Never have I read a commentary straight through like this before, but this was a good experience. Schreiner organized each chapter around a pericope and included discussion on context, main idea, structure, outline, exegesis, and application. His clear presentation helped things move along without getting bogged down. There's a good range here from technical help to devotional content. Reading this commentary further enhanced my appreciation and respect for this wonderful epistle.

Bible commentaries abound today. Scores of commentaries confront the would-be expositor of any book of the Bible, and almost nobody blinks at a new series of commentaries anymore. It goes without saying that the relative value of a given commentary is all over the map, and here perhaps more than anywhere else, a discerning eye is called for.

You guessed it, I’m getting ready for the “but you have to check out this new commentary series” line. But I really mean it. The new Zondervan Exegetical Com

This commentary on Galatians is a thick but easy read. You don't need to know biblical Greek to follow this commentary since it focused mainly on how the author and various other people understood the verse and the problems with the various other understandings. Since the author argued (in the verse-by-verse section) for how I've always understood the verses, I really didn't learn that much new beyond how other people have viewed the verses. If you're interested in "critical scholarship" or are ...more

Great commentary. It is a well balanced approach between the technical and the pastoral sermon prep. I highly recommend this commentary for pastors who will be preaching through this letter. It is also slightly helpful for academic research, however that is not the goal of this commentary. Schreiner's explanations and arguments are deft and cogent. Very helpful.

My favourite commentary series lately. Nails the mix of academic and practical that many commentaries aim for with the excellent structure of each section. Tom Schreiner was predictably good in his comments on the text, but his genuinely helpful application always surprises me (before I remember that he is a pastor as well as an academic.)

I found this helpful as I preached through Galatians. I really appreciated the format of each chapter.

Schreiner is his typical brilliant self here. Precise, clear, scholarly, and doxological at the same time.
