The Christ of the Empty Tomb

February 21, 2010

With Easter upon us, P&R has just released The Christ of the Empty Tomb, by the late James Montgomery Boice.  His wife, Linda Boice, wrote the forward, and includes an interesting little antidote about the relationship of Easter and Dr. Boice’s ministry:

In a special way Jim’s ministry was framed by Easter… Jim preached his first sermon as Tenth’s new pastor on Easter Sunday… On Easter Sunday [of 2000] he preached both morning services… and he was not able to preach Tenth’s pulpit again…. Jim’s ministry at Tenth began on Easter and ended on another Easter.  How gracious of the Lord to reassure us, through the promise of that heavenly timing, that death has been swallowed up in victory.
