For more than fifty years and for millions of readers around the world, the New Daily Study Bible commentaries have been the ideal help for both devotional and serious Bible study. William BarclayÆs brilliant communication, down-to-earth approach, and sheer enthusiasm have inspired generations of readers. These new editions contain a new foreword from renowned theologian and author Alister McGrath, along with updated language to clarify less familiar illustrations from the originals and the inclusion of more contemporary language.
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. With a lively translation and engaging commentary, Barclay's comments on the latter portion of Matthew's Gospel are great for daily readings.
