Westminster John Knox Press The Letter to the Hebrews: New Daily Study Bible [NDSB]

At first glance, the letter to the Hebrews can seem difficult to comprehend, requiring readers to be familiar with an intricate system of Hebrew sacrifices so intimidating that some might just set the whole epistle aside. But William Barclay believed "that no New Testament book gives us such a glorious picture of Jesus Christ in all the splendor of his manhood and in all the majesty of his deity." So, amplified by his keen and vibrant commentary, this ancient letter emerges from apparent obscurity to be a vital resource of encouragement for Christians today.

I really love the way William Barclay explains things in laymen's terms and the history he gives with each verse.

This book, just like everything I have read by William Barclay, has shown me powerful new insights into the HolyLove of God, and how to personally apply the Bible into my life.

William Barcalay's commentaries are insightful and engaging, but Caveat Emptor! Please be aware the Barclay is not a Christian, he is a Unitarian who denies the Deity of Christ "Nowhere does the New Testament identify Jesus as God" (A Spiritual Biography, 1977 Edition, p. 56}. He also denies the Virgin Birth, substitutionary atonement, etc. I strongly suggest you read this with a grain of salt!

William Barclay gives deep insight and better understanding to what the Scriptures are teaching us. I like to read his books along with my Bible study.
