William Barclay (1907-1978)

image William Barclay was an author, radio and television presenter, Church of Scotland minister and Professor of Divinity and Biblical Criticism at the University of Glasgow.

While professor, he decided to dedicate his life to "making the best biblical scholarship available to the average reader." The eventual result was the Daily Study Bible, a set of seventeen commentaries on the New Testament, published by Saint Andrew Press, the Church of Scotland's publishing house.

Joy has nothing to do with things, or with a man's outward circumstance...a man living in the lap of luxury can be wretched, and a man in the depths of poverty can overflow with joy.
