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. "The Gospel of John," says Boice, "is a powerful source of instruction and comfort to many millions of God's people down through the ages of church history." This first volume in the Gospel of John collection deals with the coming of Jesus Christ into the world and with the initial reaction he had.
