This volume of The Daily Study Bible series will be especially welcomed because the four New Testament books included in it are too often neglected in favor of those which deal more directly with the development of doctrine. Actually, the two letters to Timothy and those to Titus and Philemon posses an interest that is quite unique to church people of today. I and II Timothy and Titus, which are known as the Pastoral Epistles, deal with extremely practical matters of church management and personal conduct: morals and decorum, the necessity for preserving the faith in all its purity, the combating of heresy, the place of women in the church, clothing, church organization and the functions of officers in church government, the proper handling of money. The little book of Philemon is the only private letter of Paul that we possess. It tells the romantic story of the runaway slave Onesimus, who as Dr. Barclay shows, may have become, some fifty years laer, the great bishop of Ephesus. As in other volumes of the series the passages are broken up into units for convenient daily reading, each unit consisting of translation and commentary. As his millions of readers know, Dr. Barclay is a remarkable writer, combining profound scholarship, mastery of New Testament Greek, wide acquaintance with secular literature upon which he draws freely, deep personal devotion, and a gracious informal style.

Review 1 for The Letters to Timothy, Titus, and Philemon, Revised Edition: New Daily Study Bible [NDSB]
I've used Dr. Barclay's New Testament commentaries as one of my most important and utilized Bible study aids. He thoroughly researched the N.T. for a lifetime, had a deep faith in God, and the Holy Spirit clearly provided him with a unique insight that benefits all of us. I'm gradually replacing my old Barclay's commentaries with the updated versions. They're as insightful and helpful as they ever were.
