Overview

In Studies of the Savior (10 vols.), John G. Butler dives head-first into the Bible to explore the life and lessons of Jesus Christ while providing verse-by-verse expository studies of the Scripture. All ten volumes are extensively organized and outlined in alliterated form, filled with Gospel lessons and practical applications of Scripture to everyday life, and written in easy to understand laymen's language. Unswayed by current trends and ideas in modern exegesis, Butler approaches his material with a steadfast and traditional perspective.

These books are very helpful to preachers in providing material for sermons and lessons plans. They also provide valuable instruction for the individual in his or her Bible study. Because of the organized structure of the Studies of the Savior (10 vols.), they are very adaptable to Sunday school classes and Bible study groups.

Praise for the Print Edition

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.
