Overview

Written with the average church member in mind, this pastoral commentary on the Epistle of St James offers readers a clear explanation of the Saint's influential letter. Quotations from church fathers and parallel expressions from Scripture create a methodology consistent with Orthodox tradition.

By also using hymns and texts from the Orthodox liturgical services, the author supplies deeper and broader contexts for familiar biblical verses. The book is appropriate for personal and group biblical study and for spiritual guidance and edification, and serves also as a useful aid to pastors in teaching and in the preparation of homilies.
