While doing research in the library for a systematic theology paper at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2006, I stumbled across an old, battered volume of theology by a guy named Boyce. I was instantly hooked and read almost one-third of the book standing there in the library aisle (and stayed up all night to finish the rest of it that evening at home). I'd never heard of this guy, but he was so good that (I'm ashamed to say this) I was strongly tempted to keep the book and just pay the fine. I returned the book to the library, and then, in the providence of God, I found the title in the bookstore that afternoon.
Boyce's content is excellent, very logical in its layout, and almost deceptively simple (which serves to demonstrate his aptitude as a teacher). He is ruthlessly and exhaustively biblical, indicated not only by his brilliant theological insights, but by the scores of biblical references at the end of each point. He wrote for his students' sake, but the volume was highly praised upon its debut for its accessibility for the layman. It is a rich feast for the soul and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
A couple of points to consider, however: his chapter on creation was written in the context of scholars not having a sufficient response to evolution. It reflects that situation. Also, his argument for the atonement tracks right down the classic definite atonement trail, only to reach Dort's conclusion in the final paragraph (sufficient for all, efficient for the elect). So, while it is excellent, it is not without its issues.
A special note to Southern Baptists: you should read this volume (along with Dagg's Manual of Theology) to know the Scriptures better, and your theological heritage.
My review refers to the content itself, not necessarily this particular edition of Boyce.
