Product Description

Mark gives us the most human picture of Jesus, describing him simply as 'the carpenter', and speaks most about Jesus' feelings and emotions. This was the first of the synoptic gospels to be written.

Mark learned much about Jesus' life from the great apostle, Peter, to whom he was extremely close. To Mark, Jesus was not simply one of us; he was God among us, constantly moving people to a wondering amazement with his words and deeds. Mark's style is simple and honest, adding statement to statement with the word 'and' in the way that an excited and eager child might, giving a freshness and immediacy unique to his thrilling narrative. William Barclay builds on the infectious enthusiasm of Mark, adding wide-eyed wonder to the stories behind the text.

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.
