In this addition to the award-winning BECNT series, highly regarded New Testament scholar Douglas Moo offers a substantive yet accessible commentary on Galatians. With extensive research and thoughtful chapter-by-chapter exegesis, Moo leads readers through all aspects of the book of Galatians--sociological, historical, and theological--to help them better understand its meaning and relevance.

As with all BECNT volumes, this commentary features the author's detailed interaction with the Greek text and an acclaimed, user-friendly design. It admirably achieves the dual aims of the series--academic sophistication with pastoral sensitivity and accessibility--making it a useful tool for pastors, church leaders, students, and teachers.

Moo offers a traditional Reformation (Lutheran) reading of Galatians that focuses on faith vs. doing, and justification/righteousness as a status of “in the right” with God. [Full Review]

I read this commentary as well as others through their entirety in preparation for preaching through Galatians. I would rank Moo and Longenecker as the best two commentaries on Galatians.

Arguably the best evangelical commentary on Galatians, though Schreiner’s is certainly also worthy. [Full Review]

A rich, detailed, scholarly commentary on Galatians. Moo has a very balanced, moderate writing style. Even though he is critical of the New Perspective, he does so in a fair and balanced way. Being a very up-to-date commentary in terms of the New Perspective and its variants, it makes this commentary an absolute necessity.
