Reviews - What do customers think about Word Biblical Commentary Vol. 41, Galatians?

This one kids, this one :)  May 16, 2008
This is definitely that one to get for so many reasons. Depth, insight etc his knowledge of Jewish sources is particularly impressive, he wrote Biblical exegesis in the Apostolic Age. Not for the casual reader, serious bible geeks only :) More detailed than Fung, less high-brow than Betz and I find Bruce a mixed bag though his NIGTC on Galatians actually impressed me.
Not to heavy, not to light, just right. So get this one, what are you waiting for?
 
Top of the heap  Oct 20, 2006
This is the best commentary ever produced on Galatians!

Longnecker is thorough without going overboard. All the technical discussion that a Greek-proficient reader would want is there but the commentary is not dry and can be enjoyed by the non-Greek student.

The formatting used for all the commentaries in the Word series is easy to follow and understand.
 
The best  Feb 28, 2005
An excellent commentary on Galatians. Better than Dunn and much better than Fung.
 
Excellent treatment of Galatians, but a slow read  Sep 4, 2004
I have to commend Richard Longenecker on his thorough treatment of the book of Galatians for the Word Biblical Commentary series. With over 100 pages of introduction to the major schools of thought in the scholarly world (where exactly are the Galatian churches? What influence did Greek, Hebrew, etc., thought have on Paul's work, when was this written?), Longenecker makes clear where he stands on the major issues and why, but does so without being caustic. His work on the actual text is similarly thorough as he gives many cultural inisghts and effectively balances the "mirror technique" (from the introduction) with the idea that Paul is also laying out his own theology. I also appreciated Longenecker's treatment of variant readings as he cited which sources had variants and quickly explained his textual decisions

I do have two problems with this commentary, however. One is that Longenecker tends to be confusing as he tries to show how Paul's letter is similar to other genres of Greco-Roman letters. He uses Latin terms frequently, but only defines them in the introduction (among many other Latin words and theories that he rejects). Not only does this reader feel that Longenecker was trying to fit a round peg into a square hole as he treats Galatians in this way, but the frequent jargon does not aid in my understanding of the book. My second problem is more of a personal preference. Longenecker's book is an exceptionally slow read--giving a wealth of information, but not being very conversational in style. However, this is a personal preference of this reader and not an argument that Longenecker did a "poor job."

Quite the opposite is true. Longenecker has treated the book of Galatians quite fairly and thoroughly. The result is a scholarly, respectful, informative, fairly conservative. This book would benefit pastors, lay persons (especially those who have studied Greek), and other professionals looking to gain a fuller understanding of or appreciation for Galatians.
 
Thorough and Very Useful  May 10, 2000
Richard Longenecker's volume on Galatians in the Word Biblical Commentary remains one of the strongest Evangelical treatments of this important epistle. Longenecker conforms to the WBC format, which results in a work more useful for scholars and preachers than laymen. Still, I have used the commentary in preparation for teaching Adult Sunday School as well as research. Longenecker is especially strong in presenting Galatians as an ethical as well as a theological work, and in this regard the commentary is an essential source for communicating the practical ethic of the early church to the contemporary one.
