This is a great resource for anyone looking to get deeper into the Bible. My church is teaching through James right now and this is a great companion for my study at home.

I bought one of these books for my husband a while back ago (Book on John). My husband said it was an excellent book and wanted me to see if Swindoll wrote on other books. When I found out they did, I purchased them for my husband and he loves them!

This book is an excellent Bible commentary on James, 1 Peter, and 2 Peter. The author explained the meaning of various key Greek words to help the reader understand confusing passages and to bring out the full meaning of the text. He also provided information on the cultural and historical background and quoted similar statements made elsewhere in the Bible to help the reader fully understand the letter's message.
Each letter (James, 1 Peter, and 2 Peter) had it's own self-contained section in the book. The author started each by explaining who wrote the letter, when it was written, and who it was written to. He briefly described the writer's life up to the point the letter was written so we could see what influenced his writing. He included a time-line chart showing critical events in the author's life and historical events that influenced the writing. There was also a map showing where the people written to were located.
Each letter was studied overall and verse-by-verse in sections defined by the major themes in the letter. At the end of each thematic section, he discussed how we can apply the writer's message to our own lives. He also included occasional "journal" pages were he talked about how the verses just discussed had been applied or worked out in his life.
While you'll get the most insight into confusing passages by reading the book/letter's whole commentary, you can also look up just a single verse.
Despite the "digging deeper" nature of the commentary, the author explained things in a way that was easy to follow and understand. It's packed with information; there's very little "fluff." Overall, I'd highly recommend this book to anyone confused by passages in James, 1 Peter, or 2 Peter or to those who simply want to increase their understanding of these letter/books.
I received this book as a review copy from the publisher.

All of Charles Swindoll's Commentaries are great. Romans, John, James, and 1st and 2nd Peter. Such as, "We must admit our helplessness and accept His supernatural intervention Daily."also, " By His grace."A free gift given, not because we are good, but because He is good. It is worth it.
