Publisher's Description

The first major biblical commentary from the pen of N. T. Wright 

While full of theological import, Paul’s letter to the Galatians also captures and memorializes a significant moment in the early history of Christianity. This commentary from N. T. Wright—the inaugural volume of the CCF series—offers a theological interpretation of Galatians that never loses sight of the political concerns of its historical context. With these two elements of the letter in dialogue with each other, readers can understand both what Paul originally meant and how his writing might be faithfully used to respond to present questions. 

Each section of verse-by-verse commentary in this volume is followed by Wright’s reflections on what the text says about Christian formation today, making this an excellent resource for individual readers and those preparing to teach or preach on Galatians. The focus on formation is especially appropriate for this biblical letter, in which Paul wrote to his fellow early Christians, "My children—I seem to be in labor with you all over again, until the Messiah is fully formed in you!"

Editorial Reviews

Frank J. Matera in Interpretation
"This is a strong commentary that has launched this series on a good trajectory, and I hope other volumes will succeed as well, for it is the kind of commentary that theological students and pastors will find helpful for their own formation and the formation of the church."

Calvin Theological Journal
"You cannot dive into [Wright’s] chapters to resolve some exegetical problem. You have to keep up with him and see how his long argument is unfolding. And when you do, you see Paul in a new light, and Galatians will never look quite the same."

Religious Studies Review
"This work will take its place as a clear distillation of Wright’s main project for reinterpreting Paul and Judaism."
