The newest volume in the Analytical Bible Expositor series is a comprehensively organized, chapter-by-chapter, verse-by-verse commentary on Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 & 2 Thessalonians, 1 & 2 Timothy, Titus, and Philemon. This invaluable work is more accessible than many commentaries, because it avoids heavy intellectual arguments and difficult-to-understand language. Butler treats each chapter of the Bible as a unit. From this starting point, he outlines each chapter and analyzes each verse. Expository in style, this commentary presents both the meaning and the message of Scripture. The annotations of the text combine explanations with real-world application. This helpful commentary will be a valuable aid for both preachers and teachers, helping them to understand Scripture and providing a wealth of useful sermon and lesson outlines.
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.
