4.0 out of 5 stars a scholarly commentary, 29 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gospel of John: v. 1 (New Daily Study Bible) (Paperback)
This commentary has lived up to my expectations as have other William Barclay publications.
His knowledge and understanding of the Jewish and Greek cultures and language give rich meaning to a study of the Bible which is second to none. Having been exposed for many years to the cult-like teachings of a very narrow religion. it has enabled me to work out the truthful teachings of the Bible and has strenghened my faith now that I have extracated myself from a mind controlling organisation. I look forward to studying further commentaries in this series and have no hesitation in recommending this book to other serious bible students and others who desire a better understanding of God's Word.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clear and accessible, 27 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gospel of John: v. 1 (New Daily Study Bible) (Paperback)
This might not be the most sophisticated or the most detailed commentary on John, and sometimes one may disagree with the author's exposition of the gospel, but overall it is a honest, clear and accessible commentary. In a society where many have very vague and frequently unfounded ideas about what the gospels preach authoritative, scholarly commentaries are indispensable. Reading the original commentaries of Church Fathers without prior study may be challenging or even confusing; reading Barclay is much easier and it may prepare one for further study. I am looking forward to reading his commentaries on Matthew, Luke and Mark as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect as a study resource, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gospel of John: v. 1 (New Daily Study Bible) (Paperback)
I bought both Vol. 1 and Vol.2 of these Barclay study books in order to have coverage of the whole of the gospel of John. For me they were going to provide background knowledge and a commentary for a series of sermons based on John's Gospel. Their detail, reliability and practicality are perfect. They are designed for use as an undated daily Bible reading/study resource, but they work every bit as well simply as a commentary. William Barclay needs no introduction; he is a well known Bible scholar, writer and preacher with many grateful readers. The series covers the whole of the New Testament should they be wanted. These are excellent books and I recommend them.
