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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scholarly Book by Scholar 6 July 2005
By Brian B. Carter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
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 Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
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 Excellent Information 10 July 2013
By Paul - Published on Amazon.com
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 Barclay is always insightful, always a joy to read 22 Oct 2014
By David E. Glidden - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fifty-five years ago, I remember my father using Barclay's Commentaries to prepare Bible studies and sermons. It was years before I learned for myself the joy of using Barclay's commentaries as part of my own studies, but I always include Barclay for my studies of New Testament books. I have all of his studies in printed versions--many almost 60 years old from my father's library--but I find using the Kindle version a real joy as I highlight and copy verses for further study and reflection. Barclay offers such depth of understanding, and great historical context, that helps me to grow in my understanding of the Word. The Book of Romans is a great study, and Barclay provides a great tool in that study.
5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for serious bible readers/students!! 20 July 2010
By Samir Varkey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book of Romans is one of those books that has an immense amount of wisdom, on all levels of one's walk with God.

This book so clearly expounds the it's tenets and is a must have for those who want to live the ways of God.

William Barclay is truly gifted in putting a very well written commentary about Romans (and many other books of the Bible).

May the Holy Spirit guide you always!
