Underscore Publishing is proud to announce the print release of Darin Michael Shaw’s debut Big Buts of the Bible: A Revealing Look at Jesus Christ. Big Buts has been a best-selling title in ebook distribution since the digital version released in October of 2012. We’re thrilled to offer readers a print version!

Big Buts of the Bible: A Revealing Look at Jesus Christ traces the 183 appearances of the conjunction but through the Gospel of Matthew, offering Bible readers a unique perspective on the scriptures. Here’s what people are saying:

“Warm and winsome and witty. There is a personal dynamic in this book that puts us in touch with the God who walked among us; who hugged children; who wept when a friend died; who drew close to lepers and sinners and wedding partiers. When we read a book we don’t want to just fill up our IQ (intelligence quotient), we want to fill up our EQ (emotional quotient) because it is the latter that will equip us to draw close to God and others.” -Dr. Joel Hunter, Senior Pastor of Northland, A Church Distributed and Spiritual Advisor to the President of the United States. An excerpt from the book’s Foreword.

“Looking at BUTs this way will forever change the way you read the Bible enlightening you to great truths. An unexpected side-effect is that, following the last page, you may also have a heightened awareness of the BUTs in your everyday reading and even casual conversations.” -Diann I. excerpt from review

“I would highly recommend this to anyone seeking a deeper understanding of, and relationship with, Jesus. WARNING: If you don’t like humor, don’t read this book!” -Alicia L. excerpt from review

“The author connected the dots in a way that I have never heard before. He made things very logical and used stories and comparisons to make things very clear and easily understood. I very much enjoyed that I did not need a dictionary of religious terms to understand this book.” -Ann K. excerpt from review

“A wonderful read. Darin Michael Shaw uses the word ‘but’ to show us a new way to learn about Jesus Christ. The humor and personal experiences involved in the text make it fun. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn more about Jesus, the Bible, or Christianity in general.” -Amanda S. excerpt from review
