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.
—Dr. Franklin L. Kirksey, Pastor, Teacher, Mentor, Writer, Author of Sound Biblical Preaching: Giving the Bible a Voice
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.

Butler, originally from Iowa, has been a Baptist minister for over fifty years and a pastor for over thirty-five years with pastorates in Clinton, Iowa; Williamsburg, Ohio; Detroit, Michigan; and Chicago, Illinois.
