Pentateuch

66375: Genesis, Volume 1Genesis 1-11
By James Montgomery Boice

This first volume in the three-volume series on the Book of Genesis shows how the story of redemption, essentially all of Scripture, has no significance apart from the story of creation and fall.

66387: Genesis, Volume 2Genesis 12-36
By James Montgomery Boice

In this commentary on Genesis 12-36, Boice traces the "new beginning" of God's plan of redemption, which arose out of God's relationship with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. By delving into the patriarchs' lives, Boice demonstrates how much they are like us and how easily we relate to them, both in triumphs and failures.


66395: Genesis, Volume 3Genesis 37-50
By James Montgomery Boice

By Philip Graham Ryken

So much can be learned about God through the accounts of His deliverance of the Israelites from Egypt, His many divine interventions for them, and His transformation of them into an independent nation. Ryken skillfully relates how the Israelites' deliverance from slavery anticipated the salvation accomplished in Jesus Christ, proving that God remembers His covenant and always delivers on His promises.

492166: Faithful God: An Exposition Of The Book Of RuthFaithful God
By Sinclair B. Ferguson

The book of Ruth contains far more about God than its size would suggest. It records the experiences of joy and sorrow; it tells a story of home life, romance and marriage, of unexpected conversion and radical consecration. A vital part of the biblical narrative of redemptive history is presented, focusing on the detailed preparation God made as he sovereignly directed history towards the coming of the Savior Jesus Christ.


66408: NehemiahNehemiah
By James Montgomery Boice

This insightful commentary follows a chosen leader through the great task of rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem 150 years after it was destroyed by King Nebuchadnezzar. Through analysis of eight dynamics of the Old Testament text, Boice explores all aspects of Nehemiah's work, from taking command to getting the work done, from dealing with oppression to dedicating the wall and establishing Jerusalem as a city under God.
