In a competitive and selfcentred world, living a humble and Godcentred life is incredibly challenging. Additionally, when the Bible tells us to boast in the hope of the glory of God our worldly minds are confused. Isnt boasting something that Christians should avoid?
In response, Josh Moody studies Pauls intention in Romans 5:2 and aims to improve your understanding of it in an easily readable way.
Moody guides us through the positive and negative types of boasting presented in the Bible, and leads us to understand the impact of boasting on our lives: past, present and future.
On reading this book, we can understand that boasting biblically involves not only losing self, but gaining self as well in our rightly orientated positive force for what is best, beautiful and godly.
The intrusion of Christianity into the Roman world, a world built on a culture of boasting, had many consequences. In this volume of good gospel substance, Pastor Josh Moody helps us redirect our own propensity for the Roman boast in ways that fuel a Godhonoring life. I commend it to you.
A wonderful theme! This survey of boasting in the Bible warns us against arrogant pride. But we are also warned against spiritual timidity; we need to boast more in the Lord, and the blessings of salvation. Such rejoicing is the path to a healthy spiritual life, and a positive Christcentred testimony.
In Boasting, Josh Moody has taken his pastors heart and biblically grounded insight and given the church an important and needed study of a misunderstood and neglected teaching. I pray that this book will be widely read and that God will get more of the glory, worship, and trust He deserves because of it.
This book is a great combination of biblical exposition, historical insights and pastoral application. Christians need to grapple with this neglected but important theme of boasting, and Joshs exploration of it will certainly help to shape our discipleship. I highly recommend it!
Josh Moody takes us on a tour of the scriptures that speak about boasting. Building on the foundation of Pauls teaching, especially in Romans but ranging through the two testaments he carefully shows us how the right kind of boasting is an excellent Christian virtue.
