Overview

Paul's letter to the Galatians may be the boldest exposition of the Gospel and one of the best examples that Paul's theology first and foremost emerged within the framework of a living community. James D. G. Dunn's sensitivity to the letter's larger flow of thought and his adept hand at guiding us through the sometimes murky waters of Paul's thought combine to make this commentary refreshingly accessible and eminently serviceable. With a penetrating but never pedantic analysis, Dunn opens Paul's letter to the troubled believers in Galatia with a skill that comes only with knowing the subject exceedingly well.

It is welcome news that the addition to this well-known series of New Testament commentaries intended for a wide readership has now been supplied. A special welcome awaits James Dunn's edition of Galatians which stands as a companion piece to his monumental Romans. The new volume is accessible to a wider audience since it is written in an attractively simple and succinct style, yet tackling the hard problems this epistle poses. Ministers and students will appreciate Dunn's restatement of his earlier contributions to Pauline theology and his reactions to the ongoing debate on such issues as the 'works of the law.' The general reader, moreover, will find this a sure-footed and profitable guide to what is in some ways the heart of Paul's gospel, both doctrinal and ethical.
