Item description for Community of the Wise: The Letter of James (New Testament in Context) by Robert W. Wall...

Robert Wall's commentary interprets James from within the context of Scripture itself. By emphasizing how James compares and contrasts particularly with Paul's letters, Wall shows how vital James is as a part of the Christian canon. He argues that James contains a "way of wisdom" that guides believers through trials and on to Christian maturity. The commentary contains an introduction and several excursuses on various topics. The commentary itself focuses on passages and is written in a relatively non-technical style. Greek words are transliterated and English equivalents are provided so those with no knowledge of Greek can follow the discussion. Robert W. Wall is Professor of Biblical Studies at Seattle Pacific University.

Publishers Description
Using a variation of reader-response criticism, Melchert engages thewisdom texts in an effort to determine why the sages said and taught asthey did. He also explores what contemporary teachers and learnersmight pick up from the wisdom texts about teaching, learning, and beingwisely religious in a postmodern world. Melchert argues that the wisdomtexts presumably embody not only what these teachers wanted readers tolearn but also how it was to be learned.
