Product Description

Scot McKnight has emerged as one of the most popular and influential NT scholars of the last decade. His popular blog (Jesus Creed) attracts thousands of daily readers, and his books are perennial bestsellers that prove to be informative, edifying, and challenging.

Galatians [NIVAC] is no exception to this rule. McKnight reads Paul through the lenses of the so-called "new perspective" on Paul, the belief that the Judaism of Paul's day did not employ a works-based system of righteousness. Mcknight takes the biblical text with the utmost seriousness and always provides thorough justification for his positions by grounding them in the historical data of Paul's context. Galatians is a particularly important book for issues of works and faith, and how God works salvation in our lives, and McKnight delivers both powerful theological exposition and insightful life application.

Publisher's Description

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from the twentieth century to the first century. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretative task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today.

The NIV Application Commentary Series promises to be of very great service to all who preach and teach the Word of God.
J.I. Packer
Regent College

The NIV Application Commentary Series doesn't fool around: it gets right down to business, brining this ancient and powerful word of God into the present so that it can be heard and believed with all the freshness of a new day, with all the immediacy of a friend's embrace.
Eugene Peterson,
Regent College

The NIV Application Commentary Series helps pastors and Bible teachers with one the most neglected elements in good preaching--accurate, useful application. Most commentaries tell you a few things that are helpful and much that you do not need to know. By dealing with the original meaning and contemporary significance of each passage, the NIV Application Commentary Series promises to be helpful all the way around.
James Montgomery Boice
Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, PA

This series promises to become an indispensable tool for every pastor and teacher who seeks to make the Bible's timeless message speak to this generation.
Billy Graham

Here, at last, is a commentary that makes the proper circuit from the biblical world to main street. The NIV Application Commentary is magnificent gift to the church.
Kent Hughes,
College Church, Wheaton, IL

Here at last is a commentary which is not only academically well informed but which helps the contemporary reader hear God's word and consider its implications; scholarship in the service of the church.
Arthur Rowe,
Spurgeon's College

If you want to avoid hanging applicational elephants from interpretive threads, then the NIV Application Commentary Series is for you. This series excels at both original meaning and contemporary significance. I support it one hundred percent.
Howard J. Hendricks,
Dallas Theological Seminary

This is the pulpit for the 21st Century
George K. Brushaber,
President, Bethel College & Seminary

It takes more than interpretation of God's word to change lives, it takes application. Application is the bottom line in teaching and preaching. Without it, we've missed the point of the Bible. The NIV Application Commentary is an outstanding resource for pastors and anyone else who is serious about developing "doers of the word".
Rick Warren,
Saddleback Church

The NIV Application Commentary Series shares the same goal that has been the passion of my own ministry--communicating God's word to a contemporary audience so that they feel the full impact of its message.
Bill Hybels,
Willow Creek Community Church

This series dares to go where few scholars have gone before--into the real life world of biblical application faced by pastors and teachers everyday. This is everything a good commentary series should be.
Leith Anderson
Pastor, Wooddale Church

Some commentaries build walls that isolate you back in the ancient world. The NIV Application Commentary builds bridges that make the Bible come alive with meaning for contemporary life--and the series do so concisely, clearly, and accurately. No wasted words or academic detours--just solid help and practical truth.
Warren W. Weirsbe

    The so-called New Perspective on Paul, which is literally an incorrect perspective, is pure bunk at its worst and undrrpins the entire commentary. Unfortunately, the same author also penned 1 Peter in this series. Quite simply, this commentary is not worth the paper its printed on.

    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 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.
