P&R. Reformed Expository Commentary Series. d.w. 240pp.
With 59 commands in 108 verses, the epistle of James contains an obvious zeal for law. James, in his imperatives, directs us to the royal law, the law of King Jesus (2:8). Because of this, the hasty reader will not see much of the gospel in James, but as Doriani reveals in his insightful commentary, the double mention of God’s grace at the rhetorical climax of the book shows that the gospel of James is still the message of God’s grace for sinners.
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 everyway.
