Overview

James by James B. Adamson

Ageless in its appeal, the Epistle of James, says James B. Adamson, is essentially a prophetic protest that is supremely relevant to the urgent ethical and social issues confronting the modern church.

This book is an independent sequel, companion, and complement to the author's commentary on James in the New International Commentary on the New Testament series. Writing primarily for interested laypersons, students, and pastors, but also for scholars, Adamson thoroughly investigates the intriguing questions surrounding the epistle and its author and offers some fresh solutions.
