Item description for The Mind of Jesus by William Barclay...
Overview The Mind of Jesus seeks to convey a clear understanding of the personality of Jesus. Barclay strives to help the figure of Jesus become more alive to the reader so through understanding the reader will come to love Jesus more. The main body of material of this book is based on the first three Gospels of the New Testament. Barclay hopes that by showing what Jesus means to him, the reader will gain clearer insight into the work and meaning of Jesus.
Jesus suffered, doubted, hoped, feared, dreamed, wept, knew loneliness, planned, and built. William Barclay achieves in "The Mind of Jesus" his aim "to make the figure of Jesus more vividly alive, so that we may know him better and love him more." More than a study of the historical Jesus, this book radiates the author's devotion to him and breathes a real, compassionate understanding of the Christ who walked among and suffered for common humanity. Barclay's enthusiasm quickly draws the Jesus. Written in a vivid, immediate, almost conversational style, The "Mind of Jesus" conveys with fresh impact the complete humanity and perfect divintiy that evokes Barclay's -- and ultimately the reader's -- wholehearted devotion.

Rich in cultural scope... Apr 12, 2006
Barclay composites the wonderful understanding he has of both the historical and cultural environments of Jesus' days on earth.... and his profound faith, into a fine overview of the life and times of the Son of Man.
The Mind of Jesus Mar 10, 2006
Author, William Barclay, provides a background of scripture and the culture of the time. In that context, he tells what he believes Jesus was thinking. I appreciate the picture Barclay creates with the knowns of our New Testament scripture and the history and culture of the time and area. I admire and appreciate Barclay's courage in saying how he thinks Jesus felt and what he thought.
William Barclay at his best Feb 25, 2006
In this amazing book, Barclay covers every aspect of the life of Jesus. He follows the Gospels very closly and adds so many things that only a historian of imtimate knowledge of the times that Jesus lived in would know. His knowledge of the Greek and Hebrew that the Bible was written in adds to a greater knowledge of a more exact meaning of words that have been translated into English. A wonderful resourse book for anyone wanting to know who Jesus was and why he was sent to the world.
Scholarly wisdom for laity Nov 25, 2000
Dr. Barclay's Mind of Jesus is fantastic! Dr. Barclay explains complex and difficult teachings and themes in the Bible where anyone can understand them. Dr. Barclay can be trusted. His Daily Study Bible series is used the world over as a commentary. And to the "reader" from Albertville, AL: Dr. Barclay was not an Anglican/Episcopalian. He was an ordained minister in the Church of Scotland which is a Presbyterian body.
A first-rate book for anyone who wants to know about Jesus. Oct 14, 1998
Barclay has a problem with the virgin birth, and he seems to have explanations for some miracles. He is one of the best on understanding Jesus. His respect for Christ comes through in every page, as do his love and admiration for Jesus. I recommend this book, together with Richard Burridge's Four Gospels, One Jesus? to anyone who wants a basic study of these. My students agree.
