Product Description

The Letter of James [PNTC] emphasizes James's creative use of Hellenistic Jewish traditions in his exposition of practical Christianity. Moo introduces the letter in its historical context and then provides verse-by-verse comments that explains the disciple's message to its first readers and to today's church---spiritual wholeness while also addressing James' unique usage of Jesus' teaching as found in the Gospel of Matthew. Academic and accessible, scholarly and sensitive.

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.

    I was required to purchase this book for a seminary course, and the commentary was excellent. I expect nothing less from Dr. Moo. It is easy to read, as well as thorough intellectually. I know that I will put this volume to use again when I teach anything from the epistle of James.

    I really appreciate how thoroughly Moo addresses the relevant issues in an engaging and scholarly way. He questions the NIV translation where necessary, has good discussion in his word studies, and has a great introduction. Good focus on the central theme of spiritual wholeness.

    This commentarty will be of great use if you are interested in a somewhat technical resource. Moo devotes a lot of attention to language and translation. This is a solid tool for analyzing the text. However, if you are looking for something of a devotional nature you'll want to go elsewhere (such as Wiersbe's commentary).

    Moo has put together an excellent treatment of James. This was an interesting read, and I'm sure it will remain a valuable resource in my library.

    The Pillar New Testament Commentary series is one of my favorites and I look forward to each new publication. Douglas Moo has exceeded all of my expectations with this new commentary on the letter of James. It is thorough, clear and comprehensive. Moo provides excellent background material, all of the most plausible interpretations of difficult passages with an exaustive presentation of his own interpretation, and thoughtful application. The introduction is just tremendous. I came away from this one with a much better understanding of James' epistle!
