In The Genre, Composition and Hermeneutics of the Epistle of James, Luke L. Cheung examines the employment of the wisdom genre with a certain compositional structure, and the interpretation of the law through Jesus' tradition of the double love command by the author of the Epistle of James to serve his purpose in promoting perfection and warning against doubleness among the eschatologically renewed people of God in the Diaspora. In particular, he shows how the genre, composition and hermeneutics of James all contribute to the central pastoral concern of this epistle.
