Item description for The Letter to the Romans (Daily Study Bible Series.--Rev. ed) by William Barclay & John C. L. Gibson...
Overview THE LETTER TO THE ROMANS Dr. Barclay's fresh translation and clear exposition make Paul's very complicated letter to the church in Rome easier than ever to understand. Both in mood and in method Romans is entirely different from Paul's other writings. Here he is setting down in a systematic fashion the essence of his faith-bequeathing in a "theological last will and testament" the ideas which have most shaped Christian belief: the questions of righteousness, of the Jews as the Chosen People, and of how people of faith are to live their daily lives. Paul's deep meanings shine brilliantly here, thanks to Dr. Barclay's ability to explain the letter to the Romans to every reader.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Letter to the Romans (Daily Study Bible Series.--Rev. ed)?
William Barclay's Study Bible of Romans Mar 1, 2008
Good exegesis. The letter to the Romans is broken into small segments with commentary that can easily be read and reflected on in 20 minutes. Barclay is a good scholar with a pastor's heart. So he gives some good content and exegesis of the text and context, but directs the reader to application as well.
Barclay is still a theological icon Nov 22, 2007
Anything that William Barclay writes is a great addition to a spiritual library. His work on the New Testament Letters, the Lord's prayer, The Beatitudes, and especially the Parables are real treasures to seekers and learners.
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.
