William Barclay is probably the greatest expositor of the New Testament in Britain today. Crucified and Crowned is a sequel to The Mind of Jesus and deals with the events of Holy Week leading to the Cross, the Resurrection and the Ascension. His method is to describe the events given in the Gospels, with frequent illuminating explanations from the Greek and from the social customs of the times, followed by exposition that is rich in its devotional and homiletic qualities . . . Here is the scholar and preacher at his best and he has given us a book that would make admirable reading for Holy Week, or any other time.' (Baptist Times). `This is a clear and authoritative biblical and theological discussion of the crucifixion journey, its tragedy and the triumph which follows in the resurrection and the ascension . . . William Barclay is one of the greatest Bible interpreters of our time, and this book is written with courage, wisdom and inspiration' (Congregational Monthly). Dr William Barclay, honoured now with the order. of Commander of the British Empire, is Professor of New Testament Language and Literature in the University of Glasgow.
