Book Notice: William Varner's new James commentary: EEC

Those of you who visit this blog may recall that I have discussed the new commentary series from Logos, The Evangelical Exegetical Commentary, in the past.

Well, the latest release in the series, the contribution of William Varner on James looks to join the ranks of stellar contributions by Moo, McKnight, and Davids. I confess that I have not had much time to look at this contribution, but Varner has already piqued my interest with how James interacts with the thoughts of the philosophers of his time (i.e. Seneca, Epictetus, Philo, etc.).

I plan on dipping into this commentary in the near future to see what Varner says about some of the more controversial Jacobean passages.
