Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Logos and Law in the Letter of James: The Law of Nature, the Law of Moses, and the Law of Freedom presents the table of contents, list of abbreviations and acknowledgments. The book examines the association of "implanted logos" and the "perfect law of freedom" in the Letter of James. The Letter of James ranks among the most enigmatic works of early Christian literature. The first and most basic requirement of any attempt to define James's place within (or without) emerging Christianity on this basis is some broad reconstruction of the origins and development of early Christian thought more generally. In short, the Letter of James "has nothing of the nature of the gospel about it". Luther ultimately concluded, therefore, that James "is not the work of any apostle".

Keywords: Christianity; Jesus Christ; Letter of James; Luther
