James (Zondervan Exegetical Commentary Series On The New Testament)

Craig L BlombergMariam J Kamell
Also Available In

The aim of this series is to exegete each passage of Scripture succinctly in its grammatical and historical context. Each passage is interpreted in the light of its biblical setting, with a view to grammatical detail, literary context, flow of biblical argument, and historical setting.

^^^This series is designed for those who know biblical languages. It is written primarily for the pastor and Bible teacher, not for the scholar. That is, the aim is not to review and offer a critique of every possible interpretation that has ever been given to a passage, but to exegete each passage of Scripture succinctly in its grammatical and historical context. Each passage is interpreted in the light of its biblical setting, with a view to grammatical detail, literary context, flow of biblical argument, and historical setting. While the focus will not be on application, it is expected that the authors will offer suggestions as to the direction in which application can flow.

The volume on James is the inaugural volume by New Testament scholar Craig Blomberg and researcher on James Mariam J Kamell.

Designed for the pastor and Bible teacher, the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament examines the biblical text in its originalenvironment. Notable evangelical scholars carefully attend to grammatical detail, literary context, rhetorical flow, theological nuance, and historical setting in their interpretation. Critical scholarship informs each step, but does not dominate the commentary, allowing readers to concentrate on the biblical author's message as it unfolds. While primarily designed for those witha basic knowledge of biblical Greek, all who strive to understand and teach the New Testament will find this series beneficial. The general editor for this enterprising series is Clinton E. Arnold The following focused sections help readers understandthe text:Literary Context: Explains how each passage functions within the bookMain Idea: Summarizes the central message of the passageTranslation in Graphic Layout: Presents a translation through a diagram that helps readers visualize the flow of thought within the textExegetical Outline: Gives the overall structure of the passageExplanation of the Text: Provides interpretive insights into the background and meaning of the textTheology in Application: Discusses how the message of the text fits within the book itself and in a broader biblical-theological context, suggesting applications for the church today

ZECNT James
5 stars By Steve, Sep 26 2012
I am quite impressed with this commentary. It is quite detailed yet written with pastoral warmth. It has practical applications at the end of each section which are helpful for sermon preparation or bible studies. It is comparable in quality to Moos commentary on James in the pillar series. I love the lay out too and its emphasis on us living out our Christian faith in the world including caring for those in need. One of the best commentaries on James.
