John G. Butler’s Analytical Bible Expositor: Hebrews to Revelation are comprehensively organized, chapter-by-chapter and verse-by-verse commentaries. These invaluable works are much more accessible than typical commentaries, because they are free from heavy intellectual arguments and the difficult-to-understand language which is characteristic of many commentaries. The author treats each chapter of the Bible as a unit. From this starting point, he outlines the chapter and analyzes each verse. Expository in style, these commentaries present both the meaning and the message of the Scripture. The annotations of the text combine explanation with real-world application. This helpful series will be a valuable aid for both the preacher and teacher, helping them to understand the Scripture and providing a wealth of useful sermon and lesson outlines.
I know of no finer collection of resources than Butler’s. 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.
