About the Author
John Phillips taught and wrote about the Bible for a lifetime. Born in Britain, he moved to Canada after World War II, where he founded and pastored a small church. Dr. Phillips later joined the staff of Moody Bible Institute where he served for twenty-five years.
Phillips served as the Assistant Director of the Moody Correspondence School and spoke regularly over the Moody network. He also taught in the Moody Evening Extension School. During those years he authored his first three books - Exploring the Scriptures, Exploring Romans, and Exploring Revelation.
He authored over fifty books, including a complete set of New Testament commentaries.
Dr. Phillips has the rare gift of bringing diverse Scripture passages together so that we see beautiful patterns in that Scripture, and as a result, better understand the big picture.
I've had the privilege of sharing in Bible Conferences with John Phillips and hearing him through the years. He led several Bible Conferences at Sherwood and was always well received. These books, available through Wordsearch are priceless. John Phillips was a favorite of men like Adrian Rogers. He has the ability to expand on and expound the Scriptures in a way that is beneficial to both layman and pastor.
No one analyzes the biblical text better than John Phillips. I have benefited greatly from his commentaries and recommend them heartily to pastors, teachers and Bible students everywhere

John Phillips writes with enthusiasm and clarity,... cutting through the confusion and heretical dangers associated with Bible interpretation.
If John Phillips were an artist, he would be numbered among the masters. Paper is his canvas, words are his oils, and the pen is his brush. With these instruments he has produced the Exploring commentaries and books. For more than twenty-five years, John Phillips' books have been my companions. As a busy pastor, I turn to them for instruction, illumination, illustration, and even alliteration - and I never go away disappointed!
