Galatians: A Mentor Commentary

( 1 )

Overview

While Dr. 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 ...

Overview

While Dr. 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. Galatians is sent out to the reading public with the prayer that it might be used of God to extend the gospel of Jesus Christ and the truth of justifying righteousness through the proclamation of free grace to sinners who need the message of salvation through Christ alone!Mentor commentaries combine a high view of scripture with access to the latest academic theological research. This unique combination allows the reader to see what recent scholarly research has discovered without losing sight of the inerrancy of scripture.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Timely, lucid, and reliable, this is an excellent commentary for preachers, Bible study leaders and others. David McWilliams admirably succeeds in his aim for brevitas and claritas, the two qualities in commentators that Calvin most commended. He distils a great deal of scholarship into uncluttered and readable prose. Paul's message in Galatians has rarely been so urgently needed as today, when justification only by faith is under attack from many sides. McWilliams explains it with judicious care." ~ Robert Letham (Director of Research and Senior Lecturer in Systematic and Historical Theology, Wales Evangelical School of Theology, Bridgend, Wales)

    Why this commentary is worth reading

    Another commentary on Galatians?

    There are numerous commentaries on this grand epistle, but not all convey the passion and zeal that Paul had for the truth of the Gospel of God's free grace in Jesus Christ. In this commentary, it is evident that David McWilliams is not only a superb exegete and theologian, he is also a true pastor, who deeply loves the Gospel that Paul preached as well as Christ's Church, which desperately needs to hear that Gospel today.

    The eschatoligical and redemptive-historical framework of Paul's theology is evident throughout the exposition. It is an invaluable resource for both ministers and laymen, and it deserves a place on the shelf right next to Martin Luther's invigorating commentary.
