"Well researched and well reasoned, practical and pastoral, shrewd, solid, and searching, this is a truly Jamesish exposition of James's letter, top-class in every way." --J. I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver
"Those of us who regularly preach need commentaries that provide the best biblical scholarship and also understand the practical challenges of today's pastorate. The Reformed Expository Commentary series, prepared by Reformed preachers of great scholarly ability, ably speaks to both needs. As a combined exegetical and homiletical commentary, it is a sermon preparation tool of exceptional value. The authors of the Westminster Confession of Faith advised pastors to speak to both 'the necessities and capacities' of our people. This commentary series, which so well understands God's Word and God's people, greatly aids in that dual task of faithful preachers." --Bryan Chapell, President, Covenant Theological Seminary
"A canonical, Reformed expositional commentary has long been a desideratum, and we are now in debt to this gifted team of pastor-theologians for bringing it to pass." --J. Ligon Duncan, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, Mississippi

With that out of the way I just wanted to say that I very much enjoyed this commentary, and it impressed me enough to buy another book in the series. The book is about two hundred pages long, spaced out into chapters of idealogical themes within James. And maybe it's because I'm not a pastor, but one thing that just jumped out at me was how accessable it was. It might be that it's just the subject matter, but I found this book to be very devotional in nature. After a chapter of God judging those who partake in favoratism, say they'll do things and don't, etc... there was always plenty to reflect on and repent of.
One thing I appreciated about this series is that he used the ESV, NASB, and NIV, but gave reasons why each was used, or used all three so you could compare. He didn't just say avoid the Nearly Inspired Version, when he thought the NIV was wrong he'd go into why, another time when he thought the NIV was the only one that got it right he'd go into why. It was an interesting side issue that never bogged down the work.
The whole book read like a sermon from an excellent pastor, I feel like I have a much better grasp of the book of James after reading this, and would highly recommend it to anyone. As a side note I really didn't find, with the exception of one paragraph, anything that was strictly Reformed in perspective, which is just due to the nature of James. The upside of that is that it can be loaned to my Armenian friends without restarting a giant argument.
Was very pleased with this and if the others in the series are as good as this one, I think we've got a great new powerful resource to draw off of.
