Item description for Galatians (New International Biblical Commentary #9) by L. Ann Jervis...
Overview Paul's letter to the Galatian churches is among the most riveting, personal, and rich of the apostle's writings. It arose in the midst of a crisis situation in which Paul is battling with "Judaizers" over the loyalty and doctrine of the Gentile Galatians. Ann Jervis provides delightful insights into the nuances of this battle. She shows important Paul's gospel is to him both by detailing the many ways he asserts its truthfulness and by pointing out his adamant opposition to the gospel of his adversaries.

Very Helpful Shorter Commentary Dec 13, 2006
I have used this one several times. It is a great short commentary. Over and over I have found this commentary gives succinct reviews without skimping on the most important aspects.
It is a beautiful complement to a fuller treatment like Fung or Bruce. Jervis brings clear and often teachable/preachable points for each passage. She also gives a careful handling of the text. I have not found a passage yet where she makes the error many commentators make, to insert their favorite theological persuasion into the text.
I have used this book as a jumpstart when doing sermon exegesis and am short on time...or just when I need another perspective. It's one of my top five commentaries on Galatians. I give it a big thumbs up.
