This book covers the events that accompanied the resurrection plus the major appearances of Christ after the resurrection, up to and including the ascension of Christ. At the end of the book are three appendages which list, in their chronological order, the various appearances of Christ between the resurrection and the ascension; a summary of the major evidences of the resurrection; plus a study of the resurrection calendar, especially the controversial issue about when Christ was crucified in regards to His rising the first day of the week.
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.
John G. 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. Having attended Tennessee Temple University and graduated from Cedarville University, he also authored the 27-volume Bible Biography Series, a 10-volume Study of the Savior series about Jesus Christ, and the 4-volume Butler's Daily Bible Reading set, a unique daily devotional focusing on expository Bible study. He is also a veteran of the United States Navy.
