The book of Galatians, says Eadie, is often perceived as promoting a confusing theology. The book combines Paul’s reflections on his experiences, his theology, and a contrast between the Old Covenant and the New—yet it is punctuated by emotional outbursts against the Galatians misconstrual of the Gospel. This makes interpreting Galatians difficult and challenging.

At the same time, an understanding of Galatians and its importance in the New Testament canon is attainable. His commentary on the epistle contains a careful analysis of the Greek text that includes a detailed grammatical and lexical investigation. He shows how the letter reveals both the human elements of its author, yet the important theological implications of the book—all as a unified whole.
