William Barclay

1907 - 1978

William Barclay once said that his life's aim was to help new generations "to know better their Bible, their God and their Saviour".

The words and works of this great communicator of the Gospel inspire and sustain the Christian faith of thousands all over the world.

Born in Wick, Barclay studied at the University of Glasgow before becoming a Church of Scotland minister in 1933. He returned to the university as a lecturer in New Testament language and literature in 1947 and was appointed Professor of Divinity and Biblical Criticism in 1963.

'[William Barclay] paints pictures with words and draws you in ... absolutely fantastic. -- Steve Chalke

'The distance between then and now, or between Jesus and me, is crossed in a split second.' -- Richard Littledale

'Thanks to Barclay, I'm now devouring my Bible in the same insatiable way some devour a best-selling novel.' -- Diane Louise Jordan

'William Barclay writes with such an intelligent clarity and generosity.' -- Nick Baines, Bishop of Bradford

'one of the few who could at the same time distil the essence of scholarly findings with nourishment for the Christian way.' -- Richard Harries

'Barclay has a breathtakingly rich knowledge of the world in which the gospel is set' -- Kenneth Steven

'The work of William Barclay requires no introduction for long-term Life and Work readers. Author of the world-famous Daily Study Bibles before his death in 1978, his words and work continue to shape and influence generations of Presbyterians around the globe. Drawn from his acclaimed commentaries on the New Testament, this latest volume brings together a new pattern of his work, using the book of Matthew as a guide for a year. This work would be helpful for those charged with the task of leading worship or a year-long Bible study.' -- Life & Work magazine, December 2013
