This is book about James, the brother of Jesus, and deals with his life and his letter
We are first given a portrait of James. He was a man who, when Jesus was on earth, did not believe Him to be the Messiah. However, all that was to change, and we are given the reason why.
The book then deals with the dating of the letter James wrote, showing it to be one of the earliest, if not the earliest, New Testament document.
The bulk of the book is a detailed and useful verse by verse commentary on the letter.
At the end we have important appendices which deal with issues such as …
· the problem of unanswered prayer, and
· why James, amongst others, considered he was living in the last days, and
· why they expected Christ to return soon.
A very useful book for all students of the Word.
