Grace reigns," says James Montgomery Boice, "not because God is gracious to us no matter what we do, but because grace has created in us a genuinely godly walk."

Volume 2, The Reign of Grace, focuses on the sovereignty, grace, and holiness of God and on the need for holiness in believers. James Montgomery Boice discusses the full meaning of salvation, the problem with suffering, the struggles of sin, and the sustaining love God pours on his people. He also discusses:

"God's Purpose in Human Suffering" (5:3-5)
"Abounding Grace" (5:20)
"Whatever Became of Sin?" (7:13)
"The Greatest Chapter in the Bible" (8:1-39)
"The Inheritance of God's Saints" (8:17)
"Five Unanswerable Questions" (8:31-36)

This expositional commentary on one of the Bible's most popular books combines careful scholarship and clear communication in a verse-by-verse and section-by-section reading of the biblical text. Integrating thoughtful interpretation with contemporary insight for daily living, James Montgomery Boice explains the meaning of the text and relates the text's concerns to the church, Christianity, and the world in which we live.
