This expositional commentary on one of the Bibles most popular books combines careful scholarship and clear communication in a way that informs and helps a wide range of readers, from serious Bible students to interested laypersons. James Montgomery Boice not only explains the meaning of the text verse by verse and section by section, he relates the texts concerns to the world in which we live, the life of the church, and the realities of the Christian life. He occasionally interrupts the verse-by-verse commentary for more extended treatment of key themes.
Based on messages preached at Philadelphias world-renowned Tenth Presbyterian Church, these expositions are ideal models for preachers and excellent resources for teachers of classes and small groups. There are five volumes in the commentary, each comprising a major section of the Gospel:
-The Coming of the Light
-Christ and Judaism
-Those Who Received Him
-Peace in Storm
-Triumph through Tragedy
An earlier edition of this commentary, based on the KJV text, was published by Zondervan in 1985. This edition has been totally redesigned and uses the NIV. [via]
