Galatians Commentaries by Series

By far, the most popular post on my blog is the list of Galatians commentaries. I am therefore giving it its own page so you can find them all here without me having to update my post all the time. This list only contains a selective list of commentaries on Galatians. I currently have a 250 page bibliography for Galatians and in the future I hope to provide sections on articles, books, and other works. This list of commentaries on Galatians is alphabetised by series. Click on the series abbreviation for a link to the commentary website if it has one. Last updated April, 2020.

In making this list I came across another commentary resource website of great interest: Best There you will find information on almost every volume of every commentary series published along with links to where they can be purchased.

  2. For the sake of compelteness, I feel I should say that I have written the Galatians commentary in the Crossway bible guide series, published by Crossway Books (part of IVP UK) in 2007. It’s the best commentary on Galatians I’ve written(!); i’ll leave others to tell you if it’s any good.

    • It’s good to make your acquaintance Simon. You’re the first Galatians commentary author to stop by and leave a comment so I’ll agree that yours is the best commentary on Galatians you have ever written!

  3. Looks like you are a true expert. Did you study about the subject? *lol*

  5. Greetings, and thank you for helping to spread the word about biblical resources in such an organized way. If I might be a bit territorial, what you list as

    BHGNT: Baylor Handbook on the Greek New Testament
    Schreiner, Thomas. Galatians: A Handbook on the Greek Text. Waco: Baylor University Press, 2014.
    160258317X, 9781602583177.

    is actually by me, deSilva, David A. Tom S. wrote the (excellent) commentary in the Zondervan series (which you have listed correctly).

    On another note, my fuller NICNT Galatians commentary did not come out in 2010. Indeed, I just gave the manuscript to the series editor (Joel Green) on August 15 of this year. Yikes! So, if all goes well, 2017.

    • Sorry about the mix-up. I’ve corrected it now. I imagine there’s probably been a few other changes as well so I should go through everything. I see that your volume for NICNT still isn’t out. Is there still hope for this year?
