The Gospel of John, says James Montgomery Boice, is "a powerful source of instruction and comfort to many millions of God's people down through the ages of church history." Exploring chapters 1-4, this first volume on the Gospel of John is an insightful study and devotional guide for serious Bible students as well as interested laypersons. James Montgomery Boice explores the coming of Jesus Christ and discusses the initial reaction some people had toward him.
This expositional commentary on one of the Bible's most popular books combines careful scholarship and clear communication in a verse-by-verse and section-by-section reading of the biblical text. Integrating thoughtful interpretation with contemporary insight for daily living, James Montgomery Boice explains the meaning of the text and relates the text's concerns to the church, Christianity, and the world in which we live.
Praise for the Print Edition
Dr. Boice's commentary series is a treasure for the church and for her pastors. No expository preacher can afford to be without it.
