"Do you want peace?" asks James Montgomery Boice. "Are you willing to receive it at the point where Jesus indicated it may truly be found?"
This fourth volume on the Gospel of John calls us to the peace that can be found in Christ's love. Nowhere in the entire Bible can we walk on more holy ground as we listen to Christ's final discourses. Covering chapters 13-17, Boice discusses such topics as
"Love Letters from the Lord" (13:1)
"A Clue for Finding Happiness" (13:16-17)
"Gifts and Fruit" (14:16-18)
"God Glorified . . . in You" (15:8-11)
"No Strange Trial" (16:1-4)
"The Real Lord's Prayer" (17:1-5)
This expositional commentary on one of the Bible's most popular books combines careful scholarship and clear communication in a verse-by-verse and section-by-section reading of the biblical text. Integrating 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.
