Galatians Hardcover - 2023
by Kathryn Greene-McCreight; R. Reno (Editor); Robert Jenson (Editor)
From the publisher
The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible advances the assumption that the Nicene creedal tradition, in all its diversity, provides the proper basis for the interpretation of the Bible as Christian scripture. The series volumes, written by leading theologians, encourage readers to explore how the vital roots of the ancient Christian tradition inform and shape faithfulness today.
In this addition to the series, respected theologian Kathryn Greene-McCreight offers a theological reading of Galatians. As with other volumes in the series, this commentary is designed to serve the church, providing a rich resource for preachers, teachers, students, and study groups. It demonstrates the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible.
From the rear cover
The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible enlists leading theologians to read and interpret scripture creedally for the twenty-first century, just as the church fathers, the Reformers, and other orthodox Christians did for their times and places. Galatians, like each commentary in the series, is designed to serve the church and to demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible.
Praise for Galatians in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible
"Kathryn Greene-McCreight offers a fresh reading of Galatians. Her engagement with a broad range of theological interpretation, both ancient and modern, is impressive. Here is a rich compendium of resources for the theological interpretation of Paul's provocative letter."
--Susan Eastman, Duke Divinity School
"Greene-McCreight adds a rich and important contribution to the Brazos series. The approach is linguistically careful, responsibly resourced by a range of Christian and Jewish scholarship, and steeped in the (especially patristic) tradition of the church. The result is pointed and provocative in fundamental ways. The volume reads Galatians not in the context of post-Reformation debates over justification but as a decidedly Pauline proclamation of Christ-centered promise that can speak especially into a present time of conflict and confusion over bodies and gender. Moving verse by verse, and occasionally expanding into small essays of detailed and luminescent analysis, the commentary scintillates with a liberative freshness."
