Book Description

1 Aug 2010 New Daily Study Bible
In Romans 34, Paul distills the very essence of his faith and belief. He writes to the vanguard of the new Christian faith in the heart of the greatest empire the world had ever known. Paul understood the importance to Rome's fledgling church of a secure foundation from which to launch itself - and this letter was to be that foundation. William Barclay makes Paul's words relevant in today's world, showing us that we are not too different from the Romans to whom this letter was addressed nearly 2000 years ago.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Letter to the Romans (New Daily Study Bible) 15 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have always found Paul's letter to the Romans quite difficult to read as it is very theological. William Barclay's commentary is the clearest and most understandable I have so far come across. It also contains some very interesting background information. I would recommend it to anyone who finds this letter a challenge and would like more clarification.

No other person has explained the scriptures so clearly and so very readable at the same time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scholarly Book by Scholar 6 July 2005
By Brian B. Carter - Published on
Not sure what the previous reviewer meant- to me, any biblical commentary that includes discussion of the greek and hebrew words plus consideration of the historical/contemporary times of the writer is definitely scholarly.

That's just a weird comment!

Nonetheless, Barclay is an enigmatic figure, and any reading you do of his books must be tempered by your own doctrinal "take" on various issues.

I would agree in spirit of the other reviewer that this book is not an end-all-be-all, but what biblical commentary is?

3.0 out of 5 stars Not his best work 8 Oct 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
I have read and enjoyed so much of what dear William has published including his 17 New Testament Commentaries. Romans is not his best work.

William is so excellent at so many things: Providing the Jewish context behind the New Testament, explaining the motivations behind the various Epistles, as well as providing a treasury of literature to enrich the lessons.

In Romans, Barclay's worldview collides with Paul. When William brings his Arminian/Universalist point of view to Romans 8:28-30 things break down. His explanation of this fascinating passage is self-contradictory. It would have been more useful if he had given his take on it and then highlighted that other theologians such as Augustine, Aquinas and Luther had a different interpretation. William does this so well in some of his other commentaries, but not here.

William has great value, but take Romans with a grain of salt.

5.0 out of 5 stars This series a must-have for serious Bible students 5 Aug 2005
By Bette Dowdell - Published on
Barclay's New Daily Study Guide series is a treasure. Every student of the Bible should own--and use--a set. Barclay adds life to Bible stories by explaining the customs of the first century. He helps our understanding of the text by explaining word selection: The various meanings, where else in the New Testament the word was used, etc. When new characters enter the Bible text, he describes them fully. He goes outside the Bible for historical material that helps with understanding. My only quibble is that Barclay absolutely, positively does not believe in miracles, while I do--and have stories to tell that can't be explained any other way. So, I disagree strongly with Barclay about miracles, but this information-packed series is still very much worth buying and reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Information 10 July 2013
By Paul - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative book 18 Jun 2014
By Jeffrey W. Reich - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Barclay is a classic. He presents several verses at a time, and then reveals the context of those times and how that impacts what Paul wrote. Barclay also looks into the various meanings of the Greek words Paul chose to use, and tells us how those words impact what Paul was trying to say.
