Praise for William Burton

“Fr. Bill Burton's knowledge of Greek, Roman, and Jewish cultures, the very cultures in which Jesus lived and the New Testament was written, provides fresh and novel insights into our understanding of the sacred texts. For years, Bible Study participants have delighted in his accessible, eye-opening, and lively presentations!” – Albert Haase, O.F.M., bestselling author

“Fr. William Burton, O.F.M., is a talented and engaging teacher whose erudition and skill at bringing the Sacred Scriptures to life for his hearers is second to none. His lively delivery and obvious devotion to the Word of God make his presentations accessible and enjoyable for everyone, at whatever level of scholarship they may have attained.” – David J. Poirier, SA, Pastor, St. Joseph the Worker Parish, Archdiocese of Vancouver

“Father Burton is an excellent Scripture professor at our seminary; our students always find him engaging and insightful. I have also witnessed his teaching expertise as he delivers parish missions, and everyone walks away engaged and excited about the Word of God. I highly encourage those interested in learning more about the Bible to sit back and enjoy his knowledge of the Scriptures.”
– Msgr. David L. Toups, President, St. Vincent dePaul Regional

“Fr. Bill Burton has proven himself to be a careful biblical interpreter and a skilled teacher. This program on the Synoptic Gospels will give evidence of this to all those fortunate enough to benefit from it. It will be a fine addition to anyone’s library of biblical courses.”

    Fall Survey: October 2016

    It was just very informative.

    Kept our attention

    This CD brought the Eucharist and Bible readings into the light of truth as the speaker reviewed the important history surrounding favorite stories. He was clearly excited about his topic, and kept our attention as he connected the dots.

  3. Sister Rose Therese D., NY

    Winter Survey: January 2017

    The DVD “At the Table with Jesus” is one of the finest programs on the Eucharist that I have ever viewed! Father’s delivery, knowledge, sense of humor, clear presentation is one of the programs that I will continue to view and offer for study groups! I recommend this program to everyone who desires a deeper appreciation of the Eucharist! Thank you and God bless you for offering the best contemporary theological presenters and programs. The CD “Becoming the Eucharist we Celebrate” is also an excellent program on the Eucharist. Fr. Cosby’s presentation is extremely well delivered. It deepened my appreciation and knowledge of the culture and times that opened new visas and appreciation of the Great Sacrament of Love!

    Summer 2018 Survey

    Fr William Burton’s lectures on “At the table with Jesus* are full of interesting information that gives a good background and also new light on certain passages in the Gospel. I found it fascinating and enjoyed it so much that I bought another set to give to a friend so she can enjoy it too.
