I consider Dr. Phillips a hero of the faith and rejoice to call him my friend. Everywhere I go I see the evidence of his incredible ministry…and hear from pastors who share what a blessing you are to their churches. There are untold thousands all over the country who say the same things.
Only eternity will reveal the impact of your writing and speaking.
Recently I was talking to missionaries and we were discussing who we like to read. We were all in agreement that our favorite author/commentator for the book of Psalms is John Phillips!
I always tell my Bible study class that I use Dr. Phillips’ books, and I recommend that they purchase them too. I have found his books to be a fantastic resource; it feels like they were written just for me!
I have enjoyed the opportunities I’ve had to hear you in person. The Lord has always used you to challenge and bless my heart. Thank you for the kind, generous gift of your work!
I will always treasure the fellowship, advice and mentoring I have received from John Phillips. He was such a friend to our church and to me personally.
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!
Dr. Phillips, I just wanted to write to say how much your life’s work has meant to me. Whenever I preach on any subject or book, I always check to see if you have written on that subject. You are a huge blessing to me.
I just finished reading the Epistle of Peter…as usual, I laid the book down with a refreshing sigh and wiped the tears from my eyes…I’m thankful that God gave Dr. Phillips the extraordinary ability to “see” and understand the Word as he studied it, and the ability to express what he saw in so eloquent a way…and for the Holy Spirit who gives me light to be able to take in, relish and apply those wonderful truths.
I have been reading “The View From Mt. Calvary” and I cannot begin to describe how it is impacting my life…I do not believe any other [book] has had such a profound effect on my life…I will read and reread it until our Lord comes. It is as if Dr. Phillips had the power to transport the reader to the very foot of Jesus’ cross to breathe and intensely experience what our Lord was doing for each and every one of us who is willing to feel it deep within our souls.
