JAMES MONTGOMERY BOICE
James Montgomery Boice (1938-2000)
was a leading Reformed theologian and Bible teacher, perhaps best known for his work on "The Bible Study Hour" radio program. He was also pastor of Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia and was chairman of the board of City Center Academy. He held a B.D. from Princeton Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Theology from the University of Basel in Switzerland. In addition to authoring numerous journal articles, he was a consulting editor for the Expositor's Bible Commentary. His more than 50 published books and commentaries include Foundations of the Faith, The Doctrines of Grace, Parables of Jesus, and an extensive set of Exegetical Commentaries covering nearly every book of the Bible.
The J. M. Boice Expository Collection (28 vols)—featuring the following valuable reference works (learn more):
Originally published during the 1980's, these commentaries were put together into a 27-volume set in 1999, shortly before Dr. Boice's death. It covers much of the New Testament and significant portions of the Old, including 3-volume sets on Genesis and the Psalms, 4 volumes on Romans, and his famous 5-volume commentary on the Gospel of John. Boice's clear language and approachable style make these commentaries accessible and enlightening for pastors, teachers and Bible students. His verse-by-verse and subject-by-subject explanations help readers make sense of the overall structure and intricate meaning of each book.
Originally published as a four-volume collection, this work provides a remarkably practical standard reference on all the major doctrines of Christianity. With scholarly rigor and a pastor's heart, Boice undertook the task of writing a new work with the goal of providing such a contemporary and highly readable overview of Christian theology. The 1986 one-volume Foundations of the Christian Faith represents the first major revision of this remarkably practical standard reference on Christian doctrine.
