Featuring the in-depth analysis of a technical commentary, and the accessibility of a popular treament, this exposition by Don Garlinton focuses on the salvation-historical argument of Galatians. Writing for pastors, students, and Pauline scholars, Garlington holds to a variation of the New Perspective on Paul. Garlington emphasizes the historical context of Second Temple Judaism and the Greco-Roman environment.
However, far from challenging the foundational concerns of the Reformation, this reading of the Galatian letter is fully supportive of the great doctrines of the Reformers. In this revised edition, Garlington relies on recent scholarship by James D.G. Dunn, N.T. Wright, and numerous others.
