About the Author

A. K. M. Adam is Senior Tutor and Tutor in New Testament, St. Stephen's House, at the University of Oxford.


"A rich and useful companion for students pressing forward toward mastery of the language. Here they will discover a wise selection of comments regarding grammar, word usage, textual criticism, theological interpretation, and more, all delivered with tasteful economy." -- Joseph R Dongell, Professor of Biblical Studies, Asbury Theological Seminary
"Adam guides readers through the Greek text of James with genuine insight. He refuses to impose judgments regarding the epistle's setting within early Christianity -- a choice that renders this work all the more valuable." -- Greg Carey, Professor of New Testament, Lancaster Theological Seminary
"Baylor's handbooks are indispensable resources for students wrestling with interpreting the Greek text of the New Testament. This handbook on James adds to that wealth by dissecting the grammar of the homiletic epistle at an intermediate level. Adam's knowledge of Greek and clarity of explanation make this a useful companion to anyone who might wish to deepen their understanding of the language of the epistle of James." -- Margaret Aymer, Associate Professor of New Testament, The Interdenominational Theological Center
Adam's handbook is highly recommended as a useful tool in exploring and digging deeply into the riches and nuances of the Greek text of the Epistle of James. -- Hector Martin -- Review of Biblical Literature
This will prove to be a useful book for students working on their exegesis of passages in James as well as pastors or teachers who want to take the original language of the text of James seriously. Many commentaries do not get as specific as Adam does in explaining most of the salient features of the Greek language that James uses. But more than merely giving grammatical labels, he unpacks for readers what those categories mean for the interpretation of James' epistle in the contexts of the letter itself. -- William W. Klein -- Denver Journal
