The epistle of James is one of the most controversial included in the canon of the New Testament. Why the controversy? James (almost certainly Jesus' brother) sets out in his letter to deal with the problem of a church that does church yet really does nothing! This devotional commentary has three sections: James in Context enables you to understand who wrote it and the situation that it addressed. Commentary divided into the major divisions of the epistle (pericopes') so that you can see the structure of the teaching as well as a verse-by- verse explanation. The Theology of James sets out the larger themes (eg justification) of the epistle and how it relates to the rest of scripture.
