On David deSilva’s The Letter to the Galatians (NICNT)

David deSilva offers careful verse-by-verse exposition, a dozen timely and wise excursuses, thorough review of introductory questions, and balanced attention to both Hellenistic and Jewish backgrounds. Laying special emphasis on the Spirit and the new era of salvation history in which Paul writes, deSilva has produced a work that will long rank among the most significant English-language Galatians commentaries.
