For more than fifty years and for millions of readers around the world, the New Daily Study Bible commentaries have been the ideal help for both devotional and serious Bible study. William Barclay's brilliant communication, down-to-earth approach, and sheer enthusiasm have inspired generations of readers. These new editions contain a new foreword from renowned theologian and author Alister McGrath, along with updated language to clarify less familiar illustrations from the originals and the inclusion of more contemporary language.
In this volume, William Barclay discusses among other things the plan in Acts, Luke's skill as a historian, the accuracy of his sources, and the honesty with which he uses them. Full of unique insights and little-known information about the background of the early Church, this volume again displays Barclay's great ability for clear and perceptive expression.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Great insight, well informed and a great read.
This series is superb for exploring the manners, customs, and historical context of the New Testament. Barclay is easy to understand and very thorough when it comes to explaining the context of the Bible verses. He is a little weak in the gospel volumes when it comes to the virgin birth, but all the other info is top notch! This commentary series is an excellent companion the the John MacArthur New Testament commentaries as MacArthur goes into more detail concerning the actual greek terms. I have both sets of commentaries on my Nook which makes it the ultimate portable Bible Study library!
