Westminster John Knox Press The Gospel of Matthew, Volume 2: New Daily Study Bible [NDSB]

Ever question what may have been meant by the statement, "You are Peter and on this rock ...? Are you puzzled by the cursing of the fig tree by Jesus or by his comments about moving mountains? William Barclay discusses these and many other interesting matters in this second volume of the Gospel of Matthew. Readers will profit by the depth of scholarship, the honesty of appraisal, and the grace of style with which Dr. Barclay deals with difficult topics such as marriage and divorce or the danger of riches. With a lively translation and engaging commentary, Barclay's comments on the latter portion of Matthew's Gospel are great for daily readings.

The New Daily Study Bible allows a new generation to 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.

This is another of the prolific Barclay's many commentaries. The strength of his Matthew is the completeness of his take on each passage. This enables the reader to select among alternate perspectives. Some of these will obviously prove more useful and appealing to the reader than will others.
