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.

Of all that I've seen, this commentary probably provides the best direct help for preaching on the Psalms. Boice has written a well-crafted, easily understood commentary that provides good historical background and thoughtful suggestions for illustration.

Individual Titles

Genesis Vol. 1: Creation and Fall

  • Author: James Montgomery Boice
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1998

What can we gain from studying the Book of Genesis? According to James Montgomery Boice, starting at the beginning of everything causes us to think about God and to understand ourselves as fallen, yet redeemable. This knowledge not only deepen our understanding of the Christian faith but also enhances our ability to impart the gospel’s truth to a world desperately in need of it.

The first in a three–volume series on the Book of Genesis, Creation and Fall shows how the story of redemption—essentially all of Scripture—has no significance apart from the story of creation and fall. These first eleven chapters of Genesis establish the relationship of God to the cosmos and to all peoples of the earth.

Genesis Vol. 2: A New Beginning

  • Author: James Montgomery Boice
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1998

In this commentary on Genesis 12-36, Boice traces the "new beginning" of God's plan of redemption, which arose out of God's relationship with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. By delving into the patriarchs' lives, Boice demonstrates how much they are like us and how easily we relate to them, both in triumphs and failures.

The second of three volumes on the Book of Genesis, A New Beginning shows how God changed the course of history beginning with one less-than-perfect man. It reveals the patriarchs' stories as compelling, dramatic, and true to life. As you study their stories, writes Boice, "I trust that God will use their strengths and weaknesses, victories and failures, to guide you in the true path of discipleship and to strengthen your witness."

Genesis Vol. 3: Living by Faith

  • Author: James Montgomery Boice
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1998

No man in Scripture lived more consistently and completely for God than did Joseph, a favorite son of Jacob. In times of adversity and in times of prosperity-both of which offered the temptation to deny God and his lordship-Joseph remained steadfast.

Living by Faith is the third and final volume on Genesis. Volume 1 focused on God's relationship to the cosmos and to all peoples of the earth. Volume 2 traced the "new beginning" of God's plan of redemption. In volume 3, Boice follows the complete story of Joseph, a "man for all seasons." By exploring Joseph's loyalty to God, Boice presents him as an example for Christians today.

Joshua

  • Author: James Montgomery Boice
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1998

Joshua was a soldier. According to James Montgomery Boice, he was "one of the most extraordinary military commanders of all time." But what sets Joshua apart from his predecessors and successors, says Boice, is his obedience to the Word of God.

This insightful commentary follows a chosen commander whose obedience successfully brought him through the Jewish conquest of Canaan. Chapter by chapter and verse by verse, Boice explores the entire book of Joshua, from Joshua's military commissioning to the crossing of the Jordan River, from the Israelite victory at Jericho to the division of Canaan among the twelve tribes, which set the stage for God's people to prosper forever in obedience to him.

Nehemiah

  • Author: James Montgomery Boice
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 2005

Nehemiah was a great leader. According to James Montgomery Boice, Nehemiah's leadership abilities were born from his submission to God, his ability to focus on the right goals, his wisdom in handling complex situations, and his courage to act decisively. "But the most important thing about Nehemiah," says Boice, "is that he was a man of God, and because he was so close to God in prayer and personal piety, he was able to draw from God the wisdom, patience, skill, and perseverance he needed."

This insightful commentary follows a chosen leader through the great task of rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem 150 years after it was destroyed by King Nebuchadnezzar. Through analysis of eight dynamics of the Old Testament text, Boice explores all aspects of Nehemiah's work, from taking command to getting the work done, from dealing with oppression to dedicating the wall and establishing Jerusalem as a city under God.

Psalms Vol. 1: Psalms 1-41

Psalms Vol. 3: Psalms 107-150

  • Author: James Montgomery Boice
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 2005

"The psalms themselves speak so powerfully to the hurts, fears, disappointments, faith, hope, and spiritual aspirations of God's people."—James Montgomery Boice

Exploring Psalms 107-150, this third and final volume on the book of Psalms offers solid, practical, and well-illustrated expositions on God's nurturing, grace, comfort, and instruction.

Daniel

  • Author: James Montgomery Boice
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 2003

Through Daniel's visions and experiences as an exile in Babylon, the book of Daniel gives us a clearer understanding of history than any other part of the Bible.

At the same time, he shows us how to live for God in ungodly times—like our own.

