Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 066424100X, Paperback)

Dr. Barclay gives first the text for each day's study (in his own translation) and follows this with two or three pages of commentary. He has the happy faculty of making even the most seemingly unpromising passages fairly burst with meaning. Dr. Barclay's scholarship is so thorough and his style of writing so brisk that while he instructing the reader by what he says, he is also delighting the reader by the sheer charm with which he says it.

Though we find the Gospel of Matthew first in the New Testament, many scholars believe that the Gospel of Mark is older. Matthew then is often seen as an expansion of Mark, incorporating most of the content of Mark while also adding sections that contain the teachings of Jesus, such as the Sermon on the Mount, and stories about the birth and infancy of Jesus. The Gospel of Matthew presents Jesus as one who is "God with us" even until the end of time. For almost fifty years and for millions of readers, the Daily Study Bible commentaries have been the ideal help for both devotional and serious Bible study. Now, with the release of the New Daily Study Bible, a new generation will appreciate the wisdom of William Barclay. With clarification of less familiar illustrations and inclusion of more contemporary language, the New Daily Study Bible will continue to help individuals and groups discover what the message of the New Testament really means for their lives.… (more)
