William Barclay discusses these and many other interesting matters in this second volume of the Gospel of Matthew. Readers will profit by the depth of scholarship, the honesty of appraisal, and the grace of style with which Dr. Barclay deals with difficult topics such as marriage and divorce or the danger of riches. With a lively translation and engaging commentary, Barclay’s comments on the latter portion of Matthew’s Gospels are great for daily readings.
