Item Description...
Discover not only the original meaning of Galatians, but also how the message of Galatians can speak powerfully today.

Publishers Description
Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from the twentieth century to the first century. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretative task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today.

Applications Don't Always Flow From The Text  Oct 9, 2006
I'm a pastor and own this commentary along with many, many other commentaries on Galatians. I bought this commentary so that I would have great application starter ideas for my sermons. I have to say that I'm probably not going to use it much more than I have to date. The main reason is that although I find Scot's reasoning to be sound, the ideas he explores (at least what I have read so far) do not really fit the text under review. So as I read his stuff, I keep thinking: Good point...that doesn't flow from this passage well, so I cannot use it at all here.

Take the passage I preached through last Sunday, Galatians 2:1-10,

ESV Galatians 2:1 Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking Titus along with me. 2 I went up because of a revelation and set before them (though privately before those who seemed influential) the gospel that I proclaim among the Gentiles, in order to make sure I was not running or had not run in vain. 3 But even Titus, who was with me, was not forced to be circumcised, though he was a Greek. 4 Yet because of false brothers secretly brought in--who slipped in to spy out our freedom that we have in Christ Jesus, so that they might bring us into slavery-- 5 to them we did not yield in submission even for a moment, so that a)the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you. 6 And from those who seemed to be influential (what they were makes no difference to me; God shows no partiality)--those, I say, who seemed influential added nothing to me. 7 On the contrary, when they saw that I had been entrusted with the gospel to the uncircumcised, just as Peter had been entrusted with the gospel to the circumcised 8 (for he who worked through Peter for his apostolic ministry to the circumcised worked also through me for mine to the Gentiles), 9 and when James and Cephas and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given to me, they gave the right hand of fellowship to Barnabas and me, that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised. 10 Only, they asked us to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do.

as an example. This is part of Paul's autobiography where he took Barnabas and Titus to meet privately with James, Cephas and John in Jerusalem. Their affirmation of his gospel is pivotal on the acceptance of Gentile churches. The issue is central the gospel & evangelism. Instead of drawing applications that mirror central issues, or focusing on the culmination (ministering to the poor), McKnight meanders through a discussion that ponders social nuances like which kind of music is best and how do we as believers navigate those sorts of issues. He spends a lot of time on things that in my view should not be applications from the passage at hand. He starts in about Southern Baptist music, vs contemporary worship and other things that have absolutely nothing to do with the passage OR the central issues in the passage applied to anything I could see.

The result is that what I've read so far is pretty useless for pastoral studies.

For better applcation ideas on Galatians I recommend Stott's commentary. His exegesis should be checked by Jervis & Fung & Bruce who all seem to be more careful and balanced in their treatment of controversial items.
Stott has apparently embraced Annihilationism of some sort, and his exegesis often wanders from the lexicons (I have not figured out why this is so, but he does it in every commentary I have studied), yet I think Stott is more helpful than McKnight.

In the above application Stott, Fung, Jervis & Bruce all had helpful things that I was able to draw application from for a sermon. Mcknight didn't. I wish I could give a better review for this book. I love commentaries. Twas disappointed with this one. Sorry. Use your money on Fung first, then Bruce, Jervis, Stott, Smiley.
Disappointing, trite, and misses the point  Feb 16, 2005
Scot McKnight mentions Judaism in his commentary but doesn't understand Paul's relationship to Judaism. His commentary follows the trite and untrue line that Paul was divorced from his Jewish past. This commentary makes no effort at all to understand Paul, Judaism, and the situation at Galatia. Because he assumes that Paul saw the law of Moses as obsolete, McKnight's applications are completely off the mark. He makes no reference to the Roman Imperial Cult and how it played into Galatians. I recommend Mark Nanos, The Irony of Galatians for a much better read or F.F. Bruce in the NIGTC series for much better reads.
Marvellous insights  Jul 3, 2003
I had read Galatians before, but never learned so much as when I read it with this book. Scot goes into great, yet very relevant, detail about 1st century Judaism and how the conflict with this was a major issue for the largely-Gentile church at Galatia. It is not immediately obvious how conflict with Judaism 2000 years ago can apply today, but Scot draws out clear lessons about how we can learn by moving contents and looking for "socially equivalent" issues in the church today. Excellent book.
Excellent commentary on applying Galatians today  Jun 26, 1999
I have read passages from Galatians many times in Bible studies, but never really studied the book in detail as a whole until now. This commentary really opened up the book for me in terms of understanding Paul's message and applying it to today's world. Excellent commentary and application, including many, many cross references to other writings with themes introduced in Galatians. Outstanding.
