Format: Paperback
Format makes for easy reading as Barclay preceeds each explanation with the actual scripture verse. This commentary is ideal for individual study, teaching, or together as Bible study group members.

If you desire to understand how Christianity begun, this volume is a must. I am collecting William Barclay's books on the New Testament. I especially like the 1975-76 publication. Incidentally, Barclay gives background information on the the life and times of the these apostles.

This is typical Barclay. He is thorough in his treatment of Acts with interesting historical background and commentary. This is a slightly altered version of what he wrote in the 1970s, but the changes are somewhat cosmetic (gender inclusion), not tampering with content. If you like Barclay's other New Testament books in this series, you will also like this one.

I have found this to be a very good study book for a group. I am in a men's Bible study that meets weekly. We read through the commentary in short chunks, then discuss. Not everyone always agrees with Barclay, but he still stimulates thought.

I have to admit I have been a Barclay fan for many years. He takes Biblical scholarship out of the academic world and shares it with us lay people in an interesting fashion. He was one of a kind. Love those Anglicans.

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.

Barclay's commentaries are incredible--his knowledge of Greek as well his familiarity with the customs and traditions of the time resolve many questions.

My husband and I got a lot out of this book. He especially liked the commentary after each section. We liked it so much that we are now reading the book of Romans by this author. We highly recommend this to anyone wanting to more understand this book. It made us feel as if we were there witnessing the events for ourselves.

Archbishop Fulton Sheen complimented Barclay by saying that he, Barclay, was far more of a Roman Catholic
Scripture scholar than many so-called Roman Catholic Scripture Scholars. My only regret is that Barclay knows so little of Church History. His quotes are, for the most part, post-reformational, as though Christ were absent from His Body, the Church, for the first 1,500 years. Christ clearly founded a church of Word and Sacrament. Barclay knows little of Sacramental Theology, ecclesiology, Tradition, Hagiography and, most of all, the centrality of the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. I could go on, but applaud what is stellar in Barclay. Father Kennedy

I purchased this because I am interested in older Bible commentaries. I have found them to be much more conservative than many of the modern commentaries.

Barclay is an excellent writer, who pulls no punches, yet delivers his commentary in a very conversational manner. Sometimes he differs with conventional Bible scholarship, but offers his rationale for it so you can decide for yourself. Recommended highly for any student of God's Word.
