Item description for The Letters to the Philippians, Colossians, and Thessalonians (The Daily Study Bible Series. -- Rev. ed) by William Barclay & John C. L. Gibson...
Overview Here, as in the other titles in this series, is Dr. Barclay's own translation of these important New Testament texts along with his enlightening commentary written by Paul in prison in Rome. The Letter to the Philippians is theologically concerned with the real identification of Jesus both with God and with humanity. The Letter to the Colossians combats heretical gnostic teachings, declaring that God did create the world and that his son, Jesus Christ, was his instrument in creation. The two letters to the Thessalonians show the apostle dealing with day-to-day problems of a strategic young church.

Great commentary Apr 3, 2007
The Barclay commentaries are solid information biblically, and in a small book package which is far easier to handle than most Bible commentaries.
Highly recommended Feb 16, 2004
Dr. William Barclay (1907-78), an ordained minister in the Church of Scotland and Glasgow University Professor, is largely remembered today for his seventeen-volume Daily Study Bible. This book is part of the revised edition, which came out in 1975, and uses the Revised Standard Edition of the Bible, rather than the Authorized (King James) Version. In this book, each of the three sections begins with a wonderful, in-depth introduction, which gives a wealth of background information on the city and church involved, along with an explanation of the issues involved in the letter. After that, the author launches into a verse-by-verse examination of the letter.
This is a great commentary on Philippians, Colossians and the two Thessalonian letters! His analyses are both exhaustive, and yet easily grasped by the lay reader. I bought this book to assist me in a Sunday school class that I was teaching, and it was one of the best purchases that I have ever made. I highly recommend this book.
Good book on the Good Book Mar 10, 1999
Barclay's book on The Letters to the Philippians, Colossians and Thessalonians is an excellent analysis of these books of the Bible.
Barclay provides an introduction to each book before proceeding to a line-by-line, verse-by-verse discussion of the text and its meaning.
The author has a very good understanding of the history and backround of these books and shows detailed knowledge of the language used by Paul. His commentary sheds light on the reasons for Paul's letters and clearly explains the specific guidance Paul was offering to these followers.
Finally, I liked the quotes and short stories Barclay tossed in with his analysis. It's a good book for Bible study. It's easy to read a little bit each day. It's also easy to spend a great deal of time reflecting on the most meaningful passages.
