In this book, Let's Study Galatians, the author takes us through some background behind why Paul is writing this book. There is some debate over when the book of Galatians was written and how that might have affected what Paul wrote regarding the whole Gentiles and Jews controversy and the need for keeping the law to be a Christian. The author really brings out the tone of Galatians and Paul's directness to the Galatians in his rebuke towards them. I really enjoy how he gives the background and how the other apostles might have been affected by these issues, particularly as Paul talks about his confrontation with Peter in the book of Galatians.
For help in understanding the background of Galatians and the issues that it addresses, this is a readable and useful commentary. Again another winner in the Let's Study series (which, by the way, is on sale at Banner of Truth through the end of December).
*I received a copy of this book free from the publisher Banner of Truth in exchange for my review.
