Reading this commentary was like having a daily conversation with a deeply learned companion. Barclay's remarks are always insightful. Without being dogmatic, he brings Mark's prose alive. His understanding of the original Greek and of the customs and mores of the ancient world provides helpful context to the story. What a wonderful personal tutor! I now am reading his book on the letters to the Corinthians and will read the entire series.

Barclay's style is very easy to read. He makes reading the Gospel of Mark very interesting. Just reading about Jesus' miracles is good, but having Barclay to read alongside the miracle stories was fun! Planning on using it in my Bible Study class.

Format: Paperback
Mark's Gospel is rich with the teachings of Peter, with some personal insight from Mark who was a boy in Jesus' last days. Barclay does a wonderful job of bringing us into Mark's Gospel and explaining the circumstances and meanings of Jesus' words and parables, without putting any personal spin on them. The English translations don't always do the Greek words justice, and Barclay helps develop the rich meanings of the Greek language we often lose in our translations. To read Barclay is to read Jesus as if He were here teaching us, which, really, He is.

Format: Paperback
I find that William Barclay's "The Gospel of Mark" is an excelent book to learn more about what is the true meaning of what the Gospel of Mark is all about. It is fairly easy to read and it puts what is written into historical contexts. It let me know a lot more about what was going on during the life of Jesus Christ. so that I could understand the Gospel in much greater depth than I ever had before.
I would greatly recommend this book for use as a suppliment to the Bible for study groups or individual study of the Scriptures. I also think that this book is good for both a historical and/or a theological study of the life of Jesus Christ. It really helps to make sense of what Mark had to say by reviewing what the people knew and thought during the time that Jesus was among them so that we could view the Gospel from that perspective as well as what it means to us today.
I think that every Christian will find that they will learn a great deal from this book. As a Christian I feel that this book should be on everyone's must read list.

14 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Ha Ha Ha on July 7, 2006
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 "Mark For Everyone" instead of Barclay's. The volume on Mark in NIV Application Commentary series by David Garland is an excellent choice for slightly more advanced students. Mainline/liberal students should try New Interpreter's Bible.

50 years and this is still a great book in a great series. Unlike so many popular Christian books that become dated over time, William Barclay's Daily Study Bible just seems to get better. He has excellent historical material. He offers valuable insight that will apply to your life as we begin the third millenium. You will be glad you bought this book, or any of the others Barclay wrote in the New Testament Series.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By B. Mullins on June 23, 2009
Format: Paperback
This is a great book if you want to understand and know the Bible better. The author is very well educated and expounds each verse. It is no-nonsense and intellectual, but still very applicable to our lives today. My husband and I are reading it together and discussing it chapter by chapter, but it's not a typical contemporary study, with fill in the blanks and thought questions (which my husband can't stand). I highly recommend it if you want to understand the Bible more deeply and fully. Start with Mark, then decide from there. The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because some people might find it a bit tedious. I did at first, but now I'm hooked.

Barclay wrote these commentaries a long time ago. Some of the research is a little dated and some of the references are no longer familiar. But they still bring the reader what they have always brought. They bring a brilliant, coherent, inspiring vision of what the New Testament writers meant and how their works fit together. Putting aside the nitpicking about details that fuels professional scholarship, Barclay's commentaries bring the ordinary person into contact with the New Testament authors in a very special way. This is abundantly true of the commentary on Mark. Barclay highlights for us of the urgency which drove the author and the graphic nature of his portrayal of events.

This re-editing of the original removes or alters a fair amount of material which made the volume seem more dated than it really is. The views of an earlier generation about gender roles and other cultural prejudices have been minimized. When I heard about the project, I feared for the literary integrity of Barclay's work, but, actually, the commentary on Mark has benefited from tighter editing and reads even more smoothly than it did before. Comparing it to the original, which I also have on my shelf, I find that I definitely prefer the new edition.

So, five stars and three cheers for a new edition which even earns the label, "improved."
