Cyril Emmet’s short commentary on Galatians is aimed at readers who have no prior knowledge of Greek and those that haven’t had much theological training. His valuable comments on this Pauline epistle will benefit any reader. Emmet provides an insightful introduction to the life of Paul before delving into an in-depth commentary and analysis of the text.
In the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in St. Paul’s Epistle to the Galatians appear on mouse-over and link to your favorite Bible translations. With Logos’ advanced features, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “gospel” or “theology.”
A commentary of independence and ripe scholarship. . . . the argument in favor of an early date for the Epistle, a date preceding the Apostolic Council of Acts xv, is given in fullness and with astonishing force of conviction. For that great argument alone the book is worth buying.
