Butler has organized this study on the subject of the incarnation of Jesus Christ into six major parts:
The Background of Christ—four studies on key texts of Scripture showing the identity of Christ as both God and man
The Birth of Christ—nine studies on all the major texts of Scripture which give details about the birth of Jesus Christ to Mary in which God was incarnated in the likeness of human flesh
The Boyhood of Christ—a study of the only text of Scripture which records the actions of Christ when He was a young boy
The Baptism of Christ—a study of this significant and often misunderstood event which commenced the public ministry of Christ
The Battle of Christ—four studies on the great temptation experience of Christ in which His identity as the Son of God was challenged very strongly by Satan
The Beautification of Christ—a study of the glorious transfiguration of Christ in which the glories of the Deity of Christ radiated forth from the Incarnated Christ for a small time during His ministry here on earth.
Highly organized structure
Perfect for preparing sermons and lesson plans
Great for use in Bible study groups and Sunday School classes
Praise for the Print Edition
John G. Butler, longtime pastor and Bible commentator, is to be commended for his affirmation, alliteration, and application of the biblical text. He provides a treasure chest of biblical truth for the teacher and preacher of the Word of God. I gladly recommend his writings.

I know of no finer collection of resources than Butler. No library is complete without these uncompromising gems of wisdom. After reading the Bible text itself, my next step is always to consult Butler. They are absolutely essential to my Bible study.
