This volume in the New International Biblical Commentary provides insightful answers for the modern reader confronted by the puzzles of James's thoroughgoing Jewish character. Davids demonstrates how the Jewishness of the epistle, including its stress on poverty and piety, stems actually from its primitive Christian character. Careful section-by-section exegesis with the NIV as the base text renders James's message accessible and relevant to students of all abilities. The NIBC has been written by internationally respected experts in Biblical Studies. Scholarly arguments are carefully analyzed and presented in a way that anyone concerned to gain a deeper understanding of the New Testament will find both accessible and helpful. Christians of many different traditions will welcome this series as a valuable resource that will promote better understanding of the Bible and its message.
