40498: What Makes A Church EvangelicalWhat Makes A Church Evangelical
By James Montgomery Boice

Despite evangelicalism's strong truth-heritage, the spirit of the postmodern age is threatening the health of the church and the faith of many of God's people. Only a return to our theological roots--the Reformation--can keep the evangelical church standing strong.


9919: Foundations of the Christian FaithFoundations of the Christian Faith
By James Montgomery Boice

Foundations of the Christian Faith combines four of Boice's books into one volume. Book one deals with our sovereign God, the knowledge of God, the Word of God, the attributes of God, and God's creation. The second book examines God as redeemer, the fall of the human race, law and grace, the person of Christ, and the work of Christ. Book three is about our relationship or awakening to God, the Spirit of God, how God saves sinners, the life of the Christian, and the work of God. Finally, in book four, Boice looks at God and history, time, history, the church of God, secular and sacred cities, and the end of history. Truly a well-reasoned and coherent systematic theology. Boice brings his respected wisdom and insights together into a beautiful exposition of Christian doctrine.


42997: The Doctrines of GraceThe Doctrines of Grace
By James Montgomery Boice & Philip Graham Ryken

Evangelicalism desperately needs to return to the doctrines that once before reformed the world: radical depravity, unconditional election, particular redemption, efficacious grace and persevering grace. James Boice and Philip Ryken not only provide a compelling exposition on these doctrines of grace, but also look briefly at their historical impact. They leave no doubt that the church suffers when these foundational truths are neglected and that she must return to a Christianity that is practically minded, kind hearted, and most importantly, biblically based.


342373: The Gospel of GraceThe Gospel of Grace
By James Montgomery Boice

Asserting that many "born again" believers don't differ in their worldview from nonbelievers, Boice examines where Christians have strayed. He explores the church's need to return to foundational doctrines---Christ alone, Scripture alone, faith alone, grace alone, God's glory alone---and explains how these principles can shape a renewal in our hearts today.


46789: The Heart of the CrossThe Heart of the Cross
By Philip Graham Ryken & James Montgomery Boice

Jesus' words and work on the cross carry a message for each of us. A message of eternal life offered up freely. Of a perfect love with no end. Of a glorious hope attained at great cost. And of a divine power that exists beyond the limitations of all flesh. These devotional readings probe Christ's last earthly words and the biblical writers' words about the cross to reveal not only the meaning of Calvary but the heart of God. They will also give you a richer understanding of the amazing love that drove Jesus to the cross, conquering the powers of hell once and for all.
