These oft-neglected New Testament books actually deal with topics which should be of great interest to today's readers. I and II Timothy and Titus are known as the Pastoral Epistles, and as such deal with practical matters of church management and personal conduct. The letter to Philemon is the only private letter we have from Paul, and tells the tale of a runaway slave who later may have become bishop of Ephesus. As with his other books and about which millions of readers can testify, Barclay displays a remarkable writing talent that combines a profound mastery of the ancient languages with the wider conversation of secular literature and a deep devotion to the Scriptures.

I have in years past used Wm. Barclay study volumes and am buying these once again. I gave those that I had acquired away. Having said that, I recommend Barclay to anyone serious about gaining new insight in their studies. In fact I highly recommend his works.
