What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

“Todd Wilson’s exposition of Galatians admirably meets the goals of the Preaching the Word series. Wilson knows all the issues in this letter and treats them with remarkable fairness, always making clear just what the text is communicating to God's people today.”
Douglas J. Moo, Wessner Chair of Biblical Studies, Wheaton College

“I am deeply persuaded about the importance of exposition and the need for application and all the main things of sermon preparation. And there is a ton of info out there on how to interpret and outline a passage and settle on the big idea, but so much of it is not reliable. That’s why I recommend this commentary on Galatians from my friend Todd Wilson. Biblical. Solid. Trustworthy.”
James MacDonald, Pastor, Harvest Bible Chapel, Rolling Meadows, Illinois; author, Vertical Church

“Todd Wilson has written a deeply pastoral and theologically competent commentary on Galatians that is an exemplary effort at Biblical exposition. There are some doozy passages in Galatians, especially on the Law, and Wilson provides a plain explanation and then shows readers how these texts relate to modern Christian living. A wonderful synergy of homiletical energy and honest exegesis.”
Michael F. Bird, Lecturer in Theology, Ridley Melbourne College of Mission and Ministry

“Todd Wilson’s exposition of Galatians is both Biblically grounded and theologically rich. But it doesn’t stop there. Wilson powerfully and astutely applies the message of Galatians to contemporary life. Galatians isn’t left on the shelf; the Word addresses us as those who are tempted to walk according to the flesh, and we are reminded of what it means to be led by the Holy Spirit.”
Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“A wonderful combination of clarity, insight, and passion. This commentary captures the great big-picture message of Galatians without avoiding any of the difficult details, whether the curse of the Law or remembering the poor. Anyone reading or preaching on Galatians will benefit from this book.”
Simon Gathercole, Senior Lecturer in New Testament, University of Cambridge; author, Where Is Boasting? and The Preexistent Son

“Every pastor knows the need for really great resources that unlock the text in meaningful ways. Todd Wilson’s exposition of Galatians does just that. His perspective on this important letter is grounded in outstanding exegesis and seminal preaching ideas. Don’t preach Galatians without this commentary!”
Joseph M. Stowell, President, Cornerstone University, Grand Rapids, Michigan

“Surprisingly little has changed in our thought processes since Paul wrote to the Galatians two millennia ago. We humans love to add one thing or another to the simple gospel message just in case Jesus isn’t enough. Todd’s commentary is full of fresh insights for our generation and a timely reminder that God really does want us to embrace the freedom that was won for us by the finished work of his Son, Jesus.”
Phil Tuttle, President, Walk Thru the Bible

“Todd Wilson has written an excellent commentary for those preaching and teaching the book of Galatians. He combines sound, insightful Biblical exposition of Galatians with warm, relevant personal application. As a deeply committed Christian who is both a gifted pastor and scholar, Todd provides a perspective on the book of Galatians that the church desperately needs: we must continue to go back to the gospel and to God’s grace if we are going to move forward in the Christian life. I highly recommend this commentary!”
Jim Samra, Senior Pastor, Calvary Church, Grand Rapids, Michigan; author, The Gift of Church and God Told Me

Galatians: Gospel-Rooted Living is a powerful reminder of how important it is for Christians to cling to the most fundamental aspect of the Christian endeavor: the relationship with our Lord and Savior that can only come by grace, through faith. This book is a scholarly work written in a conversational style that makes it easy for readers to identify with and to value the book of Galatians.”
Gene Getz, President, Center for Church Renewal

“Galatians lives! Reading this commentary seems like sharing in deep conversation with Todd Wilson. His acute questions and insights give many ‘aha’ moments. Wearing scholarship lightly, yet always intensely informed, he opens up this essential epistle to make a vital impact on us today.”
Michael Quicke, CW Koller Professor of Preaching, Northern Seminary, Lombard, Illinois
