The New Testament
Westminster John Knox Press, 1999 - Religion - 579 pages
William Barclay's rendering of the New Testament, first published in 1969, continues to be one of the freshest and most readable translations available. It is here in the words of Holy Scripture, the inspiration behind Barclay's widely read Daily Study Bible series, that his brilliant skills as a scholar and communicator reach their zenith.Barclay's aim in this translation is twofold: to make the New Testament intelligible for those who are not scholars, and to make a translation that does not need a commentary to explain it. The enduring success of Barclay's translation suggests that both aims have been fully realized.
