The Christmas story presented in the book of Luke is one of the most widely known and recounted Bible stories today. Butler presents a refreshing new look at this story and other detailed accounts of Christ's birth, death and resurrection with this thorough examination of Luke's writings. From the musical anthems of Mary and Elisabeth in Luke 1, to Jesus' glorious ascension, the text comes alive with in-depth analysis of the facts and events of Jesus' life, paying special attention to culture, setting and context. Butler's colloquial language and approach affords even the layperson a unique appreciation and perspective.

This [Analytical Bible Expositor series] is absolutely the best commentary series Logos could ever put into production...I have all of his other resources in print & they are absolutely vital to my Bible study. They are the most truthful, uncompromising gems I've ever read. After consulting the Bible text itself, my next step is always Butler.
