James: Evangelical Exegetical Commentary (EEC)
The EEC is the next standard commentary on the entire Bible for evangelicals. The Word Biblical Commentary and the Baker Exegetical Commentary and other similar commentary sets have served the church for the past decade. Now, a new generation of pastors, students, and scholars will turn to the EEC for expert commentary from the leading scholars on the Bible.
James has been called the Proverbs of the New Testament.
William Varner proves it is much more. Although James contains a higher percentage of commands than any other biblical book,
Varner argues that it is more than a loosely organized manual for righteous living. By interacting with current scholarship and analyzing the Greek text,
Varner examines how James challenges believers to choose heavenly wisdom over earthly philosophies.
Offering creative insight on preaching and applying the text, Varner guides readers to a better understanding of James--the man and his letter.
