In this extensive study, Peter H. Davids considers questions concerning authorship, date of composition, form and structure, and the language and style of the text. He also explores seven key theological themes in James: suffering/testing; eschatology; Christology; poverty-piety; the relation of law, grace, and faith; wisdom; and prayer. Davids is well acquainted with the relevant Hellenistic, Jewish, and early Christian literature and uses it frequently to point out parallels and to clarify the meaning of the text.

Review 1 for The Epistle of James: New International Greek Testament Commentary [NIGTC]
Date:July 21, 2001
A well written Commentary by Davids; but lacks depth. After reading Davids, the serious reader will need to turn to other works on James, like Moos Letter of James (Pillar) CBD# 37302 or Adamsons The Epistle of James (NICNT) CBD# 2515, to get a fuller meaning of the text.
