'This is indeed a thoroughly worthwhile exposition of the letter of James.' - Ministry Today

'Richard Bauckham offers us not a commentary but a study of the epistle in the light of what he sees as its historical and literary contexts ... my admiration for a stimulating work.' - Michael J. Townsend, The Expository Times Vol.III No.3, Dec. 1999

'This is a distinguished contribution to Routledge's New Testament Readings series. It combines in a single volume careful and original scholarship with helpful and discriminating hermeneutical observations.' - James Carleton Paget, Journal of Theological Studies

'... a penetrating study ...' - The Bible Today'This book will be a helpful guide to those engaging with James either in the church or the academy, and it would be a welcome read alongside a more verse-by-verse type commentary.' - Preaching & Leadership, Midwestern Journal of Theology
