The capture of low-energy protons by Be^7 is calculated using a single-particle model for the ground state of B^8. All the model parameters are determined from the experimental data for the reactions Li^7(n,n)Li^7 and Li^7(n,γ)Li^8. The calculated results for Be^7(p,γ)B^8 are in agreement with the experimental data that are available and permit an extrapolation to energies corresponding to stellar temperatures.
