Customer Reviews for Westminster John Knox Press Gospel of Luke

Westminster John Knox Press Gospel of Luke

This revised edition includes updated references and clarifications of meaning, so that the commentaries become even easier to understand. The volumes are completely reset in new type, so that reading them is easier on the eyes. Dr. Barclay's original style and popular appeal remain unsurpassed. He presents the results of contemporary scholarship to the ordinary reader, yet his method and his language are never academic, but always warm and human.

Barclay was an incredibly gifted writer. His work on the Gospel of Luke is no exception. The work is built upon solid scholarship, but is written in a popular style. The series is designed to provide easily accessible daily devotions. The aim was "to make the results of modern scholarship available to the non-technical reader..." Because of the vision of the series, Barclay's work should not used as a stand alone resource. But it definitely accomplishes what it sets out to do.
