In this third volume on Romans, God and History, the question what in the world God is doing to help Christian gain a better understanding of who he is addressed. 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. Boice discusses: The Potter and the Clay; Two Kinds of Righteousness; Heart Belief and Mouth Confessions; The Outstretched Hands of God; A Future for God's Ancient People.
The Boice Commentary series combines careful scholarship and clear communication in a verse-by-verse and section by section reading of various biblical texts. Combining thoughtful interpretation with contemporary insight for daily living, James Montgomery Boice explains the meaning of the text and relates the text's concerns to the church, Christianity, and the world in which we live. Whether used for devotions, preaching, or teaching, this authoritative and thought-provoking series will appeal to a wide range of readers, from serious Bible students to interested laypersons.
"Christianity has been the most powerful, transforming force in human history," says Boice. "And the book of Romans is the most basic, most comprehensive statement of true Christianity." This third volume in the Romans collection develops a Christian view of history.
