"Those of us who regularly preach need commentaries that provide the best biblical scholarship and understand the challenges of today's pastorate. The Reformed Expository Commentary series speaks to both needs. This volume in particular is a sermon preparation tool of exceptional value." --Bryan Chapell
"In an age when scholars write commentaries the size of encyclopedias so that exposition is often drowned in an ocean of background technical details, Dr. Ryken's Galatians
--the first volume in this series--appears as a welcome sign of springtime and the firstfruits of the harvest to come." --Sinclair B. Ferguson
"Phil Ryken is a living refutation of the argument that great expository preaching just can't be found today. He brings to his pulpit a rare combination of biblical insight, theological substance, and pastoral application. In Galatians
, Ryken takes us right into the mind of the apostle Paul and into the heart of this great letter. A richly rewarding and faithful commentary." --R. Albert Mohler Jr.
"Marvelously exhibits the model of the pastor-scholar. Laypeople will discover a wealth of sound teaching. Even pastors who want to stay abreast of more academic trends in biblical scholarship will appreciate Ryken's godly common sense and theological wisdom. I warmly recommend this work to pastors and to those who hear them preach."--Michael Horton
"It is uniquely appropriate that this commentary series commences with an exposition of a Pauline letter at the center of recent discussions. Because Ryken rightly understands that Galatians is about justification, and that the problem vexing the Galatians was no mere exclusivism but legalism, his exposition will help many a preacher set forth the gospel of grace." --J. Ligon Duncan III
