High Definition Commentary: James

Everyone who reads commentaries on biblical books knows they have different strengths. Some focus on words, others on Greek syntax, others on critical theory, still others on theological reflection – and a few attempt a bit of everything. This High Definition Commentary: James (which follows up on Steven Runge's earlier HD commentaries on Philippians and Romans) reads James through the discipline of discourse analysis. The focus is less on what James says than on how he says it, so as better to appreciate the flow and emphases of what he writes. Runge's earlier volume, Discourse Grammar of the Greek New Testament: A Practical Introduction of Teaching and Exegesis (2010) unpacks his take on this discipline and tells readers how to use discourse analysis as they study the Greek New Testament, but does not do it for them. These HD commentaries do it for them in a readable, simple, helpful way, pitched at those who want to understand the flow of the argument but whose Greek is minimal (or even non-existent). Readers who depend on visual learning will appreciate the clear and simple graphics; others will happily skip over them. But all will be helped to ponder with fresh eyes some of the easily overlooked elements of what God has given us through his servant James.

—D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

What happens when you take the results of Greek discourse analysis, traditional exegesis, and creative high-tech graphics and apply them all to the Letter of James in order to write a “bottom-shelf,” highly accessible, succinct commentary? You get this wonderful, little book. It is reliable, easy to read, insightful and convicting all at once!

—Craig Blomberg, Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Denver Seminary

Not many authors are able to produce high-end scholarship while also being able to put the cookies on the lower shelf for everyone’s benefit. Steve Runge again shows that he is one such author with this fresh exposition of the letter of James, in an exciting and original commentary series. If you want to grasp the big picture of James, and understand how the picture is put together, this commentary will prove very helpful. Warmly recommended.

—Constantine R. Campbell, Associate Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

Steve Runge is not only one of the pioneers of discourse analysis of the Greek New Testament, but he is also a pioneer of a new type of New Testament commentary: one that is built on the rigorous observations of discourse analysis, and yet is packaged in a very accessible manner to be used by anyone wanting a helpful guide through the text. Alongside informed and insightful handling of the Epistle to the Romans, this commentary includes helpful images, illustrations, and applications, all of which will benefit preacher and general Bible reader alike.

—Constantine R. Campbell, PhD, associate professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

Romans can be daunting for students. What is Paul saying and how do we understand it? We can be thankful to Runge for providing us with a discourse analysis of the letter which is accessible to the ordinary person. The many slides in the book also assist us in grasping what Paul is up to in the letter. Runge’s work on Romans will be helpful to scholars, preachers and teachers, and students of the scriptures.

—Tom Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation, associate dean, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Steve Runge presents a learned and helpful study of Paul’s letter to the Romans. It is a visually stimulating work where Paul’s thoughts are literally mapped out in front of you. Runge successfully shows the reader how Paul’s argument in the letter is put together on one block after another. It is a great tool for anyone who is serious about teaching Romans!

—Michael F. Bird, PhD, University of Queensland, lecture in theology at Ridley College
