About James (Volume 48):
In this volume in the Word Biblical Commentary, Ralph Martin contributes to our understanding of faith and works, salvation and ethics, gospel and law. Grappling first with the letter’s authorship, Martin argues that the epistle is the application of James’ practical teaching to a later dispute in ancient Syria when Jewish and Gentile believers struggled to define their relationship. He shows that James’ instructions on Christian “wisdom” make it an authentic word that needs to be heard today.
