There are not many points that Motyer doesn't address in this clear and compactly written account. The reader (or preacher) seeking to gain maximum benefit from this must read it carefully and more than once to grasp the author's thinking, which had developed and refined over a number of decades. This is not a commentary in the classical sense of the word and has little to say by way of background and context. Instead, the book is more a running discussion of the themes, with some consistent threads running through what on the surface appears to be some rather heterogenous material. Motyer shows that the dominant motif of the letter is 'the tests of life', that is, the evidence of authentic Christian faith and life in the professed believer, attested by holy living, practical concern for the poor - and mastery of speech. The purpose is to equip the contemporary preacher and believer, and it achieves this purpose admirably.

An excellent book that gives a clear interpretation of the book of James. Essential reading for all ministers and pastors.
