Barclay delves into the personality and human-ness of Jesus presenting him as a person in a rich and wonderful way; a way in which we often neglect to see. The book is not so much a record of the historical Jesus as it is a look at the person Jesus. Barclay is also very careful to present Jesus as fully divine and does not focus solely on his being human, which would be a grave mistake. He presents the whole Jesus while reminding the reader that Jesus was an approachable, loving, caring, breathing, hurting, crying, wonderful person who indeed did experience every temptation which "is common to man, yet who was without sin."

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060604514, Paperback)

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.
