The Word Biblical Commentary delivers the best in biblical scholarship, from the leading scholars of our day who share a commitment to Scripture as divine revelation. This series emphasizes a thorough analysis of textual, linguistic, structural, and theological evidence. The result is judicious and balanced insight into the meanings of the text in the framework of biblical theology. These widely acclaimed commentaries serve as exceptional resources for the professional theologian and instructor, the seminary or university student, the working minister, and everyone concerned with building theological understanding from a solid base of biblical scholarship.
Richard N. Longenecker is Ramsey Armitage Professor of New Testament, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto. He receivec the B.A. and M.A. degrees from Wheaton College and Wheaton Graduate School of Theology, respectively, and the Ph.D. from New College, University of Edinburgh. His principal publications include Paul, Apostle of Liberty (1964), The Christology of Early Jewish Christianity (1970), The Ministry and Message of Paul (1971), Biblical Exegesis in the Apostolic Period (1975), The Acts of the Apostles in The Expositors Bible Commentary (1981), and The New Testament Social Ethics for Today (1984).
Buddy Boone5 Stars Out Of 5October 17, 2001Buddy BooneThis is a fine accomplishment from an excellent evangelical scholar. The introduction is comprehensive and the exegesis is thorough and lucid. Longenecker produces a lot of work with the Greek text, but the exegesis flows nicely. The format of the WBC series can be difficult, but the rewards are worth the effort. Longenecker concludes each section with a summary of the exegesis. Longenecker has attempted to exegete the text without presupposing a particular perspective on Pauline theology. Therefore, we find him in agreement with some aspects of the "New Perspective" (Sanders, Dunn, et al), and in agreement with some aspects of more traditional views. His treatment of the North/South Galatian issue is very helpful. His conclusions in favor of the South Galatian theory are very convincing. Overall, I think that Richard Longenecker and F.F. Bruce (NIGTC) have provided the best work on Galatians, with Ben Witherington (Socio-Rhetorical Commentary) offering extra details on the sociological and cultural situation and Paul's use of rhetorical method, and Timothy George (NAC) providing the best defense of the traditional Reformation understanding. Ronald Fung (NICNT) is good for a solid and well reasoned explanation of Galatians. With these commentaries, we should have a very good understanding of this great epistle.
