Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

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.

I'm a pastor and own this commentary along with many, many other commentaries on Galatians. I bought this commentary so that I would have great application starter ideas for my sermons. I have to say that I'm probably not going to use it much more than I have to date. The main reason is that although I find Scot's reasoning to be sound, the ideas he explores (at least what I have read so far) do not really fit the text under review. So as I read his stuff, I keep thinking: Good point...that doesn't flow from this passage well, so I cannot use it at all here.

Take the passage I preached through last Sunday, Galatians 2:1-10,

ESV Galatians 2:1 Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking Titus along with me. 2 I went up because of a revelation and set before them (though privately before those who seemed influential) the gospel that I proclaim among the Gentiles, in order to make sure I was not running or had not run in vain. 3 But even Titus, who was with me, was not forced to be circumcised, though he was a Greek. 4 Yet because of false brothers secretly brought in--who slipped in to spy out our freedom that we have in Christ Jesus, so that they might bring us into slavery-- 5 to them we did not yield in submission even for a moment, so that a)the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you. 6 And from those who seemed to be influential (what they were makes no difference to me; God shows no partiality)--those, I say, who seemed influential added nothing to me.

This is a "must have" commentary if you are working in Galatians--not because you will agree with all of McKnight's conclusions, but because of his insights into the Jewish culture of the time. While I cannot speak for all commentators, McKnight is the only commentator that I have found that does not transpose the Luther vs. Papacy Reformation issue of faith vs. works into the text. McKnight patiently explains that Judaizers weren't trying to earn their salvation as is so often explained, because as God's chosen, they felt already saved. Spoiler alert, Galatians is not just an earlier and shorter version of Romans. With McKnight's Jewish insights, one gains a very different view of how the Law was being applied in Galatians, again, McKnight avoids transposing the Reformation here and does his Jewish homework. The issue is much more nuanced, and this is where this commentary comes into its own and is needed by anyone studying Galatians. The fact this is not mentioned in other reviews of this commentary questions whether they actually read the commentary other than a few passages here and there, because this is a major theme of the commentary.

I had read Galatians before, but never learned so much as when I read it with this book. Scot goes into great, yet very relevant, detail about 1st century Judaism and how the conflict with this was a major issue for the largely-Gentile church at Galatia. It is not immediately obvious how conflict with Judaism 2000 years ago can apply today, but Scot draws out clear lessons about how we can learn by moving contents and looking for "socially equivalent" issues in the church today. Excellent book.

I like to format of the book and appreciate its simplicity. It is easy to read and highlights application as well as giving a thorough understanding of the text.

I like Scott McKnight. And I believe his comments on the Letters To Galatians have importance. However, I was greatly frustrated by how inaccessible the book was for my need. This is a book I would use as I studied and work through various passages of the text of the Bible. Thus, I need to be able to go directly to particular text within the commentary to read after studying the biblical text. I was not able to do that with the Kindle edition. And that greatly disappoints me, soI would not buy another Kindle version of the NIV Application Commentary.
