“1–2 Timothy and Titus” in ESV Expository Commentary
Designed to strengthen the global church with a widely accessible, theologically sound, and pastorally wise resource for understanding and applying the overarching storyline of the Bible, this commentary series features the full text of the ESV Bible passage by passage, with crisp and theologically rich exposition and application.

Transforming Homosexuality
Faithful Christians today agree that the Bible forbids homosexual behavior. But when it comes to underlying desires, the jury is out. Some Christians view homosexual desire as morally neutral, while others believe it calls for repentance and gospel renewal. Heath Lambert and Denny Burk argue for the latter view in this book.

What Is the Meaning of Sex?
This book argues that God’s glory is the ultimate purpose of sex and that all sexual morality must be measured by its ability to achieve that end. This book applies that thesis to a range of issues: the definition of marriage, homosexuality, singleness, divorce, pornography, and much more.

Articular Infinitives in the Greek of the New Testament
This book is a technical study on a particular point of Greek Grammar, the articular infinitive. It was published by Sheffield Phoenix Press in May 2006. Sheffield Phoenix Press is located in the Department of Biblical Studies at the University of Sheffield in England.

What makes each degree at Boyce College distinct?

Every student at Boyce, no matter their major, gets what is essentially a minor in Bible and Theology. They have the opportunity to go deep into the faith during their undergraduate studies.
