The Gospel according to Luke has been called the loveliest book in the world. As a Gentile, Luke has the distinction of being the only New Testament writer who was not Jewish. He was a doctor by profession - compassionate and kind, he saw people as they truly were.
A gospel of distinct characteristics, Luke is all-inclusive - it is the Gospel for the Gentiles, the Gospel of Prayer, the Gospel of Women, the Gospel of Praise and the Gospel of the Poor.
Millions of people, worldwide, love William Barclay's endlessly fascinating ability to unlock and reveal the meaning of the New Testament in our daily life. Barclay breaks down the barriers to the ancient past, enabling the modern reader to understand fully what was really said in the New Testament.
'The only commentaries that I've used consistently are those written by William Barclay. They are absolutely fantastic and I wouldn't give up my set for anything.' -- Steve ChalkeOasis Trust 'The first volume in the Daily Study Bible was published in 1953, and the series became wildly popular. Barclay was an academic who read and thought very widely outside his own discipline - rare today, when everyone specialises so much. These updated commentaries are a mine of stories and illustrations.' -- Mark Woods Christianity
