Overview

"Dan McCartney has written an informed, scholarly, and evangelical commentary on James that is both readable and informative. It contains fresh perspectives in addition to covering the ground that all solid commentaries need to cover. It will be quite useful to evangelical pastors who want a solid basis for preaching or teaching on James."--Peter H. Davids, professor of biblical theology, St. Stephen's University

"Dan McCartney's commentary on James is a fresh and important contribution to the literature on James. He convincingly argues that faith plays a central role in the letter. McCartney writes lucidly and clearly while ably surveying various interpretations. This work is exegetically rewarding, theologically rooted, and pastorally wise."--Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"McCartney shows firm control of the secondary literature while retaining an independent judgment on the original text itself. His exposition is thorough, clear, and consistently on target; and his extensive additional notes and excursuses are the icing on the cake. This work deserves a warm reception."--Moisés Silva, author of Philippians (BECNT)
