Format: Paperback
"The Epistle of Paul to the Churches of Galatia" was written by the late Dutch theologian Herman Ridderbos in 1953 and was one of the first contributions to the New International Commentary of the New Testament. Sixty years later it is still one of the best commentaries on this writing of the Apostle Paul. Written in a scholarly but accessible fashion, Ridderbos does an excellent job of explaining each passage in this epistle in a way that clear and concise. As students of the New Testament know, there are a number of controversial passages in this Pauline letter. Ridderbos does an excellent job of noting the different interpretations of what Paul is saying. Although Ridderbos's Reformed perspective is in evidence, he is charitable to those with whose interpretation he disagrees.

Like most of the other commentaries in the NICNT, more technical matters, including discussions of the Greek text, are put in footnotes, a practice that keeps digressions and what may appear to some to be minutia from cluttering the commentary on the letter itself.

This commentary also has an excellent introductory section that discusses the occasion, the content and character, the churches being addressed, the date, and the authenticity of this epistle.

Format: Hardcover
A very thorough and readable commentary on the book of Galatians, using the best of conservative modern scholarship.
A great tool for any serious student of the New Testament.
