Renowned New Testament scholar Mikeal Parsons offers a practical commentary on Luke that is conversant with contemporary scholarship, draws on ancient backgrounds, and attends to the theological nature of the texts.

Respected New Testament scholar Peter Oakes argues that in Galatians, Paul presents a gospel of “unity in diversity” in Christ. If the Galatians’ abandoned Paul’s gospel, they wouldn’t just prove unfaithful to Paul, their very fidelity to Christ would be compromised. Oakes interacts with contemporary scholarship, draws on ancient backgrounds, and attends to the theological nature of the text. Students, pastors, and other readers will appreciate the historical, literary, and theological insight offered in this practical commentary.

This excellent commentary sets Paul’s letter . . . within its historical context and . . . poses issues that should provide fruitful agendas for discussion groups.

Despite the many difficult passages in Galatians, Oakes provides a judicious and magisterial treatment of the text.
