J. W. Roberts explores this general epistle that outlines the walk of faith for Christians. He points out remarkable parallels to the Sermon on the Mount as well as the relationship between faith and works.

In this commentary, Duane Warden thoroughly discusses James’ imperatives for seeking wisdom, being humble, avoiding favoritism, guarding the tongue, and being a “doer of the Word.” The brother of the Lord offered encouragement to Jewish brethren who were “dispersed abroad” and faced persecution. In view of the uncertainty of tomorrow, he gave assurance that the Lord will return in the day of judgment. He urged followers of Christ to awaken dead faith and demonstrate how Christianity is put into practice.
