional bases and literature, he also includes a
number of new readings of the data that make his work fresh and intriguing.
This book will be viewed as a standard evangelical work that needs to be
consulted in any future work on this letter. - Peter H. Davids
McKnight has produced a readable and carefully organized commentary packed " full of concrete insights. He brilliantly blends the best thoughts of earlier
scholarship with innovative thinking, and remains sensitive throughout to both
ancient context and his modern audience. - Craig S. Keener
