Editorial Reviews

Review

'The only commentaries that I've used consistently are those written by William Barclay. They are absolutely fantastic and I wouldn't give up my set for anything.' (Steve ChalkeOasis Trust)

'The first volume in the Daily Study Bible was published in 1953, and the series became wildly popular. Barclay was an academic who read and thought very widely outside his own discipline - rare today, when everyone specialises so much. These updated commentaries are a mine of stories and illustrations.' (Mark Woods Christianity) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Barclay is one of the most insightful commentators of the New Testament. Written about 50 years ago, much of the background information and schalorship in his commentaries are outdated. Sometimes he stretched historical/cultural background too much to explain the text. Conservative readers should be aware that Barclay was a universalist (one who believes that all people will be saved ultimately). He does not believe in miracles and tries to explain them away in his commentaries on the Gospels. However, his comments on the relevance of the Bible can still be very valuable for discerning readers.

Advanced students would not need be told where to find more updated scholarship on NT Bible. Beginning students should get Tom Wright's "Luke For Everyone" or Trent Butler's volume on Luke in Holman New Testament Commentary series instead of Barclay's. Tom Wright's work is based on much more updated scholarship, and his writing style is very engaging. The volume on Luke in NIV Application Commentary series is written by Bock, one of the leading scholars on Luke. It provides excellent exegesis, though ironically, the application sections are not as strong. Mainline/liberal readers should check out the New Interpreter's Bible.

Though criticized by others in the scholarly guild for not producing enough "scholarly" papers/ books/ commentaries, Barclay is beloved by the average person in the pew because of the insightfulness of his prose. As a classicist he always offers just the right comment to help the reader understand, and appreciatively so, the text. There are other commentaries, more learned, more massive, perhaps more scholarly, but none with the real appreciation and insight from one who so loved God's Word as Barclay. We are the better for his having come our way, and continue to be in his debt for the incisiveness of his thoughts.

We are doing this book in my women's Bible Study, one chapter of Luke a week. It is being very well received by the ladies and someone comments each week on how much they like his commentary. It precipitates great discussions and we are all learning more each week.

While I would have preferred to have been able to purchase the 1975 edition of Luke this later one serves well. I got it on my Kindle because of my macular degeneration. (I can increase the front size.) It is difficult to tell the scripture passage from the commentary section because the same font is used and there is no marked separation. Barclay, in his editions, divided the selection out better than the Kindle edition. Another difficulty I encountered was attempting to quote a section of Barclay's comments onto my word document. I guess this doesn't work because the publisher and maybe Amazon don't want any part of it copied.

All of Barclay's commentaries in the Bible Study Series are great, a big help to the lay person teaching the Bible and to the busy pastor in sermon preparation. I know of one pastor who brought a Barclay commentary into the pulpit because he found a portion so enlightening.(He didn't hide it.) Barclay's studies are not meant to be a deeply-learned work but his ability to communicate to the reader is outstanding. The very fact that this series has continued to be so popular since it was first published in the 1950's should give the person considering the series a reason to purchase one of the books, such as Luke, or the entire series.

Luke and Acts, a part of one author's work in the Bible are outstanding in communicating the gospel and the beginning of the church. In Acts Barclay does an indepth article on the Holy Spirit's work at Pentecost and in the developing of the Church.

Our men's Bible study breakfast group has been using Barclay's New Study Bible commentary on Luke for some time now. As always Barclay's comments, though dated, are insightful. However the use of the New Revised Standard Version Anglicized Version of the Biblical text (Gospel of Luke) is a turn-off for us. One of the most frustrating examples is the text's use of the phrase "Look, you!" to translated what in English has normally been rendered simply "Behold!" I believe the word in Greek conveys a sense of God revealing what was previously hidden and in this version the phrase, "Look, you" comes off as an angry warning, as in "Look you, I'm not putting up with that!" It's a good example of England and American being one people divided by a common language.

I will finish this Bible study this Saturday. I have been using it this in our church Bible study group since Christmas. I truly recommend this for a Bible study group. It is easy to read and very informative. I just ordered the complete set last week. I can use it in my Sunday school class as well as Bible study.

Prof Barclay (U. of Scotland) is one of the foremost interpreters of the New Testament. Among the many commentaries I have used, Barclay's is by far the best.

With little editorializing, He makes the words of Our Lord come alive with historical facts, and his knowledge of Greek and Hebrew makes for rich interpretation.

For example, Jesus' words regarding salt, Matt. 5, salt in Jesus' time was one of the most precious commodities for it was a valuable preservative which lent life to food, as well as enhance taste, just as our lives are enhanced.

Throughout his commentaries, he gives rich important valuable historical background which makes Jesus' words just as worthy today as it was 'life' to many back in His time. Jesus really knew how to communicate, to relate.

Barclay has commentaries on each of the books of the New Testament, but Matthew is the only one/book/Gospel with two volumes, and most worthy.
