Reviews - What do customers think about Gospel Of John V1 (New Daily Study Bible)?
Commentary on the Gospel of John Feb 6, 2007
Gives excellent insight into John's Gospel through his eyes...after all, he was an eyewitness of the Lord's work. Barclay is an excellent source of information in each of his commentaries of the Holy Bible
Anti- Trinitarian dribble Jan 21, 2007
William Barclay blatently denies that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, the second person of the Trinity in his comments on John 1:1. If this fact alone doesn't prevent you from buying the book nothing will. You could do much better. D.A. Carson in the Pillar series is far superior.
Insightful, yet outdated Jul 7, 2006
Barclay is one of the most insightful commentators of the New Testament. Written about 50 years ago, much of the background information and schalorship in his commentaries are outdated. Sometimes he stretched historical/cultural background too much to explain the text. Conservative readers should be aware that Barclay was a universalist (one who believes that all people will be saved ultimately). He does not believe in miracles and tries to explain them away in his commentaries on the Gospels. However, his comments on the relevance of the Bible can still be very valuable for discerning readers.
Advanced students would not need be told where to find more updated scholarship on NT Bible. Beginning students should get Tom Wright's two-volume "John For Everyone" instead of Barclay's. The volume on John by Gary Burge in NIV Application Commentary series and Rodney Whitacre's volume in IVP New Testament Commentary series are both good choices for slightly more advanced readers. Conservative readers cannot go wrong to get Leon Morris' commentary on John in New International Commentary on the New Testament series.
Barclay's Commentary on the Book of John Mar 24, 2006
I first studied the Book of John by Barclay in the 80's and thought it was outstanding. Coming back to his new volumes, I am even more impressed with the depth and genuine grace-filled commentary he delivers. If you have a Bible Study or Sunday School class that is hungry to understand what John was trying to convey about Jesus, this is the best book you could find.
Barclay is insightful Mar 2, 2006
Barclay does a wonderful job of analyzing and adding more insight to the Gospel of John. His information is biblically accurate and highly recommend to anyone seeking more understanding.
