The Letters to the Galatians and the Ephesians: New Daily Study Bible.

I used this book in leading my men's Bible study group through Paul's letter's to the Philippians, Colossians and his two letters the Thessalonians. Barclay gives you a good background and walks through each verse telling you the meaning and the significance in Paul's time. I really thought this would be very dry but it was very helpful.

In this book, Barclay examines three very varied, but important, letters from Paul. Known as the Epistle of Joy, his letter to the Philippians is a letter of encouragement to his dearest of friends. In his letter to Colossians, Paul dedicates some of his highest thinking to the relatively insignificant town of Colosse and defends the Church there from a dangerous heresy; and Thessalonians, Paul reassures the Christians of this town, so vital in the emergence of Christianity as a world faith, and firm solutions to the day-to-day problems which arose in the new and. expanding Church

Read the Book of Colossians online. That Colossians is a genuine letter of Paul (1:1) is usually not disputed. Use highlighting, underlining, and take notes while you study the Bible. This summary of the book of Colossians provides information about the title, author(s), date of writing, chronology, theme, theology, outline, a brief overview, and the chapters of the Book of Colossians. Author, Date and Place of Writing. In the early church, all who speak on the subject of authorship ascribe it to Paul. In the 19th century, however, some thought that the heresy refuted in ch. 2 was second-century Gnosticism. But a careful analysis of ch.

Here, as in the other titles in this series, is Dr. Barclay's own translation of the day's study together with his enlightening commentary. Written by Paul in prison at Rome, the letter to the Philippians is theologically concerned with the real identification of Jesus both with God and with humanity. The letter to the Colossians combats heretical Gnostic teachings, declaring that God did create the world and that his Son, Jesus Christ, was his instrument in creation. The two letters to the Thessalonians show the apostle dealing with day to day problems of a stragtegic young city church.

I have been struggling with my Christianity and my understanding of the Bible for several years. Not that I questioned my Christianity so much as that I realized I really didn't know that much about it. I had, over the years, purchased most of Barclay's Daily Bible Studies series and decided to begin an in depth study of the Bible. I purchased The Letter to the Hebrews as a Kindle book so I could study away from home without having to carry several books, including my Bible. The Letter to the Hebrews, as with all of Barclay's other studies, is incredible. I've just started reading a chapter from the Bible and then reading Barclay's analysis. I take my time doing this in order to meditate on what I've read. It's a wonderful experience. I find my understanding of the Bible growing and my faith increasing. I have other commentaries on the Bible, some that are fairly new, but Barclay's are my preference.

Barclay's writing is indicative of his own comments in regard to Colossians 4:6, where he states that "Christians must commend their message with the charm and the wit which were in Jesus himself. There is too much of the Christianity which stodgily depresses people and too little of the Christianity which sparkles with life" (195). This fascinating little commentary covers Philippians (102 pages), Colossians (102 pages), and 1 & 2 Thessalonians (51 pages). The reader should expect a paragraph (average of about 4-6 verses) followed by roughly a page or two of explanation and application. No knowledge of ancient languages is presumed. The only strained application seems to be the pressing of the Gnostic view of the heresy in the book, albeit a very common view of Barclay's day (cf. 112-115; 132-134; 157; 167-170).

Throughout the commentary, Barclay time and time again makes impressive applications driven directly from the text at hand. The applications are all fresh and easy to be understood. Barclay's ability to turn a phrase and illustrate with ease is evident throughout the little work. Overall, the theology is not overtly bizarre. In contrast to the fact that Barclay is often considered a quintessential liberal (holding to positions that most evangelical Christians would firmly oppose), his writing holds little resemblance to the extreme views that he held. For example, Barclay did not follow some of his era in attributing Colossians to another writer than Paul. Rather, he notes that "we need not hesitate to accept Colossians as a letter written by Paul." It seems to this reviewer that Barclay was more willing to admit points of weakness in his own theology than one may be willing to give him credit for. For example, regarding baptism, Barclay points away from his own paedobaptist tradition for the immersionist credobaptist position as the historical approach to baptism (162)!

There are a few points of liberal theology that do raise their heads in the book. First, in regard to the deity of Christ, Barclay walks all the way up to the line of saying that Christ was God, but does not cross that line. Second, the writer seems to discourage a substitutionary atonement in favor of what could be considered something of an example theory of the atonement (142-143). Last, he does make a quick shot at "rigid orthodoxy" (153). In spite of these comments, the notes on Colossians are of the highest caliber.

This book is for any believer who wants to gain a more practical insight into these books. Each unit will only take about 10-15 minutes to read and consider, and this reviewer would recommend it as an excellent daily devotional on the Scripture in question. It will not disappoint.

Fifty-five years ago, I remember my father using Barclay's Commentaries to prepare Bible studies and sermons. It was years before I learned for myself the joy of using Barclay's commentaries as part of my own studies, but I always include Barclay for my studies of New Testament books. I have all of his studies in printed versions--many almost 60 years old from my father's library--but I find using the Kindle version a real joy as I highlight and copy verses for further study and reflection. Barclay offers such depth of understanding, and great historical context, that helps me to grow in my understanding of the Word. The Book of Romans is a great study, and Barclay provides a great tool in that study.

William Barclay has studied history and languages and customs of many different cultures. Therefore, he can explain some of the illustrations that in our modern world we don't understand. He seems to be fluent in Greek and Hebrew so he can explain the meanings of words from their original language. To me, he is quite engaging in his writing and I find myself reading the study guide like I would a novel. I forget that I am "studying." He gives several different views that can be taken from translating and then tells which one he prefers or thinks is the closest to the original meaning. He usually gives a geography lesson, too, so that the reader may get a grasp as to the environment.

Have the older edition of this commentary. Got this one to see if I'd like it. A nice improvement!

I count on Wm Barkley's work for Bible clarity, I've never been disappointed

This is from an old version of the Daily Bible Study Series from the 1950's. Some of the newer books may have updated information. Like all the books by Barclay this one not only gives a good commentary on the text itself, but he also adds a lot of historical and cultural odds and ends that can help liven up a Bible class. Even in areas where you may not agree with Barclay's theology on certain points, you will likely find something of interest in his writing. His writing style is very readable for us ordinary folk, not overly academic.
I love William Barclay's study guides, but this is my least favorite so far (I've used 8-10 of them). It is a let down. It is weaker on helps from the original languages, has less on cultural background, and shallower in its perspective on the meaning of the book. Normally, Barclay is a go-to commentary and I use others to supplement the clear understanding that he gives, but this time I am using Guthrie's commentary as my first read.
