William Barclay is a "less conservative" scholar. He knows the Scriptures well and provides many insights to the text. Yet he does not take a conservative position on his subject matter.  From his preface he says: It is in the mercy of God that there are many ways to God.  Certainly contrary to the words of Christ in John 14:6. In his commentary on Luke, he clearly states that he does not believe in the virgin conception (Luke, p.6). He speaks of several New Testament authors as though they offer different conceptions on salvation.  Certainly NT writers looked at the same truth and discussed different perspectives of the same truth, but at the core, I believe they did not disagree with each other.  This book, and perhaps his autobiography, help the reader understand his theological background and his "less than conservative" perspective on the Holy Bible. See also William Barclay: A Spiritual Autobiography.
