Product Description

This book is an innovative socio-rhetorical study of Paul's most polemical letter. Ben Witherington breaks new ground by analyzing the whole of Galatians as a deliberative discourse meant to forestall the Galatians from submitting to circumcision and the Jewish law. The commentary features the latest discussion of major problems in Pauline studies, including Paul's view of the law and the relationship between the historical data in Galatians and in Acts. Yet the narrative character of Witherington's work allows it to remain exceedingly accessible. This volume also includes sections following the major divisions of the commentary that point to the relevance of the text for believers today.

Editorial Reviews

Interpretation
"Witherington is to be commended for taking stock of recent scholarship on Galatians and distilling it into a commentary that is accessible to students, teachers, or pastors. . . Outstanding guide through Paul's letter."

Review & Expositor
"As one might expect, [Witherington's] commentary on Galatians is superb and it will certainly take its place alongside the works by Richard Longenecker and Hans Getz. . . The commentary itself is a model of scholarly analysis and brings to the reader the insights of contemporary sociological studies to assist in the interpretation of the text. . . An excellent addition to one's library and certainly can be recommended for purchase and use."
