Product Description

Galatians by Philip Graham Ryken interprets the epistle in line with Reformation teaching on this epistle, especially with respect to the doctrine of justification by faith alone. "Properly understood, the gracious gospel of Galatians liberates us from legalism," Ryken writes. "But since we are legalists by nature, the book challenges many of our preconceptions about what it means to have a right relationship with God." Ryken employs primarily the ESV.

About The Reformed Expository Commentary Series:

The Reformed Expository Commentary focuses on the English rendering of the biblical text, and thus does not address concerns of the original language nor academic technicalities. Rather, proceeding section-by-section it focuses on the narrative flow of the biblical book, while drawing out significant points or theological emphases in the text, and then applies them to the daily life of the Christian.

br/>The various points addressed range between historical events taking place within a books narrative, or upon significant doctrinal statements that are made. The application or "guidance" section as the series calls it rounds out each of the particular emphases from the text making it a complete expository volume. Each commentary approaches the text from a Reformed theological perspective, and can be used profitably for either study or devotion.

Major Perspectives:

  • Scripture: Inerrant & Revealed
  • Theology: Traditional/Conservative Reformed
  • Wider Tradition: Protestant/Evangelical
  • Audience: Pastors/Laity
  • Uses: Scripture Study, General Reading, Devotional

Editorial Reviews

As a combined exegetical and homiletical commentary, the Reformed Expository Commentary in general, and this Galatians commentary of Dr. Phil Ryken in particular, is a sermon preparation tool of exceptional value. The authors of the Westminster Confession of Faith advised pastors to speak both to “the necessities and capacities” of our people. This commentary series that so well understands God’s Word and God’s people greatly aides in that dual task of faithful preachers.
In an age when scholars write commentaries the size of encyclopedias so that exposition is often drowned in an ocean of background technical details, Dr. Ryken’s Galatians—the first volume in this series—appears as a welcome sign of springtime and the firstfruits of the harvest to come.
Phil Ryken is a living refutation of the argument that great expository preaching just can’t be found today. He brings to his pulpit a rare combination of biblical insight, theological substance, and pastoral application. In Galatians, Ryken takes us right into the mind of the apostle Paul and into the heart of this great letter. A richly rewarding and faithful commentary.
Marvelously exhibits the model of the pastor-scholar. Laypeople will discover a wealth of sound teaching. Even pastors who want to stay abreast of more academic trends in biblical scholarship will appreciate Ryken’s godly common sense and theological wisdom. I warmly recommend this work to pastors and to those who hear them preach.
It is uniquely appropriate that this commentary series commences with an exposition of a Pauline letter at the center of recent discussions. Because Ryken rightly understands that Galatians is about justification, and that the problem vexing the Galatians was no mere exclusivism but legalism, his exposition will help many a preacher set forth the gospel of grace.

    In this book Phil Ryken in such gracious and gifted fashion clearly lays out the great powerful theme of this Pauline epistle, that is Grace alone through Faith alone in Christ alone. I dare anyone to read this book and even consider legalism anymore!!!
