Galatians (Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament)
Moo, Douglas J.
“Douglas Moo has written the single best commentary now available on Galatians. His exegesis of the text arises out of meticulous research in the primary sources and engagement with a vast range of secondary literature. His insightful and fair judgments are the product of balanced, mature reflection on the important theological issues that Paul raises in the letter. All this is expressed in clear, engaging prose that leads the reader back to the text of Galatians itself with a deepened understanding of its compelling theological vision.”See All

“Moo has proven himself in his other New Testament writings—as well as now in his Galatians commentary—to be too good a scholar, too perceptive an exegete, and too persuasive a writer to be ignored by either his scholarly peers or the Christian world at large. His Galatians commentary is a veritable gold mine of linguistic data, of various scholarly options, and of Moo’s own informed responses to all sorts of critical issues of importance in the study of Paul’s letter to his Christian converts in the Roman province of Galatia”See All

“An excellent commentary! Douglas Moo conducts a thorough exegesis in critical and constructive discussion with all the major new proposals for interpreting Galatians and Pauline theology, especially the New Perspective, and presents a clear and persuasive exposition of Paul’s arguments in the epistle. Many scholars and pastors will appreciate this book as the most helpful and reliable commentary on Galatians currently available.”See All

“Douglas Moo’s expertise as a commentator is well known, and his skill is on display in this outstanding commentary on Galatians. Moo is scrupulously fair to opposing viewpoints and nuanced and careful in his explication of the text. In addition to a line–by–line explanation of the letter, Moo also offers a substantive and satisfying explanation of Paul’s theology in Galatians.”See All

“There is certainly a place for many commentaries on Galatians, but those who invest in only one would do well to make it Moo’s. Careful in its exegesis, balanced in its judgments, fair in its treatment of others, and theologically sensitive, Moo’s Galatians, like his commentary on Romans, is sure to become a standard work in the field.”See All
