Using a variation of reader-response criticism, Melchert engages thewisdom texts in an effort to determine why the sages said and taught asthey did. He also explores what contemporary teachers and learnersmight pick up from the wisdom texts about teaching, learning, and beingwisely religious in a postmodern world. Melchert argues that the wisdomtexts presumably embody not only what these teachers wanted readers tolearn but also how it was to be learned.

About the Author:

Robert Wall is Professor of Biblical Studies in the School of Religion at Seattle Pacific University, Seattle, Washington, USA.

Review:

"The commentary is as gracefully written as it is critically and theologically substantial. Style and substance alike commend its use in seminary classrooms and pastors’ studies. Despite the one-way communication of the printed page, one has the sense of engaging in discussion with an honest and insightful conversation partner. The Community of the Wise is wise reading indeed!" — Sharon H. Ringe, Wesley Theological Seminary, reviewing for Interpretation, July 1998 (Sharon H. Ringe, Wesley Theological Seminary Interpretation)

"The author of this fine new commentary on James notes from his teaching experience that the message of James, with its strong challenges to integrity and justice, has an immediacy and clear relevance for modern readers...The clarity of Wall's commentary and its rich theological perspective make this a particularly valuable exposition of James." —The Bible Today, May 1998 (The Bible Today)

"...I recommend Wall’s commentary as solid on the basics, yet going beyond the normal commentary in its analysis. Upper level undergraduates as well as seminary students should find his comments on James among the more unique available to them for a reasonable price. —William R. Baker, Professor of New Testament and Greek, Saint Louis Christian College, writing in Stone-Campbell Journal, Spring 1998 (William R. Baker, Professor of New Testament Studies, Cincinnati Christian University; Editor Stone-Campbell Journal Stone-Campbell Journal)

"This commentary brings a freshness to the reading and interpretation of James...will undoubtedly satisfy those who are dissatisfied with approaches that focus exclusively on reading James in the context of the past. His focus rests with opening up the reading of James for the present and this Wall does extremely well." —Patrick J. Hartin, Gonzaga University, reviewing for Review of Biblical Literature, May 1999 (Patrick J. Hartin, Gonzaga University Review of Biblical Literature)
