Item Description...
Overview
Focusing on Paul's most polemical letter, Ben Witherington's groundbreaking Grace in Galatia features the latest discussion of major issues in Pauline studies. Paul's view of the law and the relationship between the historical data in Galatians and Acts are meticulously explored, while special sections at the end of each chapter highlight the relevance of the text for today's believer. An illuminating, accessible commentary for general readers, as well as students and scholars!

Publishers Description
Grace in Galatia is an innovative socio-rhetorical study of Paul's most polemical letter. Ben Witherington breaks new ground by analyzing the whole of Galatians as a deliberative discourse meant to forestall the Galatians from submitting to circumcision and the Jewish law. The commentary features the latest discussion of major problems in Pauline studies, including Paul's view of the law and the relationship between the historical data in Galatians and in Acts. Yet the narrative character of Witherington's work allows it to remain exceedingly accessible. The volume also includes sections following the major divisions of the commentary that point to the relevance of the text for believers today, making Grace in Galatia of special value to pastors and general readers as well as students and scholars.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Good Locator of Paul  Apr 2, 2000
Ben Witherington makes a strong contribution to the field of scholarship on Galatians. Witherington shows two main strengths in this commentary. First, he makes a strong case for an early dating of Galatians, placing this polemical book solidly before the Jerusalem council. Second, he brings his rhetorical skill to the text, and creates a first-rate rhetorical framework for the letter in a remarkably readable effort. There is room to disagree with Witherington on his conclusions, especially on his early dating of Galatians, and the amount of historicity he places with Acts. Yet, one appreciates the strength of his argument, and the flow of his presentation.
