The Epistles of John (Expositional Commentary)by James Montgomery Boice
Synopses & Reviews
The latest addition to Dr. Boice's popular expositional commentary series, The Epistles of John brings into focus three of John's major themes: righteousness, truth, and love. This commentary not only explains the meaning of the text verse by verse and section by section, but it relates the concerns of the text to the world, the church, and the realities of Christian life. Pastors, Bible students, and laypersons alike will find Boice's easy-to-read commentary an important tool for understanding the letters of the disciple whom Jesus loved.
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. Within these pages are important lessons on: -the essence of Christianity -assurance of salvation -identification of false teachings -proper treatment of God's servants -interaction between the church and the world -living a righteous life James Montgomery Boice (1938-2000) was senior pastor of Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was also president and cofounder of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, the parent organization of The Bible Study Hour, on which Boice was a speaker for more than thirty years.
A thorough expositional commentary on the epistles of John, bringing into focus three of his major themes: righteousness, truth, and love.
