The book of James has a lot of guidance in it, but it may not always be easy to understand the nuances of the verses. A commentary can help, and one that is in plain language is that much better. The Everyday Bible Commentary on James unpacks the book so that it is understandable by all.
This commentary is thorough, but still easy to use. The different topics in James are broken down and explained, both how they applied to James’ audience and what they mean to us now. It is meant to use as you read through James, whether in personal study or preparing to teach it. I’ve seen several other commentaries on James, this is one of the best I’ve seen as far as breaking the meanings down while not getting overly complicated.
If you regularly teach Bible studies, this commentary can help you better explain the text to most any age you’d have in the audience. Even if you just want to study James on your own, this will give you a better understanding of what you’re reading.
I received a free copy of this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
