1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Doug Hibbard VINE VOICE on May 31, 2013
Format: Hardcover
Exploring the Epistle of James is a volume in the John Phillips Commentary Series. For clarity's sake, it is written by John Phillips. Dr. Phillips was long a part of the Moody Network, helping teach others the Word of God. The entire series is available from Kregel.

James is written as a section-by-section commentary. There is an outline that breaks down the whole book, and then each segment is given individual attention through the remaining 200 pages. These comments focus more on the practical implications of the passage than the linguistic or cultural markers behind them, but the historical issues are not left out entirely.

Overall, James does not lean too heavily on digging back into the Greek language. Instead, the primary focus is drawing on the New King James translation that is used throughout the work. Phillips makes his commentary accessible in this manner, as anyone can use it.

Further, the outline of the book is straightforward. This runs counter to some attempts to make James more complicated, and instead develops linear thoughts from the text. This also becomes an easy borrow for teaching and preaching.

While the practical outlining of James makes Exploring James helpful, there are some shortcomings that drive the reader to need an additional James resource. First, there is very little discussion of the background issues of James. It is assumed that James was the brother of Jesus and the first author of a New Testament document. Further, the introduction makes several assertions which, while they are possible, are not certain. The serious student is advised to consult an additional resource to consider whether or not Phillips has filled in the blanks properly.

Informative, interesting & instructive.
Phillips' is a great commentator. I love any of his books. He doesn't avoid the truth, but makes it plain to understand.

The John Phillips commentaries are excellent. Mr. Phillips approaches Scripture literally, and provides historical background to the passages, and a great deal of insight. I only wish that his commentaries were longer and more detailed.

Well worth the money!
