RT @churchscotlandGreat @ChurchTimes review of Very Rev Finlay Macdonald's book From Reform to Renewal @standrewpress https://t.co/vh7DRCXYxC
Author(s): William Barclay
'Go into all the world and preach the goodness.' The Gospel of Mark shows us the reaction of the people to Jesus' ministry. While making clear Jesus' divinity, in Mark's account we also see a very human and even emotional Jesus.
The Gospel of Mark is regarded by some as perhaps the most realistic of all the gospels. William Barclay delves with fascination into the questions that fill this gospel and into this joyous account of the life and teachings of Jesus. He offers us insightful new perspective on some of the more difficult passages in Mark's Gospel. It is commonly agreed that Mark was the first gospel to be written and Barclay's interpretation opens its ancient teachings to Christians in the modern world.
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.
'It is as if he is so constantly excited by the subject matter that he hopes to infect the reader with his own sense of wonder at the riches which the Word of God has to offer.' -- John Bell
