Reading this commentary was like having a daily conversation with a deeply learned companion. Barclay's remarks are always insightful. Without being dogmatic, he brings Mark's prose alive. His understanding of the original Greek and of the customs and mores of the ancient world provides helpful context to the story. What a wonderful personal tutor! I now am reading his book on the letters to the Corinthians and will read the entire series.

Barclay wrote these commentaries a long time ago. Some of the research is a little dated and some of the references are no longer familiar. But they still bring the reader what they have always brought. They bring a brilliant, coherent, inspiring vision of what the New Testament writers meant and how their works fit together. Putting aside the nitpicking about details that fuels professional scholarship, Barclay's commentaries bring the ordinary person into contact with the New Testament authors in a very special way. This is abundantly true of the commentary on Mark. Barclay highlights for us of the urgency which drove the author and the graphic nature of his portrayal of events.

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."

Barclay's style is very easy to read. He makes reading the Gospel of Mark very interesting. Just reading about Jesus' miracles is good, but having Barclay to read alongside the miracle stories was fun! Planning on using it in my Bible Study class.

I find that William Barclay's "The Gospel of Mark" is an excelent book to learn more about what is the true meaning of what the Gospel of Mark is all about. It is fairly easy to read and it puts what is written into historical contexts. It let me know a lot more about what was going on during the life of Jesus Christ. so that I could understand the Gospel in much greater depth than I ever had before.
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.

Mark's Gospel is rich with the teachings of Peter, with some personal insight from Mark who was a boy in Jesus' last days. Barclay does a wonderful job of bringing us into Mark's Gospel and explaining the circumstances and meanings of Jesus' words and parables, without putting any personal spin on them. The English translations don't always do the Greek words justice, and Barclay helps develop the rich meanings of the Greek language we often lose in our translations. To read Barclay is to read Jesus as if He were here teaching us, which, really, He is.

50 years and this is still a great book in a great series. Unlike so many popular Christian books that become dated over time, William Barclay's Daily Study Bible just seems to get better. He has excellent historical material. He offers valuable insight that will apply to your life as we begin the third millenium. You will be glad you bought this book, or any of the others Barclay wrote in the New Testament Series.

What can you say about a man with a "first class" memory ? He is simply amazing with bringing out the love of Jesus. He extracts about as much from scripture as you could ever want,makes interesting connections that people all to much overlook by a quick read of the Bible.

Illuminating ! Broken down in a few lines of Scripture with commentary makes this easily digestable. Perfect for reading a short paragraph of Scripture with explanation that one can "think on and chew on" for a while. I have used William Barclay previously; he never disappoints.
