'The first volume in the Daily Study Bible was published in 1953, and the series became wildly popular. Barclay was an academic who read and thought very widely outside his own discipline - rare today, when everyone specialises so much. These updated commentaries are a mine of stories and illustrations.' (Mark Woods Christianity) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Advanced students would not need be told where to find more updated scholarship on NT Bible. Beginning students should get Tom Wright's "Luke For Everyone" or Trent Butler's volume on Luke in Holman New Testament Commentary series instead of Barclay's. Tom Wright's work is based on much more updated scholarship, and his writing style is very engaging. The volume on Luke in NIV Application Commentary series is written by Bock, one of the leading scholars on Luke. It provides excellent exegesis, though ironically, the application sections are not as strong. Mainline/liberal readers should check out the New Interpreter's Bible.
All of Barclay's commentaries in the Bible Study Series are great, a big help to the lay person teaching the Bible and to the busy pastor in sermon preparation. I know of one pastor who brought a Barclay commentary into the pulpit because he found a portion so enlightening.(He didn't hide it.) Barclay's studies are not meant to be a deeply-learned work but his ability to communicate to the reader is outstanding. The very fact that this series has continued to be so popular since it was first published in the 1950's should give the person considering the series a reason to purchase one of the books, such as Luke, or the entire series.
Luke and Acts, a part of one author's work in the Bible are outstanding in communicating the gospel and the beginning of the church. In Acts Barclay does an indepth article on the Holy Spirit's work at Pentecost and in the developing of the Church.
With little editorializing, He makes the words of Our Lord come alive with historical facts, and his knowledge of Greek and Hebrew makes for rich interpretation.
For example, Jesus' words regarding salt, Matt. 5, salt in Jesus' time was one of the most precious commodities for it was a valuable preservative which lent life to food, as well as enhance taste, just as our lives are enhanced.
Throughout his commentaries, he gives rich important valuable historical background which makes Jesus' words just as worthy today as it was 'life' to many back in His time. Jesus really knew how to communicate, to relate.
Barclay has commentaries on each of the books of the New Testament, but Matthew is the only one/book/Gospel with two volumes, and most worthy.

As always Barclay brings a sound theological commentary to Luke's gospel. I like his down to earth way of writing and his knowledge of life at the time Jesus walked the earth.Published 1 month ago
