William Barclay style of writing made me feel at ease - as if I was listening to him speak about the passages of Matthew while sat in my living room with a glass of Scotch whiskey. I read it as a daily practice for reflection in depth on Matthew. It grounded me in the practical living of the Word. He certainly has a typical presbyterian view of the Gospel. I enjoyed his insights so much from this volume one: 1 that I immediately went on to the followon book. I look forward to reading more of his work in years to come.

Searching for a Matthew study guide/commentary on Matthew's gospel for my adult class, I decided on NT Wright's. Hemming and hawing as I usually do, I read a review that said, "This study guide is almost as good as William Barclay." That settled it! I have used Barclay's Daily Study Bible off and on for forty years. It is hard to beat. Readable, smart, inspiring, faith filled - you can't do better. Barclay was a man of faith, a man of extraordinary scholarship, a man with a gift from God to take the most esoteric scholarship and make it not only readable but enjoyable, a man with a pastor's heart, and a love of the Lord. I have some tapes of a Barclay speech where he says, "The Bible is a book about Jesus." People WANT to prepare for class when they have Barclay in front of them. My class loves it!

If you know the "old" Barclay, rest assured this update is even better!

Well written and informative. William Barclay's knowledge of the languages of the Bible (Aramaic, Greek, Hebrew) and of the culture Judaism in New Testament times brings new insights into understanding the Gospel of Matthew. I have found his analysis interesting to read and thought provoking. The large print edition is more expensive than the regular print, but most worthwhile because of my vision limitations.

What a truly remarkable book this is! I have long viewed the "Sermon on the Mount" delivered by Jesus and recorded in chapters 5 through 7 of the Gospel of Matthew as the most profound and beautiful words ever written. William Barclay's study adds new depths of meaning to those words by explaining the shades of meaning in the words as originally recorded in Greek. This is important because there is often only one English word that can be used for three different Greek meanings, and without knowing which meaning is correct, something is lost. Barclay also explains many of the Jewish customs and traditions and the mindset of the Pharisees and scribes who were frequently at odds with Jesus over the meanings of scripture. If you are a student of the Bible, and even if you are not, you will find this book to be fascinating!

Who determines that something is only a spiritual meaning and not what the text actually means...this guy has figured out that when he doesnt know what the text means, he just says its a spiritual meaning, that doesn't mean what it says.

Barclay's books on the Gospels and the letters of St. Paul are the best Scriptural exegeses in the English language. His comments include explanations of the New Testament Greek vocabulary and the Old testament Hebrew traditions that put many of Christ's words and teaching in their historical context. I have ordered all of Barclay's books available on Amazon. So far, I have obtained all of his books on the Gospels, but only those on St. Paul's Letters to the Hebrews and Romans. Perhaps Barclay did not comment on St. Paul's other letters; I m not sure.
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.
