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.

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

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.

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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Pestle on June 11, 2011
Format: Paperback
This is not a scholarly exegesis. It is chatty in tone and is geared for use as life instructions for the modern reader, using Barclay's meditations on Acts as a starting point. That's fine in and of itself, as long as you know what you're ordering.

Barclay's meditations, however, are extremely slanted. He makes no distinction between historical fact, traditional interpretation, and his own thoughts. He frequently includes quotations, but does not state who he is quoting; if there were ever any references, they have not been included in this edition. He provides imaginative interpretations of the thoughts and motivation of Paul, Peter and the other persons in the book of Acts. He puts forth disputed theology and history as if it were plain fact: for instance, stating that the Jews "failed" to uphold the Covenant and were discarded by God and supplanted by the Christians, and that Simon the Magician, in chapter 8, was a charlatan whose trickery was believed by the superstitious Jews.

While these are both opinions with more than a few proponents, Barclay does poor service to the breadth of Christian scholarship when he ignores all other interpretations of the passages. The result is that the uninstructed audience for whom he is writing will come away misinformed.

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.

Barclay is one of my favorite Biblical Commentators. His comments are both informing and inspiring
