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'.

A good basic commentary on the first 5 chapters of the Revelation of John, which spends much time in the introduction and description of the seven churches of Asia.

Barclay's discussion of non-Biblical sources adds value to his discussion, but he also seems a bit too willing to interpret anything described by John regarding the seven cities in terms of the secular history of the city.

Overall, however, a very close reading and guide to Revelation 1-5. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0664241158, Paperback)

Dr. Barclay does more than clarify the meaning of the imagery. His commentary covers many interesting subjects, such as the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, the probable facts about John's exile on the island, and the meaning of Christ's knocking at the door.
