Item description for Letters To The Romans (New Daily Study Bible) by William Barclay...
Overview Both in mood and in method, Romans is an entirely different epistle that Paul's other writings. Instead of being concerned with immediate, practical problems, the apostle sets down in a systematic fashion the essence of his faith, handing down in a sense a "theological last will and testament." In ways that no other writing of the New Testament has achieved, the ideas expressed in the letter to the Romans have shaped formatively the whole of Christian belief. Barclay's fresh translation and clear exposition allows readers the chance to see the heart of Paul's gospel.

Reviews - What do customers think about Letters To The Romans (New Daily Study Bible)?
A deeper dive Aug 1, 2006
This is the perfect book for the student who wants more than just a basic commentary.
This series a must-have for serious Bible students Aug 5, 2005
Barclay's New Daily Study Guide series is a treasure. Every student of the Bible should own--and use--a set. Barclay adds life to Bible stories by explaining the customs of the first century. He helps our understanding of the text by explaining word selection: The various meanings, where else in the New Testament the word was used, etc. When new characters enter the Bible text, he describes them fully. He goes outside the Bible for historical material that helps with understanding. My only quibble is that Barclay absolutely, positively does not believe in miracles, while I do--and have stories to tell that can't be explained any other way. So, I disagree strongly with Barclay about miracles, but this information-packed series is still very much worth buying and reading.
Better resources available Jul 17, 2005
This is a classic study guide on Romans. Much better resources are now available today. Check out, for example, the commentaries by Osborne in IVP New Testament Commentary Series and Moo in NIV Application Commentary Series. Tom Wright has also written two volumes on Romans in his Paul for Everyone series.
Scholarly Book by Scholar Jul 6, 2005
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?
A Good Start Apr 7, 2000
This is helpful and informative, but is not a scholarly work. there are other more scholarly books available. i recommend this for bible study students, but not for theology students. more indepth books are available.
