Barclay's ‘The Daily Study Bible' has been cherished by millions throughout the world, and his style and popular appeal are renowned. His language and method are never academic, but always full of relevance to life and work today. He himself once said, 'I decided I must dedicate my life to making scholarship available for the layman, so that he may know better his Bible, his God and his Saviour'.

One of The Daily Study Bible books written by William Barclay. (I think there are seventeen.) I own and have read many of them. It's a good way to study the books of the New Testament. ( )

Barclay's commentary is a good middle of the road explanation of Revelation, following a roughly spiritual approach to the book. He does not make a whole lot of the various types of interpretations, however.

Barclay's strength is in describing the parallels with other books of the Bible along with Jewish apocryphal literature. It is full of such quotations throughout. As is consistent with such a focus, application takes a back seat to ascertaining meaning in OT/NT/apocryphal context.

Good to read in concert with other resources. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0664241166, Paperback)

The Revelation have to seized hold of the world's imagination what without them a good share of our best art would never have been created. Because so many of John's prophetic utterances relate to Rome, Dr. Barclay devotes many pages to describing the great city as it was under the early Caesars.
