In this book, Barclay examines three very varied, but important, letters from Paul. Known as the "Epistle of Joy", his letter to the Philippians is a letter of encouragement to his dearest of friends. In his letter to Colossians, Paul dedicates some of his highest thinking to the relatively insignificant town of Colosse and defends the Church there from a dangerous heresy; and Thessalonians, Paul reassures the Christians of this town, so vital in the emergence of Christianity as a world faith, and firm solutions to the day-to-day problems which arose in the new and expanding Church.
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.
