The Epistle to the Galatians: A Commentary on the Greek Text (NIGTC)
Bruce, Frederick Fyvie
Paul's letter to the churches of Galatia was for many years a document of special interestand study for renowned New Testament scholar F. F. Bruce. This excellent volume in theNew International Greek Testament Commentary series contains Bruce's mature work onthat important early epistle.Through phrase-by-phrase exegesis of the Greek text, consistent awareness of the historicaland geographical context, and balanced dialogue with scores of other scholars, Brucesuccessfully bridges the hermeneutical gap and makes the text of Galatians come alive forboth scholars and students. Based on careful historical-critical-linguistic exegesis yet primarilytheological in character, this commentary places special emphasis throughout onPaul's insistence on justification before God by faith apart from works of the law, and onPaul's presentation of the Spirit as the principle of the new life in Christ.
