Balanced outlook and commentary on Galatians Aug 18, 1998
Sam Williams' commentary on Galatians is both scholarly and understandable. He presents a balanced view throughout: stating the different scholarly points of view on interpretation of certain verses, and clearly explaining the rationale for his opinion on such matters. His writing style makes it possible for lay people to read and understand his book - and in the process to expand their understanding of Paul's letter to the Galatians. The end result is a clear focus on what caused Paul to write the letter to the Galatians, and how we can apply Paul's writings to our late-2oth century experience as christians. An excellent resource for any Bible study leader or participant.
