Excellent Commentary on James
This is the second commentary I have read in this series and I must say they are doing a great job. My favorite part is the outline of the structure of the passage being discussed. This outline is beneficial to understanding the context of the passage and to steer away from careless translation, which of course leads to careless application. The handling of the Greek text is sufficiently comprehensive I believe; I know enough biblical Greek to be dangerous, but I think even those without any exposure to Greek can follow the author’s explanations.
The system the authors use of Literary Context, Main Idea, Structure, Exegetical Outline, Explanation of the Text and Theology in Application, for each passage is ideal. While I can’t say I agree 100% (who can) with the author’s conclusions (especially in the Theology in Application sections), I think they give an even-handed treatment to the text and strike the right balance of spirituality and scholarship. All in all, this series is fast becoming my favorite commentary series.
