    This review was written for Galatians: NIV Application Commentary [NIVAC].
    My first encounter with this commentary was when I used it for a class on Romans/Galatians. Now as a pastor, I have proceeded to take a second look at it for the purpose of a Bible study in my church. Though I am a fan of the NIV Application series (having all the volumes in NT and 5 in OT series); I was disappointed with this particular commentary. The author holds to the New Perspective concerning Apostle Paul. This is clearly stated in his introduction to this epistle. Having briefly summarized the traditional reformed positions concerning this letter he concludes that,I believe nearly every one of the assumptions in the previous paragraphs is wrong. I also think is grossly inaccurate, and one notable scholar, E.P. Sanders, has argued persuasively that the view of Judaism and the Judaizers is more indebted to our perspective of Martin Luthers personal struggles with the medieval Roman Catholic Church than to our knowledge of Judaism. (p. 27) I would therefore not recommend this commentary, and would instead suggest Galatians: Paul's Charter of Freedom by Leon Morris published by Inter-varsity Press.

    This review was written for Galatians: NIV Application Commentary [NIVAC].
    This Commentary was very good for a class I just finished. It is not overly scholarly, and make it easy for the every day student to get a better understanding of how original meaning can effect current application, and how we bridge from original to application today.
