With 59 commands in 108 verses, the epistle of James has an obvious zeal for law. In his imperatives, James directly communicates the royal law, the law of King Jesus (2:8). Thus, the hasty reader will not see much of the gospel in James. But as Doriani reveals in his insightful commentary, the double mention of God's grace at the rhetorical climax of the book shows that the gospel of James is the message of God's grace for sinners.
"Well-researched and well-reasoned, practical and pastoral, shrewd, solid and searching, this is a truly Jamesish exposition of James's letter, top-class in everyway."
- JI Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College
Finds the gospel of grace in the book's climax. James, which resembles wisdom and prophetic genres, is a meditation on the teachings of Jesus.
