Item description for James by D. Edmond Hiebert...
Overview This book is a welcome treatment of what many consider a prickly topic. If a Christian is saved by grace alone , how important are his good deeds afterwards? Does a profession of faith mean more than verbal affirmation. For centuries, the epistles of James has made Christians uncomfortable with its emphasis on right living as well as right believing. The apostle James represented a tradition of strict and consistent commitment to proper lifestyle that was unfamiliar to most Gentile believers in the early church. Later Christian leaders, such as Martin Luther, believed that James stressed adherence to God's law over acceptance of His grace. Therefore they never credit James with the same authority as the other New Testament writings. Unfortunately, such a view springs from misunderstanding. As in his other commentaries, D. Edmond Hiebert uses his knowledge of Greek to practical effects for pastors and lay people alike. His expositional approach is well-suited for public study. Dr. Hiebert manages to write in a way that reflects James's practicality. He thoughtfully provides a bibliography for further reading.
