Galatians (New International Bible Commentary)
Ann Jervis
Paul's letter to the Galatian churches is among the most riveting, personal, and rich of the apostle's writings. It arose in the midst of a crisis situation in which Paul is battling with "Judaizers" over the loyalty and doctrine of the Gentile Galatians. Ann Jervis provides delightful insights into the nuances of this battle. She shows important Paul's gospel is to him both by detailing the many ways he asserts its truthfulness and by pointing out his adamant opposition to the gospel of his adversaries.

"An informed, perceptive, and readable exposition of Galatians—a truly excellent introductory commentary for 'the Christian community at large,' which is its intended audience."
—Richard N. Longenecker, Distinguished Professor of New Testament, McMaster Divinity College, Canada

“The most helpful contribution that this commentary brings to its intended audience is its concise and even-handed introduction. Jervis addresses the situation and opponents and the date and audience options in a way that would be very helpful for a lay Bible reader who might otherwise be overwhelmed by the competing theories expressed in a more technical commentary. . . . Another feature that adds value to the commentary is the additional notes contained at the end of each section. These notes reflect Jervis’ expertise in the field, and often include excellent exegetical comments, added background information, helpful bibliographic references, and surveys of the various ways in which a phrase or verse have been interpreted. . . . In the end Jervis’ commentary is a very concise, well-written and reliable exposition of the 'New Perspective' approach to Galatians.”
—Ashland Theological Journal