Acts

  • Author: James Montgomery Boice
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 2005

"There's nothing today's church needs so much as to rediscover the doctrine, spirit, and commitments of the early Christian community," writes James Montgomery Boice.

The power the early church exhibited for changes and growth is overwhelming. Although it faced enormous obstacles--it was completely new, it taught truths that seemed unbelievable, and it suffered intense hatred and persecution-the church managed to spread across the early world within the lifetime of the first generation of believers.

In fifty chapters that progress through the book of Acts, Boice issues a challenge to believers to follow the first-century church. We are encouraged to glean the vital principles that enabled the early church to expand, and then apply them to our modern-day church. If we take time to study the expansion of the early church, we can spread the gospel the way it was spread during the first century-by the faithful preaching and teaching of the great truths of the Bible.

Romans Vol. 1: Justification by Faith

  • Author: James Montgomery Boice
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1991

"Christianity has been the most powerful, transforming force in human history," says James Montgomery Boice, "and the book of Romans is the most basic, most comprehensive statement of true Christianity."

Volume 1, Justification by Faith, discusses the full impact of justification by faith alone. Boice uses stories and hymns to present the thoughts of Paul in a poetic form and provides word studies based on the Greek text to add meaning and enrichment to Paul's words.

Romans Vol. 2: The Reign of Grace

  • Author: James Montgomery Boice
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1992

"Grace reigns," says James Montgomery Boice, "not because God is gracious to us no matter what we do, but because grace has created in us a genuinely godly walk."

Volume 2, The Reign of Grace, focuses on the sovereignty, grace, and holiness of God and on the need for holiness in believers. James Montgomery Boice discusses the full meaning of salvation, the problem with suffering, the struggles of sin, and the sustaining love God pours on his people.

Romans Vol. 3: God and History

  • Author: James Montgomery Boice
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1993

"No religion is stronger than its god," says James Montgomery Boice, "and in the case of Christianity, no Christians have ever been stronger than their knowledge of the true God and their desire to obey and glorify him." God and History asks what in the world is God doing to help Christians gain a better understanding of who he is? With life-empowering descriptions of God's sovereignty and purpose, James Montgomery Boice shows us a balanced view of predestination and other issues that sometimes trouble us.

Romans Vol. 4: The New Humanity

  • Author: James Montgomery Boice
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1995

"It is changed people who change everything," says James Montgomery Boice. "If you have been called to faith in Jesus Christ, you are part of the radically changed community, the new humanity."

Volume 4, The New Humanity, explores the life applications of theology Paul set out in the final four chapters of the book of Romans. Calling all Christians to renew their understanding of the great doctrines of Christianity, Boice shows how we can live by these teachings even today.

Ephesians

  • Author: James Montgomery Boice
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1988

According to James Montgomery Boice, Paul's great letter to the Ephesians is "a mini-course in theology, centered on the church." Writing to the church in a city much like modern-day New York, Paul laid out his mature vision of the Christian faith's central elements. The apostle set these fundamental doctrines in the context of the church as the body of Christ.

In this compelling commentary, Boice presents the message of Paul with great depth and clarity. The author proclaims the profound yet simple gospel once delivered to the church in Ephesus and effectively applies it to the modern church.

Philippians

  • Author: James Montgomery Boice
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 2000

"Philippians is so simple and at the same time so profound that is speaks profitably to Christians at every level of spiritual understanding, age, and maturity."

As James Montgomery Boice points out, no book in the Bible is so filled with joy as Philippians. Even though Paul faced possible execution for his faith, he managed to remain joyful in the midst of terrible circumstances.

Beyond providing encouragement, Philippians also contains a wealth of great themes. As Boice explains, it covers most of the major doctrines of the Christian faith and is at the same time extremely practical.

The Epistles of John

  • Author: James Montgomery Boice
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 2000

The three letters of John found near the end of the New Testament have a tendency to be oversimplified or simply overlooked in the study of the Scriptures. However, though these letters may on the surface seem less applicable to our time because they address heresies and church management issues that seem unique to the early church, careful study reveals just how contemporary these concerns are.

In this volume of James Montgomery Boice's popular commentary series, pastors, Bible students, and laypersons will find analysis of John's timeless messages of righteousness, truth, and love. Boice explains the meaning of the text verse by verse and subject by subject. Clear language and an approachable style make this commentary accessible and enlightening.
