Abstract:

"The Evangelical Exegetical Commentary series incorporates the latest in critical biblical scholarship and is written from a distinctly evangelical perspective. Each comprehensive volume offers and original translation and addresses biblical theology and application for each passage. James has been called the Proverbs of the New Testament. William Varner proves it is much more. Although James contains a higher percentage of commands than any other biblical book, Varner argues that it is more than a loosely organized manual for righteous living. By interacting with current scholarship and analyzing the Greek text, Varner examines how James challenges believers to choose heavenly wisdom over earthly philosophies. Offering creative insight on preaching and applying the text, Varner guides readers to a better understanding of James -- the man and his letter." --
