James: A New Testament Commentary
The clouds of legalism were forming over the church at Jerusalem, hindering the ministries of Peter and Paul. Peter eventually left the Jerusalem church for James to oversee. As pastor, James recognized the hypocrisy and legalism and addressed these issues both with his congregation and the Jews who were scattered.
In this commentary taken from his personal notes, Bob Yandian dissects, verse-by-verse, the best pastoral epistle ever written, showing the heart of a true pastor and the devastating effects of legalism in the church.
