“Study of the Bible must be the consuming passion of a believer’s life.” So said James Montgomery Boice—and he practiced what he preached. Throughout the decades of his faithful church ministry, Boice devoted himself to the Word of God for the glory of God. This yearlong devotional selects from the fruit of his labor, distilling his teaching into 365 readings from Genesis to Revelation. A topical index and a Scripture index allow you to tailor your own reading plan.
In the spirit of Boice, the devotions are not moralistically superficial—intended to make you a better person. Instead they are intended to lead you every day to your only hope: Jesus Christ, the life-giving Living Water for your soul.
