Basically this text is trying to write a better 'The Message' (by Eugene Peterson) by using more consistent methodology and less annoying use of English.
Praise for James: A Very Short Commentary
(in personal correspondence) I have looked through your piece on James, and I think it could be very helpful for church-goers. The [subheadings] are important for people in their reading, for it is good to know where a biblical book is headed and how the pieces fit together. This is especially true of James which at first glance seems to go all over the place. – PETER T. O'BRIEN, Formerly Senior Research Fellow in New Testament at Moore Theological College, Sydney, Australia
Bartik has distilled some of the best scholarship on the sometimes puzzling letter of James and poured it into a modern-day translation that makes James' message easily digestible for modern readers. In doing so, he's helped to bridge the context gap between James, along with his first century readers, and us today, allowing us to hear this New Testament letter with rewarding freshness. – GEORGE ATHAS, Dean of Research, Moore Theological College, Sydney, Australia
I really like it. Makes it easier to get to the heart of what's going on. – ROGER FITZHARDINGE, Minister, Newtown:Erskineville Anglican, Sydney
It's like looking at the answers to a crossword – NATHAN DUNKLEY
