Book Description

19 Jun 2009 Tyndale New Testament Commentaries
The epistle of James has often been defined in terms of moral earnestness, repentance and consistent social action, leading many to argue that it is not theological. This separation between theology and practice, Douglas J. Moo observes, can all too easily lead people to read Scripture as a book to be analyzed rather than a message to be obeyed - the very mindset against which James inveighs. Moo's exposition of these themes illuminates James's rich letter and its message for us today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sharing Lives in the Church 15 July 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A commentary on Paul's earliest letter is always a good thing to have. In this commentary, the author highlights that 1 Thessalonians is a love letter just like Philippians. In chapter 2 verse 8 Paul writes: 'We loved you so much that we were willing to share not only the gospel of God, but also our lives.' This verse was a living reality to me when I was a member of All Souls Langham Place. There, I had Christians participate in my life by sharing not only the gospel of God but also their lives. Sharing the gospel is sharing the gift of self, and unless you're giving of yourself in Christian fellowship you are not sharing the gospel at all. The commentator, Leon Morris, goes on to say that sharing your life with other Christians is a way of them supplying what you lack in your faith, and you supplying what they lack in their faith. If you are not growing in your faith at church then it is usually because Christians are not sharing their lives with you to prevent you from falling short of where you should be. This is why Christians must increase in love for each other so that they can help each other grow in their faith.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid and Capable 24 Dec 2008
By H. Geschichtemann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As with most of the commentaries in the Tyndale series, this one serves very well for my purpose, which is the preparation of a weekly Bible study class for an audience that is not -- and has no need to be -- deeply involved in the arcane minutiae and frequent wild leaps of logic associated with "serious" textual criticism.

The two epistles are well-set in their historical context, both in terms of the issues addressed and the order of their appearance among other New Testament works.

Linguistic analysis of the Greek text is competent and helpful without being overbearing. (I always study with two Greek texts open, but it is still nice to have somebody point out points of special significance.)

I strongly recommend this book for the purpose that I have described or simply for someone who wants to study the epistles to the Thessalonians with greater insight than that provided by many other commentaries but without having to wade through the "airs above the ground" executed by too many critical scholars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Commentary. 27 Aug 2008
By J. M. Carbo - Published on Amazon.com
This is a top notch intermediate level commentary. For it's size, very in depth, and informative. For those who want to get a deeper understanding of the word, but not drowned with too much greek, and scholarly trivia this is for you.
