I turn to the collective wisdom of the list for assistance in some  
Luther's antipathy toward the Letter of James--he called it a "letter  
of straw"--is well-known and clearly grounded in his resistance to  
that letter's ostensible elevation of the importance of works in  
relation to faith.
Can anyone point me toward discussions of James and the question of  
works by English reformers of the second half of the 16th and first  
quarter of the 17th centuries (say, 1560-1615)?  The Geneva Bible's  
gloss on James 2 offers a condensed account.  Are there other, more  
extensive discussions to which I should turn?
