Admittedly, Christians have been confused for some time between faith and works. Is salvation both/and or either/or? After all, what came first...the chicken or the egg?
Such a subject can be divisive and intimidating. Rightfully so, because it draws a line in the sand.
This subject is addressed properly by the author and is done so comprehensively and clearly. The accomplishment of the author to show that the two are in harmony with each other is highlighted throughout the book. Readers will likely enjoy this book as it examines the historical contexts and exegetical concepts. Those factors alone make this book a valid resource in a pastor/teacher's hands.
Before jumping into the debate, the author is careful to rehearse and introduce what each person (Paul and James) were standing on. This helps the reader understand the grounds of the debate. But when all is said and done, there really is no debate between Paul and James. They are both centered on the true gospel of Jesus Christ.
