Author John Butler is a gifted pastor and Bible scholar who quietly wrote this series for 13 years. Successfully combining biography with verse-by-verse commentary is a task hard enough to discourage most writers, but Butler accomplishes his result masterfully. On top of this, he alliterates everything in crisp and clear outlines. Alliteration is the kind of preaching that will target human hearts and stick in the mind for good. Butler’s thousands of alliterations read like poetry.
Verse-by-Verse, Perfect for Expository Preaching.
The closer we examine the Bible text, the more understanding we’ll receive. Butler helps us do this will skill and clarity, neatly enclosed in outlines. His teaching is solid, conservative, and Bible-based. While the books, because they are biographical, emphasize the practical truths of the text, they also teach much doctrine where that is part of the text of study.
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
From the experiences of Bible characters we can learn many helpful lessons in matters of faith, godly conduct, and Christian service. God could have given the Scriptures to us only in the form of a rule book. But instead He wisely included in the Scriptures instructive and exciting biographies of flesh and blood people to whom we can easily relate. The Bible Biography Series is a study of prominent Bible characters whose lives provide us with much important truth for every person, age, and culture.
As soon as we released this series, it became one of our bestsellers.
