Series: New Daily Study Bible
At first glance, the letter to the Hebrews can seem difficult to comprehend, but William Barclay believed that no New Testament book gives us such a glorious picture of Jesus Christ in all the splendor of his manhood and in all the majesty of his deity. So, amplified by Barclay's keen and vibrant commentary, this ancient letter emerges from apparent obscurity to be a vital resource of encouragement for Christians today. 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.

The Geeky Calvinist5 Stars Out Of 5A Great Devotional StudySeptember 23, 2017The Geeky CalvinistQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5William Barclay was a renowned pastor and Scholar in the early until the late 20th century. You wrote more than 50 Works yet his best-known work is none other than the daily Study Bible. These works are famous for being easy to read to the Layman yet possess enough theological wait to be useful for more than mere devotional reading. Barclays daily Study Bible series covers every book of the Bible and gives great practical insight into difficult to understand biblical passages.
Due to its longevity the daily Bible study commentaries have started to show their age, yet in a landmark move by Westminster John Knox publishing this Commentary series has been redesigned and revamped under the title the new daily Study Bible so that a new generation will be able to study Gods word under the tutelage of the great Pastor and Theologian William Barclay. In this new daily Study Bible there are a few important additions such as introductions by John Drane.
One of the volumes of this new daily Study Bible is Barclays commentary on the letter to the Hebrews. I have read many of William Barclay commentaries on various books of scripture and this commentary is one of the most thorough and sometimes even scholarly treatments of the book of Hebrews. While this commentary is primarily used a devotional study, for which it fulfills its primary purpose, it also possesses enough scholarly wait to being used by a pastor in sermon preparation.
While the introduction section of this commentary leaves much to be desired, it is only 13 pages in length, the insights provided in this introductory section are worth its weight in gold. Furthermore some of the illustrations and practical comments Barclay scatters throughout his commentary are very helpful to the pastor who is preaching exegetical e through the book of Hebrews. Lastly this version Bose and in large print edition which is very helpful to those of us, including myself, who has very poor eyesight, it will not only be helpful to those who are in an older generation to be able to see the text but those of us who have been visually impaired since birth to be able to read this Splendid commentary without enhanced visual stimulant. I highly recommend this commentary to laymen who are looking for a devotional study and pastors who are looking to supplement their commentary study with practical illustrations and applications.
