Considered by most scholars to be the first Gospel written, Mark offers a fast-paced and visual account of the life of Jesus and includes many tales of his miraculous works.

Responding to the need for fresh, practical, and affordable resources for personal and group study, this new series of Gospel study guides is the perfect compliment to William Barclay's New Daily Study

I really like William Barclay's commentaries.

The historical references are explained. The differences between cultures are explained and expanded upon.

This is the first of his commentaries that I have read through completely and will be doing this again. The way he breaks down the scriptures it's very easy to also use his commentaries as a daily bible study.

This was one of a number of commentaries I read while preaching through Mark and was likely the most detailed regarding the historical context of the book. He went into details that were really helpful in fleshing out the story surrounding Mark's highlight reel version of the story of Jesus. It made for dry reading at times, but made for far more informed sermons.

it was a great addendum to our Catholic scripture study. Beautiful insights into the Gospel, with very few discrepancies with regard to Catholicism.

Barclay clarifies the timeline and the cultural context.

Probably my favorite Bible study of all time.
Shaun Marksbury
When Barclary's good, he's very good. When he's bad, he's nigh heretical. Some of his insights are faith-building, detailed, and eminently practical. However, then there are sections of doubt. For instance, on the account of Jesus cursing the fig-tree, he writes, "The story does not ring true" (269), that "the whole account is unreasonable" (270). In other places, he cites the profitability of allegorical rather than literalistic readings. Recommended with reservations.

I like Barclay's style if writing and insights, but for daily reading in Bishop Lewis' challenge, I didn't really have time to do more than scan, so my reading is a bit skewed.

Excellent

I will definitely get more of his commentaries. It brings background of the time and culture into context so there can be a better understanding of Scripture.

This was a helpful commentary to read along with the Gospel of Mark which my women's group studied.

Barclay's commentaries are truly amazing--especially considering that he managed to compile all of this information without a computerized filing system. Some of his 'modern-day' analogies are no longer modern and a bit cutesy/quirky, but all's forgiven considering the timeless relevance of the Word.
Russ Skinner
Again, I really enjoyed interacting with Barclay, not that I'm yet comfortable with it being on my Kindle rather than a red-covered paperback (or is that dating myself?).

And to paraphrase my review of Michael Card's Mark: Reading the two in tandem a daily treat.
