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.
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.
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."
