"We do not have a strong church today, nor do we have many strong Christians. We can trace it to an acute lack of sound spiritual knowledge. Why is the Church weak? Why are individual Christians weak? It is because they have allowed their minds to be conformed to the 'spirit of this age,' with its mechanistic, godless thinking...A weak god produces no strong men, nor does he deserve to be worshiped. A strong god, the God of the Bible, is a source of strength to those who know Him."

This scathing indictment of the church forms the foundation of James Montgomery Boice's classic Foundations of the Christian Faith, written to remind all of us of the very strong God that we worship and serve. Does it succeed? Indeed, it does. Christianity Today says of this book, "It would be difficult not to be helped by reading this fine material." The well-respected Boice has reminded us of the strong foundation that Christianity is built on, Jesus Christ.

This excellent version of Foundations of the Christian Faith combines four of Boice's books into one volume. Book one deals with our sovereign God, the knowledge of God, the Word of God, the attributes of God, and God's creation. The second book examines God as redeemer, the fall of the human race, law and grace, the person of Christ, and the work of Christ. Book three is about our relationship or awakening to God, the Spirit of God, how God saves sinners, the life of the Christian, and the work of God. Finally, in book four, Boice looks at God and history, time, history, the church of God, secular and sacred cities, and the end of history.

Truly a well-reasoned and coherent systematic theology. Boice brings his respected wisdom and insights together into a beautiful exposition of Christian doctrine, proving that a strong God begets strong people, people capable of continuing God's work in the world. Jesus told us to build our house on the rock, and Boice offers us a picture of God as the rock, the foundation, upon which all of history rests. His goal, in writing this book, was to help people know God better, and he succeeds, painting a vivid picture of the source of our strength.

Despite evangelicalism's strong truth-heritage, the spirit of the postmodern age is threatening the health of the church and the faith of many of God's people. Only a return to our theological roots--the Reformation--can keep the evangelical church standing strong.

Ordinary Men Called by God demonstrates how God develops the extraordinary from the ordinary as evidenced by the courage, faithfulness and humility seen in the lives of Abraham, Moses, and David. As God was at work in the lives of these men, God is still at work today. Boice observes, "Before God each of these men was great primarily because he humbled himself. In other words, he did not fear to bow low before God that thereafter he might stand tall before men. If each reader of this book could learn this lesson and practice it, the impact upon our homes, churches, businesses, and nation would be immeasurable."

In this study of the book of James, one of the most practical of the Bible books, Boice tackles key areas of conflict in the Christian's life. These include avoiding hypocrisy, guarding our tongues, using our wealth appropriately, keeping going when times are tough.
