Assessment: Unquestionably, D. Eric Williams' work fits broadly within the evangelical tradition and specifically within the Reformed tradition. His exegesis and exposition is generally competent. Obviously, his theological commitments do shine through in his exposition. At times, his use of Paul to interpret James may create problems for James, but understandly, as he seeks to explain James, he does so within the wider context of a biblical theology, which takes into account its' relationship to the canon of Scripture as a whole. Thus, it is a theological exposition of the text. In terms of writing, Williams generally does a good job of connecting chapters together, which aids the flow and continuity of the work. But at times, I found myself lost within the chapters in trying to find out which phrase or verse he was discussing. A remedy may be to add sections headings within the chapters. Overall, he provides a clear exposition of James' epistle.
Who might this book interest? I think that Williams' book would be of interest to pastors who are preaching in or through the Epistle of James. In addition, the length of the chapters would make it a useful daily devotional.
