Clear and succinct. Really helpful in preparing for a teaching series through Galatians.
A book that you should not miss this year!
I'm using this book together with my staff team and student leaders in a para-church organization we are in. This book fits perfectly to our focus and direction for our ministry and I believe it will help us to have a clearer and deeper understanding of the gospel. :)
Want to understand grace? ...this book is Ideal! Each chapter is thoughtfully broken into 2 parts, really well suited to being read a part a day. I found myself eagerly chomping through it in no time with definite positive results.
Delighting in God's Grace
Any book which helps my heart to delight in God’s marvellous grace has got to be worth me buying. Even moreso when that book takes me into the Bible to discover reasons for such joy; together with the assurance of God’s salvation; the privilege of belonging to Him and the transformative work of His Holy Spirit. I used it to read through Galatians in my devotions, and hugely benefited from it. The layout of he book aided this by breaking down the comments on each passage into two shorter sections.
Commentary on the text was thorough, while engaging throughout with the gospel’s challenge to both the religious and the irreligious, together with the analysis of sin as idolatry. Sometimes this flowed from the text, other times it was framework alongside the text. Helpful. Stretching. Inspiring. Well written. Highly recommended!
highly recommend it
I would highly recommend it for new believers who want to study the bible, but don’t know where to begin. Keller’s approachable language, coupled with the useability of the layout, make it a wonderful tool for both new believers, or for those who have read books about the bible, or collections of devotional thoughts, but have infrequently (or never) walked verse by verse through an entire book of the bible.
unable to put it down
I loved Galatians For You, and am excited to see what’s next in the series. I highly encourage you to check it out. Grab a copy and read it. You may end up like me, unable to put it down.
Keller deftly balances commentary with perceptive interpretation and application in a way that makes this a useful guide for people at all levels of familiarity with Scripture. I will certainly draw on it when I prepare lessons on Galatians.
clear and accessible
Keller unpacks the text verse by verse. His writing is clear and accessible… Galatians For You would be a valuable resource for anyone who needs to be reminded of the gospel. This book could be used for personal Bible study, group study, or family devotions.
I would give this book to anyone wanting to dig into Paul’s letter to the Galatians. Gospel-centered, focusing on the major issues of the text with an eye towards applications, Keller has done a marvelous job in writing this commentary.
One of the best parts of this commentary is its simplicity. While Keller doesn’t shy away from any difficult or controversial issues, he addresses them in a way that is easy to follow and easy to understand why those issues matter. The content is engaging, but doesn’t move away from the text.
