In James [NIVAC] David Nystrom treats what is arguably the most challenging call for discipleship in the New Testament. But such a call raises many questions. Why does James seem to be so focused on "works" and other NT writers so focused on grace? And why does James seem to quote Jesus so much when others do not? Nystrom skillfully answers these difficult questions and many others while applying the text directly to our daily lives in this compelling and thought provoking commentary.
About the Series
This unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today. Therefore, the NIV Application Commentary Series helps with both halves of the interpretative task: exegesis and theological application.
Additionally, the unique reader friendly format and the direct pinning of the entire series to the NIV, make it exceptionally easy for non-specialist readers to follow and learn from.
Commentary authors will, at times, work with the original languages but complete explanations are always given in non-specialist language; and they serve the exclusive function of further explicating the text at hand. The same approach is taken with all complex issues and interpretive matters. The focus is on learning and applying and every tool used by the commentators serves this end.
