The epistle of James is a beautifully constructed Christian letter written by an author with a pastor’s heart. The writer is a skilled communicator. His style is both terse and graphic, employing a wide range of effective illustrations, making it easy to believe that he also taught God’s truth orally with considerable power. An indispensible element of the New Testament canon, the letter’s profound substance renders invalid Luther’s initial evaluation of the work as a “right strawy epistle.” The book of James is the voice of a great Christian leader whose grasp of the spiritual life and of human nature is equal to any in the canon of New Testament Scripture. The modern Church ignores James’s immensely practical admonitions at its own peril. In every way the epistle of James justifies the church’s historic, collective judgment that it belongs among the writings which are given by inspiration of God. Hodges’ commentary affirms the position of James in the New Testament canon and its usefulness for the church today.

I own many commentaries on James, but none of them captures the meaning of James so clearly and simply as this one. I recommend it above all others.

—Earl D. Radmacher, Th.D. President Emeritus, Western Seminary, Portland, Oregon

Read this book only if you are prepared to be challenged by a clear and convincing presentation of such topics as the tongue, anger, affluence, and a lifestyle that will be rewarded.

—Art Farstad, Executive Director, New King James Version, Dallas, Texas
