Christians belong to God’s kingdom but live in earthly realms that celebrate radically different loves and priorities. A gifted preacher and respected expositor of God’s Word, James Montgomery Boice highlights the dangers we face—dangers familiar to God’s people throughout the millennia—while offering practical, biblical wisdom and comfort for our sojourn.

This is a revised and updated edition of James Boice's 1996 work by the same title.


“Grounded in solid biblical exposition and informed by Augustine’s classic City of God, James Boice provides a transforming vision. We’ve never needed it more.”

—Michael Horton, Professor of Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California

Two Cities, Two Loves reads like it was written from today’s news media yet is also drawn from Augustine’s ancient wisdom. As evangelical confusion about God, government, and the church continues to divide, Boice speaks as a godly sage, urging pastors and leaders to thoughtful gospel influence in our secular society. I highly recommend it!”

—Steve Dewitt, Senior Pastor, Bethel Church, Indiana

“Followers of Christ need to know how to think and how to live in a world that looks more like Babylon than Jerusalem. This new edition of Two Cities, Two Loves by a hero of mine, James Boice, shows us how this can be done. Your heart, mind, and soul will be enriched and equipped for the battle we are called to fight until King Jesus comes again.”

—Danny Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Never has the need been greater for the message of this book to be heard than it is today. We must act now as salt and light in this decadent society. Read every line of this book, process its teaching, and stand strong in this fallen world.”

—Steven J. Lawson, President, OnePassion Ministries

“As relevant as it was when it was first published (maybe more so?), Two Cities, Two Loves will be profitable for Christians who desire to be ‘blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation.’ Read this book carefully, prayerfully, and with a will to take your part.”

—Mike Bullmore, Senior Pastor, CrossWay Community Church, Bristol, Wisconsin
