The Pillar New Testament Commentary (PNTC)
books in the New Testament are better known or more often quoted as the
Letter of James. Because James is so concise, so intensely practical,

introduces the Letter of James in its historical context and then
provides verse-by-verse comments that explain the message of James both
to its first readers and to today's church.
