While David McWilliams’ exposition of Galatians keeps in mind the various mischaracterizations of Paul’s epistle that have become dominant, his purpose is not primarily polemical. The author sees Paul’s paramount concern to be acceptance with God through the work of Christ. McWilliams affirms: “everywhere in every way Paul’s concern is with the gospel; he is concerned with the personal salvation of sinners.” Written principally, though not exclusively as an aid to preachers, Galatians is an exposition that is scholarly yet readable, combining the rare qualities of depth and brevity.
