Baker The Boice Commentary Series: The Gospel of John, Volume 1, The Coming of the Light

Exploring chapters 1-4, this first volume on the Gospel of John is an insightful study and devotional guide for serious Bible students as well as interested laypersons. This commentary explores the coming of Jesus Christ and discusses the initial reaction some people had toward him. The Boice Commentary Series combines careful scholarship and clear communication in a verse-by-verse and section by section reading of various biblical texts. James Montgomery Boice, a former pastor, combines thoughtful interpretation with contemporary insight for daily living, and explains the meaning of the text and relates the text's concerns to the church, Christianity, and the world in which we live.

Everything I have read from Boice is wonderful. He is the best expositor of Scripture that I have come across in my studies of the Bible. Boice was truly a man who spent a lot of time studying the Bible in depth and in prayer. I highly recommend him to anyone.

I think this study guide is wonderful. I enjoyed it so much, I intend to continue with the next model. This book really got me thinking about some scriptures that I thought I had exhausted, I recommend it!

EXCELLENT! If you want a warm-and-cuddley god who loves you no matter what you do or believe, don't bother reading this book. However, if you are truly concerned about your soul and God's view of you as a sinner in need of a Savior, this commentary is a MUST READ!

Clearly a man who listens to the voice of God. While reading this commentary, I truly felt that I was in the very presence of God and it changed the way I looked at the book of John forever. Very easy reading, I cannot understand most commentaries, but this was clear and beautifully inspired writting.
