Therefore is Saint James's Epistle a right strawy Epistle in comparison with them, for it has no gospel character to it." (from Luther's introduction to the edition of his German New Testament, Ropes' translation) As we study the Letter, we'll see that James' divergence from Paul's salvation by grace doctrine is verbal, but not actual or real.
