When William Barclay died in 1978, Denis Duncan wrote in the British Weekly, “The world does not often grow up a man of such immense industry, talent, knowledge, humanity, and faith. . . . That his immense knowledge of theology and languages should actually reach the ‘plain man,’ in the language of the people, combining the twin qualities of simplicity and profundity is, by any standards, a modern miracle.”
This collection presents some of the most engaging volumes from Barclay’s diverse body of work. New Testament Words examines 70 of the most important Greek words in the New Testament, focusing on their relevance for preachers.
