Man is continually involved in a twofold combat situation: of having to wrestle with himself, and with the problems which surround him in society. In this book William Barclay expounds the thinking of Paul on these problems as it is set out in Galatians 5, and shows that through Christ the perfect and adequate release is found.
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.
