Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a great curriculum! It works as a devotional aid, teaching guide and - alongside the accompanying Good Book Guide - is an indispensable resource for Bible study group leaders. It has been a huge help to me in preaching parts of Galatians recently. --Sam Allberry, author of Lifted and Connected and Associate Minister of St Mary's, Maidenhead, UK

Customer Reviews

The book is well organized and very easy to navigate.

Keller makes it clear that the gospel is not just for that unconverted person who needs to find Jesus, but rather the gospel is for every Christian, every day.

I have been listening to Tim Keller sermons for two years. I am so encouraged by the way he makes every aspect of the Bible personal AND hope filled. This book on Galatians is no exception.

Keller makes it clear that the gospel is not just for that unconverted person who needs to find Jesus, but rather the gospel is for every Christian, every day. The good news that we are so broken and sinful AND so loved by Christ- a complete package. Through Galatians it is clear to see that God uses sinners, God uses sinners who have hated Him and His people. He used Paul and God uses every person and circumstance to His glory: "The gospel gives us spectacles through which we can review our own lives and see God preparing us and shaping us, even through our own failures and sin, to become vessels of His grace in the world."

Galatians is all about Paul telling the Christians that the gospel is sufficient; that they are distorting the work of Christ when they add dietary laws, circumcision- that by believing they could add to Christ work to make it more sufficient is actually to deny the gospel. Salvation is sheer grace. "If you add anything to Christ as a requirement for acceptance with God- if you start to say: To be saved I need the grace of Christ plus something else- you completely reverse the "order" of the gospel. God accepts us and then we follow Him."

"To change the gospel the tiniest bit is to lose it so completely that the new teaching has no right to be called a 'gospel.'"

Paul sets about in Galatians to remind all the Christians that the gospel alone is sufficient. If you have read Tim Keller's other books or heard his sermons, you know that Keller's desire is that people know their savior, Jesus Christ.

Format: Hardcover
Timothy Keller in 'Galatians For You' offers an easy-to-read, accessible, and informative study and commentary into the book of Galatians. I say study AND commentary because it is his exposition and commentary on the letter and, yet, it is formatted as a study, with helpful reflection questions, sidebar summaries, and a glossary.

Timothy Keller (D.Min., Westminster Theological Seminary) is founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City. He is the author of the New York Times bestseller, 'The Reason for God,' and is ordained in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).

In typical Keller fashion, his focus is on the centrality of the gospel through which one enters the kingdom of God, but also through which one continues to live out his or her Christian life. The gospel, as he puts it, is the A to Z of the Christian life. Keller also refreshingly stays close to the biblical text. He doesn't wander off into lots of personal stories or anecdotes. He attempts to bring out relevant application by looking at the meaning of the text in light of its historical, literary, and redemptive contexts.

The book is well organized and very easy to navigate. The content is superb; you can't go wrong with Keller's treatment of the text. My only criticism is that he seems a bit too philosophical and ethereal at certain points. I found myself wanting a few more "handles" to grab a hold of what he was trying to communicate. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this book for the pastor, student, or lay reader.

Galatians for You by Timothy Keller

In this new series of commentaries published by the Good Book Company (U.K.), the design is to give readers a snapshot of biblical books with an eye towards solid commentary on application. In Galatians for You, Pastor Timothy Keller expounds the book of Galatians around the central theme of the gospel. He writes, "But in this short letter, Paul outlines the bombshell truth that the gospel is the A to Z of the Christian life. It is not only the way to enter the kingdom; it is the way to live as part of the kingdom. It is the way Christ transforms people, churches and communities" (9). Living out the gospel and the consequences in believing the gospel helps address the main contextual aspects of Galatians from the Jewish/Gentile arguments to racial division. Furthermore, what is apparent throughout the book is that the permanent nature of the gospel being central to all things runs right through the heart of every page, helping the reader to focus on the main thesis.

In Keller fashion, the commentary breathes through with a theology that is both edifying and Christ-centered. Commenting on Galatians 1:4a, Keller writes, "He did all we needed to do, but cannot do. If Jesus' death really paid for our sins on our behalf, we can never fall back into condemnation" (16). The notion of substitutionary atonement gives the Christian real hope because there is no reason to be condemned anymore, the full burden and weight of sin and its destructive power has been vanquished. What I greatly enjoyed in each chapter, including this one, is Keller's insistence in outlining the universality of the gospel and its implications while continually drawing us toward the particularity of the meaning of the gospel for Paul and us. How does Keller do this?
