"James was a wonderful theologian, but he also was involved in people's lives in a practical way on a daily basis. His writing comes from the heart of a man who understood that Christianity was supposed to produce good works... genuine 'shoe-leather Christians'... live what they believe." - Steve Gaines, Pastor, Great Bellevue Baptist, Memphis, Tennessee

"This is good reading and instruction for the Christian and the unbeliever but especially for the church. Although the lessons taught are God are difficult to put in to practice the outcome of the compliance will be God honouring." - The Gospel Magazine

"Closely tied to the text of Scripture... the writing is clear and accessible... biblical exposition is applied to life... All in all, this is a solid and useful commentary written by two pastor-scholars to help the church be the church as God intended." - Robert A. Peterson, Professor of Systematic Theology, Covenant Theological Seminary, St Louis, Missouri
