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.

    This commentary is invaluable in order to fully understand the world in which the Galatians lived. It allows us to truly understand the impetus behind the letter, as well as why certain things are addressed in a particular manner. A must for anyone truly attempting to understand or teach Galatians.

    An excellent, and well-rounded resource. Without being too "technical", this commentary helps the reader understand both the social ethos and theological intricacies of the Epistle to the Galatians. It is a smooth-reading and insightful guide through Paul's effort to bring the "bewitched" Galatians back to their senses. Dr. Witherington engages the text at a scholarly level while maintaining a high view of scripture. He also interacts extensively with the copious amount of existing work on Galatians (i.e. Dunn, Longenecker, Martyn, Bruce, etc.). I would highly recommend this commentary (or any of Dr. Witherington's works) to any student of Scripture.
