Reviews - What do customers think about Gospel Of Mark (New Daily Study Bible )?
Insightful, yet outdated Jul 7, 2006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 Written about 50 years ago, much of the background information and schalorship in his commentaries are outdated.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 "Mark For Everyone" instead of Barclay's. The volume on Mark in NIV Application Commentary series by David Garland is an excellent choice for slightly more advanced students. Mainline/liberal students should try New Interpreter's Bible.
Good study guide Feb 17, 2006
Barclay's commentaries give a whole different perspective. Very challenging, but they ring true.
