NEW James Commentary, Dr. Dan G. McCartney

October 20, 2009

For ten years, Dan G. McCartney, Westminster PhD 1989, has labored on this precious commentary on James. We highly recommend it to all Bible readers.

"McCartney shows firm control of the secondary literature while retaining an independent judgment on the original text itself. His exposition is thorough, clear and consistently on target; and his extensive additional notes and excurses are the icing on the cake. This work deserves a warm reception." - Moises Silva, Westminster PhD 1969, author of Philippians



"Dan McCartney's commentary on James is a fresh and important contribution to the literature on James. He convincingly argues that faith plays a central role in the letter. McCartney writes lucidly and clearly while ably surveying various interpretations. This work is exegetically rewarding, theologically rooted, and pastorally wise."
- Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Dan McCartney has written an informed, scholarly, and evangelical commentary on James that is both readable and informative. It contains fresh perspectives in addition to covering the ground that all solid commentaries need to cover. It will be quite useful to evangelical pastors who want a solid basis for preaching or teaching on James."
- Peter H. Davids, professor of biblical theology, St. Stephen's University

Praise for the series:

"This series has set a new standard in reader-friendliness with its attractive presentation that combines detailed exegetical comment on the Greek text with accessibility for those who have little or no knowledge of the original language of the New Testament."
- I. Howard Marshall, University of Aberdeen

"In this age of unprecedented proliferation of biblical commentary series, it is an outstanding accomplishment for the Baker Exegetical series consistently to have produced what with only rare exceptions have become the best available commentaries on the Greek text of the New Testament book or books treated."
- Craig Blomberg, Denver Journal
