The letter of James has often been defined in terms of moral earnestness, repentance and consistent social action, leading many to argue that it is not theological. This separation between theology and practice, Douglas J. Moo observes, can all too easily lead people to read Scripture as a book to be analyzed rather than a message to be obeyed—the very mindset against which James inveighs. Moo’s exposition of these themes illuminates James’s rich letter and its message for us today. In this newly revised edition, Moo draws from important books and articles on James that have been published in the 30 years since the publication of the first edition to “tweak” some of his original interpretive conclusions.

Top Highlights

“But while God may test or prove his servants in order to strengthen their faith, he never seeks to induce sin and destroy their faith.” (Page 98)

“ James’ concern is with the world getting into the church.” (Page 45)

“First, it is almost certain that the readers were Jews.” (Page 44)

“It is absolutely vital to understand that the main point of this argument, expressed three times (in vv. 17, 20 and 26), is not that works are a kind of second, unrelated, addition to faith but that genuine faith naturally produces works. That is its very nature.” (Page 133)

“First, James encourages perseverance in the midst of trials” (Page 78)

Douglas J. Moo

Dr. Douglas J. Moo, professor of New Testament, teaches at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. For over twenty years, his ministry was based at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. His academic interests revolve around the interface of exegesis and theology.

Dr. Moo seeks to model to students a rigorous approach to the Greek text that always asks the “so what” questions of ultimate significance and application. The Pauline and General Letters have been his special focus within the NT canon. In the next few years, he will be writing commentaries on Galatians and Hebrews, a Pauline theology, and a theological and practical book on creation care.

He has also been active in his local church, serving as elder most years, teaching and preaching to the church, and conducting home Bible studies. Also very rewarding has been his service on the Committee on Bible Translation, the group of scholars charged with revising the text of the NIV and with producing the TNIV.

He and his wife, Jenny, have five grown children.
