Item description for The Epistle to the Galatians (The New International Commentary on the New Testament) by Ronald Y. K. Fung...

In this careful and balanced commentary, Fung contributes to scholarly discussion of Paul's writing and to the needs of preacher and student. He argues that the doctrine of justification by faith was central to Paul's ministry from the beginning, and he shows how the apostle set out the doctrine in response to the Galatian crisis. The detailed commentary is based on the NEB.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Epistle to the Galatians (The New International Commentary on the New Testament)?

Dissappointing  May 16, 2008
The review by Mark McEntire is fair and informative but I am just going to get to the point, every time I have turned to this commentary for help on a difficult exegetical problem, I have been REALLY disappointed. If you want a light, readable, pastor-focused commentary maybe you'll enjoy this but if you are doing serious exegesis and seek to really grapple with the text and gain insights into the language and argument get Longenecker (Word Biblical Commentary). I seriously wish I never bought this, bland bland bland!
My Favorite Galatians Commentary so far  Sep 18, 2006
I have about 30 to 35 commentaries on Galatians in my office this year as I am working through the book for a sermon series (I'm a pastor). I was pleasantly surprised at the basic verse by verse exegesis of this commentary and find myself looking at it more closely than the other commentaries I have. I find a lot of scholarship has been clearly packed into each sentence he writes with clear statements he communicates crucial concepts line after line. I found some of his observations help a preaching pastor to develop better sermons. For example, an easy one is the point that when Paul says 'Grace and Peace' he is using an impartation style. The implications of that are overlooked in other commentaries I examined. Almost every nuance is he explores the order of the Pauline verse descriptions it helped me to identify mirror like patterns in Galatians 1.

I also like the way he describes things better than most commentaries. Even in the NICNT series sometimes one has too look elsewhere for preachable phraseology. But I've found that a lot of Fung's stuff will preach almost as it is.

He's very good. I think that he has earned a place among the top few commentaries on Galatians written in English. I heartily recommend you get this-even over his mentor (FF Bruce) on Galatians NIGTC...which is pretty good as well. I usually go to Stott for preaching phrases, but not in Galatians. I'm sticking with Fung for now.

So whether you agree with the other reviewer or not about the South Galatians theory and it's implications, the basic verse by verse exegesis is exceptionally helpful and I'm very excited to have this commentary in my library.

I recommend you buy this one.
A must have reference  Aug 15, 2005
As a lay Elder, I have found this volume to be indispensable in my studies while leading our body through a study of the book of Galatians. While it is a very scholarly work, at the same time it is not out of the reach of the non-seminary trained individual. This is a very dificult ballance to achieve, but Dr. Fung has succeeded in doing just that. This is a must have reference for all students of this book!
Pick Longenecker instead  Jul 1, 2004
This is an OK commentary, but not as excellent as other volumes in this series. I'd put my money on Longenecker (WBC) instead, which is quite easily read despite the technical format of that series.
Very comprehensive coverage of Galatians  Dec 11, 2003
I found this book by Ronald Fung very useful for understanding the very important Biblical book of Galatians. It covers all major views and interpretations before mentioning the author's preference. Unlike other reviewers, I do not find it difficult to follow. One key focus of the book is the doctrine of justification by faith alone. I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to understand Galatians beyond the brief explanations given in one-volume commentaries of the Bible.
