The Bible Biography Series is a series of twenty books written about Bible characters by John G. Butler. These books are expository studies of the Scripture. They are extensively organized and outlined, filled with Gospel lessons and practical applications of Scripture to every day life, written in easy to understand laymen's language, and theologically and morally they take a strong, old-fashioned, fundamentalist position which is increasingly unpopular but greatly needed in our day.
These books are very helpful to preachers in providing material for sermons and lessons on these Bible characters and texts. They will also be found to provide much instruction for the individual in his or her personal Bible study; and because of their organized structure, they are very adaptable to Sunday School classes and Bible study groups.
The twenty books of the Bible Biography Series consist of books on Joseph, Jonah, Elijah, Elisha, Gideon, Samson, John the Baptist, Peter, Abraham, Lot, Paul, Moses, Joshua, Samuel, David, Nehemiah, Jacob, Hezekiah, Mordecai, and Ruth. The author, a native of Iowa, is a long-time, fundamentalist, Baptist minister who has been teaching and preaching the Word of God for over forty-five years with nearly thirty-five years of pastoral experience. He held pastorates in Williamsburg, Ohio; Detroit, Michigan; Chicago, Illinois; and Clinton, Iowa. He is a veteran of the U.S. Navy, attended Tennessee Temple University and is a graduate of Cedarville University. He is also the author of the Studies of the Savior, a series of books about Jesus Christ.
