Overview

With 59 commands in 108 verses, the epistle of James contains an obvious zeal for law. James, in his imperatives, directs us to the royal law, the law of King Jesus (2:8). Because of this, the hasty reader will not see much of the gospel in James, but as Doriani reveals in his insightful commentary, the double mention of God's grace at the rhetorical climax of the book shows that the gospel of James is still the message of God's grace for sinners.

Editorial Reviews

JI Packer
Well-researched and well-reasoned, practical and pastoral, shrewd, solid and searching, this is a truly Jamesish exposition of James’s letter, top-class in everyway.
Bryan Chapell
Those of us who regularly preach need commentaries that provide the best biblical scholarship and also understand the practical challenges of todays pastorate. The Reformed Expository Commentary series, prepared by Reformed preachers of great scholarly ability, ably speaks to both needs. As a combined exegetical and homiletical commentary, it is a sermon preparation text of exceptional value. The authors of the Westminster Confession of Faith advised pastors to speak to both the necessities and capacities’ of our people. This commentary series, which so well understands God’s Word and God’s people, greatly aids in that dual task of faithful preacher.
J. Ligon Duncan III
A canonical, Reformed expositional commentary has long been a desideratum, and we are now in debt to this gifted team of pastor-theologians for bringing it to pass.
