"The more we study John, the more wealth arises out of it," says William Barclay about the Fourth Gospel. In this volume, the second of two on the book of John, Barclay helps give the reader a sharpened perception of the emphases of this Gospel. Written during a time when heresies abounded, the Gospel of John clarifies both the humanity and deity of Jesus Christ. Through his imaginative translation and insightful commentary, Barclay uncovers the unlimited riches of this beloved book.

For almost fifty years and for millions of readers, the Daily Study Bible commentaries have been the ideal help for both devotional and serious Bible study. Now, with the release of the New Daily Study Bible, a new generation will appreciate the wisdom of William Barclay. With clarification of less familiar illustrations and inclusion of more contemporary language, the New Daily Study Bible will continue to help individuals and groups discover what the message of the New Testament really means for their lives.

I have used Barclay's commentaries in the past and was very happy that I could download this copy as I wanted to use it to prepare for a Bible study. However, when I tried to get into it a week later, I was not able to figure out how to do this, so need additional instructions. Read full review
