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 201109 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

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 Written about 50 years ago, much of the background information and schalorship in his commentaries are outdated.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.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By John D. White on October 29, 2005
Format: Paperback
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.

I have used. Barclay space for many years for Bible study, teaching and pulpit exposition. I have said many times without Berkeley and the Holy Spirit I would not be able to preach at all. I probably have that in the reverse order a suspect would be much if the Holy Spirit didn't come first. So why the four stars. These commentaries are not the original commentaries as written by Dr. Barclay. They have been revised by a relative and commentary by other scholars that have not, so much, I changed the commentaries as they have cluttered them with other essential information. They are still excellent letter still worthy of a place in the library of any Bible student, Sunday school teacher or pastor.

I really enjoyed Barclay's commentary on Luke's gospel. His insight into the passage where a potential disciple says "let me first bury my father" alone was worth the price.

I bought the Kindle version, and it is well done. Navigation is easy and the book is formatted well for the Kindle.

Barkley gives in-depth comments on the Biblical text, without referring to erudite references or commentaries. He's very readable. In fact, he's my favorite commentator.
