For anyone interested in the Bible, and for Bible Study Groups 'Anyone can simply open the Bible and read it. But the more we know about the Bible, the more thrilling and fascinating this book becomes. It makes all the difference who said a thing; it makes all he difference when it was said; it makes all the difference where it was said.' William Barclay In this classic book, William Barclay shines new light on the New Testament, giving often-quoted passages new meaning. Each book of the New Testament is explored in the light of one, single dominant idea - the one special issue that Barclay feels that the book was written to say. The result is a better understanding of the whole of the New Testament.
