The best thing about Adamson is the number of excurses he has that discuss matters in significant detail that others simply give a passing reference (e.g. a few pages on the word "all" in "all joy" in 1:2). Other than these, I did not find the commentary very valuable, except at times. Other than that, Adamson shows himself willing and ready to emend the text without any textual variant support. I think this is an unwarranted practice and it makes me skeptical of him. Second, he refers a little too often to comparisons between James and Judaism--something James was saved out of.Compared w/ Martin, Blomberg and Davids, this gets rank 4.
