Item description for The Gospel of Luke (The Daily Study Bible Series. -- Rev. ed) by William Barclay & John C. L. Gibson...
Overview THE GOSPEL OF LUKE "Somehow of all the Gospel writers," comments Dr. Barclay, "one would have liked to meet Luke best of all." Happily, Dr. Barclay's own literary and intellectual talents complement the marvelous appeal of the good physician, so that we may apprehend here, as perhaps never before, the unique, multifaceted excellence of "the loveliest book in the world." In so many areas, either minimized or neglected by the other writers, Luke reported fully and clearly for everyone.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Gospel of Luke (The Daily Study Bible Series. -- Rev. ed)?
Insightful, yet outdated Jul 7, 2006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 Written about 50 years ago, much of the background information and schalorship in his commentaries are outdated.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 "Luke For Everyone" or Trent Butler's volume on Luke in Holman New Testament Commentary series instead of Barclay's. Tom Wright's work is based on much more updated scholarship, and his writing style is very engaging. The volume on Luke in NIV Application Commentary series is written by Bock, one of the leading scholars on Luke. It provides excellent exegesis, though ironically, the application sections are not as strong. Mainline/liberal readers should check out the New Interpreter's Bible.
The Gospel of Luke by William Barclay Mar 18, 2006
We are doing this book in my women's Bible Study, one chapter of Luke a week. It is being very well received by the ladies and someone comments each week on how much they like his commentary. It precipitates great discussions and we are all learning more each week.
How Can You Not Gain Insight from Barclay Oct 29, 2005
Though criticized by others in the scholarly guild for not producing enough "scholarly" papers/ books/ commentaries, Barclay is beloved by the average person in the pew because of the insightfulness of his prose. As a classicist he always offers just the right comment to help the reader understand, and appreciatively so, the text. There are other commentaries, more learned, more massive, perhaps more scholarly, but none with the real appreciation and insight from one who so loved God's Word as Barclay. We are the better for his having come our way, and continue to be in his debt for the incisiveness of his thoughts.

Thank You! Great Seller, fast shipping. Perfect Condition! Will shop with again and again! :)
Filled with facinating trivia, history and background. May 3, 1998
I used this as my study while teaching the Gospel of Luke to a Sunday School Class. This commentary made my lessons fill with great background and history. The outlines are built into the book and ready to use as a template for a lesson. This is one of the best for teaching on a weekly basis or for preaching.
