Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a part of the College Press NIV Commentary series and is a very good resource for teachers, preachers and small group leaders as well as for personal Bible study. The commentary is in depth without being so scholarly it becomes hard to read. It is easily read and understood by anyone and can even be used at the high school and junior high levels.

Each book, James & Jude, have an introduction, outline and bibliography for further study. The commentary text is in the traditional verse by verse format. All comments are based on the NIV text. The writing is thorough but simply stated. There are footnotes for further explanation of certain ideas and important Greek words are explained in the text. The last section of the book is an appendix on preaching and teaching from James taken from a seminar the author presented.

This book will be most valuable to someone who is teaching and is limited in budget and time.

The publisher, College Press, also published the Bible Study Textbook series which is now out of print and can be downloaded for free from the publisher's website in pdf form. The book James and Jude from this set written by Don Fream is also very good.
