Editorial Reviews

Review

'Most devotional writing sits too light on the historical and critical facts. Barclay was one of the few who could at the same time distil the essence of scholarly findings with nourishment for the Christian way.' -- Richard Harries 'William Barclay writes with such an intelligent clarity and generosity.' -- Nick Baines --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

Millions of people, worldwide, love William Barclay's endlessly fascinating ability to break down the barriers to the ancient past. People are inspired and thrilled by a truly great writer who enriches our appreciation of the New Testament. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

24 of 26 people found the following review helpful By Michael Strassberg on December 2, 2001
Format: Hardcover
I have tried to read the Gospels several times, and had always come away dissatisfied, feeling that I was missing the true meaning. This book (and part two) solved that problem for me. Barclay takes anywhere from one to several verses at a time and discusses them in the contexts of the time they were written, the prevailing religious thought, and their admittedly proseletizing purpose. He demonstrates how Matthew took ideas from the Hebrew Scriptures and showed that they predicted the coming of Christ. He also tells that many of these references were inappropriate, but because Matthew was intended for the Jews, this method was used. Beyond this, though, Barclay explains the meaning of the words and deeds of Christ, making opaque parables and homilies clear and compelling. The love of Christ and his ministry to save mankind come alive in this book. Barclay elucidates the message of Christ in a powerful, heart-gripping and understandable way. I am a Jew, and recommend this book to people of any faith if they wish to understand Matthew.

I love all Barclay's books on the New Testament. He is well-versed in the customs and times which helps to understand more fully the meaning of the gospels, plus he has very good insights to nurtures as one reads the Holy Scriptures.
He is a definite addition for serious pursuers of the Christian Message.

Excellent study! I teach a Bible study group and this book has been invaluable. I recommend it to anyone that wants to do in-depth study. Both volumes are superior.

I am a long time devotee of Barclay and had to go to Israel for some Bible teaching assignments. i suspected that I might get some "surprise" lectures assigned to me, so I wanted to be protected. I took both volumes of Matthew (synoptic gospel) and both volumes of John and was covered. Sure enough, I had to do an extra topic and once again, "the preacher's (teacher's) Saturday night best friend" came through. Of course, the Kindle format made it even easier...this is a "no-brainer" for a teacher who does any amount of traveling.

I consider Barclay's commentaries on the Gospels to be both classic and insightful. They are an excellent tool to better understanding the Gospels.

What can I say, It's a Barclay. OK, Amazon is making me say more. It's a William A. Barclay. Good.
