Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fascinating  Oct 24, 2007
This book, intelligible to the layman, has many fascinating insights into the organization of the early Church. Its chief attribute, however, is the "conciliation" of James and Paul in terms of faith and works. Luther is often quoted as disliking James and terming the book a "right strawy
epistle," but he used that phrase only once - in the introduction to his translation of the New Testament, published in 1522. It was removed from further editions. This idea, that James and Paul had different theologies, might have been a remnant of Luther's Catholicism (see Lowell Green's book on how Melancthon "helped Luther discover the Gospel"). James clearly also advocates sola fide, once you understand that faith is not simply an acknowledgment of who Jesus is, but rather a form of trust.
James gets his due from a Lutheran   Jun 9, 2005
In this short work, David Scaer provides an excellent and very readable commentary on the Epistle of James. Luther's distaste for the book is well-known, leaving some Lutherans more apt to undervalue the book. And mainly this is over the apparent contradiction on justification between James and the Apostle Paul, whose writings and theological weight dominate the New Testament.

But Scaer adeptly demonstrates that the Apostle James was not a theologian of works, and was addressing different issues than the Apostle Paul, who wrote later than James' epistle. Scaer's book is most valuable for its unlocking of a thoroughly Christological reading of the epistle. He carefully demonstrates how the language of James is loaded with theological imagery, especially drawn from the Gospels and Jesus' teachings in the Sermon on the Mount.

I did find it a bit unusual how often Scaer suggests that other NT authors may actually have been 'dependent' on James, or at least developed his ideas in more detail. But this is based on his view that James is not only one of the earliest NT writings, but the very first. But regardless, the book shows clearly throughout, that James was not a mere preacher of morals, but a writer who was clearly drawing on Christological imagery to demonstrate the shape of the Christian life and the responsibility of pastors. The back cover summarizes the book the best: "You may not agree with everything he says, but your thinking will certainly be stimulated." I certainly found this book increased my understanding of James, and would highly recommend it to all readers; and especially to Lutherans who struggle with reconciling James and Paul on the relationship of faith and works. Scaer ably shows the harmony, rather than discontinuity between the two.
