Product description

Richard Bauckham explores the historical and literary contexts of the Epistle of James, discussing the significance of James as the brother of Jesus and leader of the early Jerusalem church. He gives special attention to the aphorisms which encapsulate James' wisdom, and to the way that James' teaching closely resembles that of Jesus.

Review quote

It is refreshing to see a biblical scholar who is willing to address theological and social problems so explicitly in his work and who can do so in such a competent manner... this is an important contribution to the study of the letter of James and merits the attention of scholars working in the field... [It] will appeal to a wide variety of readers, from those in ministry to people with a general interest in biblical studuies.
