Philip Graham Ryken interprets Galatians in line with Reformation teaching on this epistle, especially with respect to the doctrine of justification by faith alone. "Properly understood, the gracious gospel of Galatians liberates us from legalism," Ryken writes. "But since we are legalists by nature, the book challenges many of our preconceptions about what it means to have a right relationship with God." Ryken employs primarily the ESV.
THE REFORMED EXPOSITORY COMMENTARY is biblical (committed to comprehensive exposition of the text), doctrinal (committed to the Westminster Standards), redemptive-historical (committed to a Christ-centred view of the Old Testament), and practical (committed to applying the text to people today).
Co editors are Philip Ryken and Richard Phillips; biblical editors are Iain Duguid and Dan Doriani.
"As a combined exegetical and homiletical commentary, the Reformed Expository Commentary in general, and this Galatians commentary of Dr. Phil Ryken in particular, is a sermon preparation tool of exceptional value. The authors of the Westminster Confession of Faith advised pastors to speak both to "the necessities and capacities" of our people. This commentary series that so well understands God's Word and God's people greatly aides in that dual task of faithful preachers." - Bryan Chapell, President Covenant Theological Seminary 328 pages from P%26R.
Demonstrates that the gracious gospel of Galatians liberates us from legalism and that Galatians challenges our preconceptions about how to have a right relationship with God.
