In Boasting, Josh Moody has taken his pastor’s heart and biblically grounded insight and given the church an important and needed study of a misunderstood and neglected teaching. … I pray that this book will be widely read and that God will get more of the glory, worship, and trust He deserves because of it.

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.

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.

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!

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.
