Boasting: When We Boast Right, We Live Right, and We Bear Much Fruit to God's Honor
“Josh Moody takes us on a tour of the scriptures that speak about boasting. Building on the foundation of Paul’s teaching, especially in Romans but ranging through the two testaments he carefully shows us how the right kind of boasting is an excellent Christian virtue.”See All

“This book is a great combination of biblical exposition, historical insights and pastoral application. Christians need to grapple with this neglected but important theme of ‘boasting’, and Josh’s exploration of it will certainly help to shape our discipleship. I highly recommend it!”See All

“The intrusion of Christianity into the Roman world, a world built on a culture of ‘boasting’, had many consequences. In this volume of good gospel substance, Pastor Josh Moody helps us redirect our own propensity for the Roman ‘boast’ in ways that fuel a God–honoring life. I commend it to you.”See All

“A wonderful theme! This survey of boasting in the Bible warns us against arrogant pride. But we are also warned against spiritual timidity; we need to boast more in the Lord, and the blessings of salvation. Such rejoicing is the path to a healthy spiritual life, and a positive Christ–centred testimony.”See All

In a competitive and self-centred world, living a humble and God-centred life is incredibly challenging. Additionally, when the Bible tells us to 'boast in the hope of the glory of God' our worldly minds are confused. Isn't boasting something that Christians should avoid?
In response, Josh Moody studies Paul's intention in Romans 5:2 and aims to improve your understanding of it in an easily readable way.
Moody guides us through the positive and negative types of boasting presented in the Bible, and leads us to understand the impact of boasting on our lives: past, present and future.
On reading this book, we can understand that boasting biblically involves not only losing self, but gaining self as well in our rightly orientated positive force for what is best, beautiful and godly.
