9.x - 10.x

Tab Name:

This NT commentary set is excellent and often recognized for it's devotional value — if you can get past his poor theology.

What do I mean?

His grasp of history is phenomenal. His discussion of the background of every NT passage is absolutely filled with interesting and applicable information. His use of Greek is also excellent, yet judicious. There is no need to know any Greek/Hebrew to understand his comments. Reading this commentary can help to unlock the literal, historical, grammatical meaning of the text.

However, his theology is - at best - inconsistent, and occasionally downright heretical. You can read this review of his theology if you’re interested.

BOTTOM LINE: this is an excellent historical-grammatical commentary; just skip his theological comments.

What's New in Version 1.1 (See full changelog)

  • Added self installing version.

Well, I ran into a problem.

My system tells me this is not a safe program to load.

And on top of that, which one lets you use it anyways?


I've had problems with cmtx before, any suggestions welcome.

And the .exe didn't work either.

I read the review on Barclay's theology. Unfortunately the salvation of all was lumped in as awful theology. Too bad! I strongly believe in this theology!! I wish there was more on e-sword about universal reconciliation. I also love Barclay's work, it is very informative.  

You can read this review of his theology if you’re interested. 


Thank you for elaborating a bit on Barclay and for sharing the review.  Regarding the review, the author makes some serious critiques of Barclay's theology yet doesn't provide a single citation of his sources.  

How do I get the file open?

I thought this review if you will on Barclay was so good that I wanted others who had questions about his theology to be able to read it.  https://www.christia...iam-barclay-the


This commentary set has been my favorite for word study. Do you have for ipad esword?
