The Gospel of Matthew: Volume 2: The Triumph of the King, Matthew 18-28 (Expositional Commentary)by James Montgomery Boice
Synopses & Reviews
The Gospel of Matthew, said James Montgomery Boice, is the first of the gospels, the longest, the most Jewish, the most evangelistic, and, in many ways, the most compelling. To some people, now as well as then, Matthew is the most important book ever written. This two-volume expositional commentary on one of the Bible's most powerful books integrates rigorous scholarship and clear communication. Boice not only explains the meaning of the text verse by verse and section by section, he relates the text's concerns to the world in which we live, the life of the church, and the realities of the Christian life. Based on messages preached at Philadelphia's world-renowned Tenth Presbyterian Church, The Gospel of Matthew displays Dr. Boice's hallmark blend of thoughtful interpretation and contemporary insight for daily living. It will appeal to a wide range of readers, from serious Bible students to interested laypersons.
The Gospel of Matthew, says James Montgomery Boice, is "the first of the Gospels, the longest, the most Jewish, the most evangelistic, and, in many was, the most compelling." This two-volume expositional and inspirational commentary on the book of Matthew integrates rigorous scholarship and clear communication. It will inform and help a wide range of readers--from serious Bible students to interested laypersons--understand and apply the truths found in the text. Both volumes deal with Matthew's emphasis on Jesus as the Messiah or King of Israel.

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.
