I was blessed 11 years ago by my Pastor and best friend, Pastor Zane Talley who handed me a book on Mathew from Dr. John Phillips. I prayed that the LORD would make me hungry for HIS WORD and, with Dr. John Phillips, I have become over weight! From Catholic to Baptist and 42 of his books later, I am more hungry then ever. I could never be more blessed then GOD allowing me to meet a man named Dr. John Phillips, I can still hear him say ( AND BLESSED FOR EVERMORE )
John Phillips was my stepfather, and the finest man I've ever known. It was both an honor and a privilege to have him in our family. He was the same man in private and in public, genuine, humble and kind. His lifetime of dedication to studying, and writing about God's Word in eloquent, understandable language is evident in the fascinating books he wrote, like one I'm currently reading, "Revelation."
The works of Dr. Phillips have been a great tool and resource for me, as I developed my expositional skills. His commentaries are unlike most others. Although they do not contain much of the "technical" materials that others do, his are so full of biblical depth that the text of the Scriptures come to life. He had a unique capability to uncover biblical "nuggets" that are so easily missed by others.
I count it a great privilege to have heard him and known him. I pray that the impact of his works will be felt for generations to come.
I use Dr. Phillips books before writing most sermons I preach!
Not only do I own almost his whole commentary collection, I have had the privilege of hearing him preach in person several times. One of the greatest expository sermon I've EVER heard was when he preached "Revelation In One Hour!"
It was live and ministry changing for me!
Dr. Phillips was a special friend to me, and his writings have greatly influenced my ministry through the years. I will always be grateful that I had the privilege to know him and benefit from his insight into the Word of God.
The sermon on “The Colt” was inspiring indeed---so full of insight and information and wrapped in life-challenging application that is so typical of Dr. Phillips’ writing. Oh how he blessed me personally every time he opened God’s Word!
I recently discovered your commentary series and I’m really enjoying it. I now own “Exploring People of the Old Testament” Volumes 1-3…and I look forward to studying much more of your material.
I wanted to send a note to say how very much I enjoyed your exposition of the great book of Romans. I teach Bible at Golden State Baptist College in Santa Clara, CA and am going to use it as our text supplement for this fall. …I especially like how you stay true to the doctrinal standards of the historic faith. I realize how your works have must have helped many.
I am a pastor and instructor at Carolina Bible Institute and Seminary. I have used your Exploring Commentaries for many years for research, Bible study, sermon preparation and as textbooks in the classroom. I tell my students, “If you want to become better expositors of the Scriptures, study the works of the great expositors like John Phillips.”
