This review is from: New Daily Study Bible - The Gospel of John (Volume 1) (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.
