Money and wealth were as much an obsession in Biblical times as they are today, be it taxes, overturning tables in the temple, passing through the eyes of needles or forty pieces of silver, we all think we are familiar with what the Bible has to say on the subject. But it's just not that simple. Barclay's translations shed new light on the real meanings behind these oft-told stories and his contextual, cultural and historical observations get right beneath the skin of the people represented. This book is part of a fantastic series and Insights Money has an inspiring Foreword by Sally Magnusson.
William Barclay (1907-1978) is known and loved by millions worldwide as one of the greatest Christian teachers of modern times. His insights into the New Testament, combined with his vibrant writing style, have delighted and enlightened readers of all ages for over half a century. He served for most of his life as Professor of Divinity at the University of Glasgow, and wrote more than fifty books--most of which are still in print today.
