A Time to Gather: Christian Meditations for the Year - a book of short meditations based on the liturgical calendar. Described in a review of Stimulus: The New Zealand Journal of Christian Thought and Practice as:
The personal piety evident in A Time To Gather is clear, but so too is Andrew’s broadening of the evangelical perspective, growth in God, through Jesus Christ, is understood to be our concrete indwelling in God’s life by participation in the sacraments and mission of the Body of Christ. In contrast to traditional, individualistic evangelicalism, A Time To Gather is written out of personal experience of corporate, participatory, worship that has real form and substance and out of the Christ-given imperative to personally engaged in holistic, cruciform mission in the world.
Walking the Emmaus Journey: Reflections for the Road – based on the story of the Emmaus Journey recorded in Luke 24, this book offers a series of meditations on the theme of walking with and discovering Christ on our own Emmaus journeys. Daystar magazine reviewed it, saying:
Butcher writes in a readable writing style with no padding…. While challenging and provocative at times (e.g. prayer is a seditious act, p 45) it is also dashed with humour (e.g. never have your God stuffed). I particularly enjoyed Butcher’s New Zealand “voice.”
Bring in the New Day: Discovering the Hope that is God is a book that surveys the scene of Scripture and identifies why the Christian’s hope is in God alone. The New Zealand Baptist in its review of this book, noted:
It deals with the experiences and reality of the world we live in but also offers a biblically-grounded explanation of what it means to have hope as a Christian even during times of despair. Each chapter explores the meaning of Christian hope – what it means to be a fallen human being, the hope that we have through the grace offered by Jesus Christ, God as our refuge and strength, the command to take up Christ’s cross, and the hope that greets each new day. Andrew is a writer who understands the importance of plain English and has written a book mercifully free of Christian cliches and jargon. At 120 pages long it’s not a long read, but a very satisfying one.
