Here Chris Morgan accomplishes a seldom-attempted task, laying out a biblical, coherent theology of the epistle of James. He connects the particulars of James to the big picture of the Bible and argues that its instruction is both grounded in theology and is theology applied.

The Explorations in Biblical Theology series addresses the need for quality literature that attracts believing readers to good theology and builds them up in their faith. Each title in the series combines solid content with accessibility and readability—a valuable addition to the library of any college student, thoughtful lay reader, seminarian, or pastor.

Endorsements 

"Morgan reminds us in this wonderfully lucid, practical, and faithful rendition of James's theology that James's teaching is not only in accord with the gospel, but fundamental to the gospel." — Thomas R. Schreiner, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"A no-frills study rich with potential for injecting new fervor into churches tired of the status quo. Read it! . . . Morgan not only explains to us James’s teaching, but also commends to us the costly pattern of James’s sold-out life.” — Robert W. Yarbrough, Covenant Theological Seminary

"Dr. Morgan delivers a robust theological exposition of James with an eye to the needs of the contemporary church." — John Massey, Baptist Theological Seminary, Singapore
