Format: Paperback
Format makes for easy reading as Barclay preceeds each explanation with the actual scripture verse. This commentary is ideal for individual study, teaching, or together as Bible study group members.

If you desire to understand how Christianity begun, this volume is a must. I am collecting William Barclay's books on the New Testament. I especially like the 1975-76 publication. Incidentally, Barclay gives background information on the the life and times of the these apostles.

Barclay's commentaries are incredible--his knowledge of Greek as well his familiarity with the customs and traditions of the time resolve many questions.

This is typical Barclay. He is thorough in his treatment of Acts with interesting historical background and commentary. This is a slightly altered version of what he wrote in the 1970s, but the changes are somewhat cosmetic (gender inclusion), not tampering with content. If you like Barclay's other New Testament books in this series, you will also like this one.

I have found this to be a very good study book for a group. I am in a men's Bible study that meets weekly. We read through the commentary in short chunks, then discuss. Not everyone always agrees with Barclay, but he still stimulates thought.

I have to admit I have been a Barclay fan for many years. He takes Biblical scholarship out of the academic world and shares it with us lay people in an interesting fashion. He was one of a kind. Love those Anglicans.

This is the updated edition of the previous Bible Studies written by William Barclay who is Scottish. William Barclay was a Professor of Divinity and Biblical Criticism. Therefore, the content of this Bible Study is based on Protestant Theology. This is important to know for the Roman Catholics who are looking for a Concordance that has Roman Catholic theology. When this book was revises changes were made to make it easier to read. This book contains explanations about the passages Therefore, I think of it as a Concordance rather than a Bible Study.

The Barclay books are an excellent resource for those who teach Sunday School. They provide insights beyond what one often finds in the traditional study guides for lessons.

As an overall summation of Luke's Acts, this is one of the best. Barclay gives an in depth review and concise notes. Good for bible study groups.

I always like Barkley's commentaries. He gives some interesting sidelights on the text, and he isn't too scholarly--I'm not a seminary student!
