Dr. John Phillips, a beloved preacher, theologian, author and speaker went home to be with the Lord July 25th. Dr. Phillips left an enduring legacy in the study and writing of his set of Old and New Testament commentaries. He was faithful to the Scriptures as he accurately divided the truth and was always practical in with his constructive comments. With his gentle probing applications to the Christian life one can tell he loved the Lord as well as His Word. And if you enjoy alliteration, so that your students or congregation can easily follow your Bible study or sermon, Dr. Phillips will be a big help to you. From his commentary on Exploring Ephesians look how he alliterates (Eph.1:7), (1). Redemption (1:7), (a) The Person Involved (1:7a), (b) The Price Involved (1:7b) (c) The Pardon Involved (1:7c). When I preach on Ephesians I always use Dr. Phillips commentary. You can learn how to own this 25 volume set at tremendous savings from Wordsearchbible .com.

Thanks Koheleth for making this distention. Yes there are two different J.B. Phillips.
I only noticed this thread recently and I just wanted to pay tribute to Dr Phillips. His commentaries have been a great help to me in my Christian life and he will be a sad loss to the Christian community.
Yes, this Dr. Phillips was a wonderful Bible teacher! He will be missed.
