Format: Paperback
Not sure what the previous reviewer meant- to me, any biblical commentary that includes discussion of the greek and hebrew words plus consideration of the historical/contemporary times of the writer is definitely scholarly.

That's just a weird comment!

Nonetheless, Barclay is an enigmatic figure, and any reading you do of his books must be tempered by your own doctrinal "take" on various issues.

I would agree in spirit of the other reviewer that this book is not an end-all-be-all, but what biblical commentary is?

Format: Paperback
I have read and enjoyed so much of what dear William has published including his 17 New Testament Commentaries. Romans is not his best work.

William is so excellent at so many things: Providing the Jewish context behind the New Testament, explaining the motivations behind the various Epistles, as well as providing a treasury of literature to enrich the lessons.

In Romans, Barclay's worldview collides with Paul. When William brings his Arminian/Universalist point of view to Romans 8:28-30 things break down. His explanation of this fascinating passage is self-contradictory. It would have been more useful if he had given his take on it and then highlighted that other theologians such as Augustine, Aquinas and Luther had a different interpretation. William does this so well in some of his other commentaries, but not here.

William has great value, but take Romans with a grain of salt.

This is the updated edition of the previous Bible Studies written by William Barclay who is Scottish. William Barclay was a Professor of Divinity and Biblical Criticism. Therefore, the content of this Bible Study is based on Protestant Theology. This is important to know for the Roman Catholics who are looking for a Concordance that has Roman Catholic theology. When this book was revises changes were made to make it easier to read. This book contains explanations about the passages Therefore, I think of it as a Concordance rather than a Bible Study.

Fifty-five years ago, I remember my father using Barclay's Commentaries to prepare Bible studies and sermons. It was years before I learned for myself the joy of using Barclay's commentaries as part of my own studies, but I always include Barclay for my studies of New Testament books. I have all of his studies in printed versions--many almost 60 years old from my father's library--but I find using the Kindle version a real joy as I highlight and copy verses for further study and reflection. Barclay offers such depth of understanding, and great historical context, that helps me to grow in my understanding of the Word. The Book of Romans is a great study, and Barclay provides a great tool in that study.

The book of Romans is one of those books that has an immense amount of wisdom, on all levels of one's walk with God.

This book so clearly expounds the it's tenets and is a must have for those who want to live the ways of God.

William Barclay is truly gifted in putting a very well written commentary about Romans (and many other books of the Bible).

May the Holy Spirit guide you always!

Barclay is a classic. He presents several verses at a time, and then reveals the context of those times and how that impacts what Paul wrote. Barclay also looks into the various meanings of the Greek words Paul chose to use, and tells us how those words impact what Paul was trying to say.

My preacher recommended this book to me. It gives the history of what was happening not only with the apostle Paul but also with the community of Christians that Paul was addressing. There is good, accurate historical information here that is valuable in understanding the book of Romans.
