The Life of Moses: God's First Deliverer of Israel
by James Montgomery Boice | P&R Publishing Co. (2018) | Hardcover
“Apart from Jesus Christ, no person in history has made as deep or lasting an impression on the world as Moses.”
So begins this study of the life of Moses—the renowned lawgiver, prophet, friend of God, and deliverer of his people. The events of his life, spanning four books of the Bible, resound throughout Scripture—and while our own lives may seem to pale in comparison, God wants to grow in us the same character traits that He used in the life of this “servant of God” (Rev. 15:3).
This epic undertaking, composed of never-before-published material from the late James M. Boice, delves fully into the narrative of Moses’ life, uncovering its rich meaning and its gospel application to our lives today. Dr. Boice captures the broad sweep of Israel’s captivity, deliverance, and wanderings, defends the Bible’s historical reliability, and offers wise pastoral advice on many practical topics.
Demonstrating what we can learn from their successes and strengths as well as their sins and failures, Boice also leads us to look beyond Moses and the Israelites to the awesome power of their God and the much needed, final Deliverer of His people to come.
