Designed for the pastor and Bible teacher, this series brings together commentary features rarely gathered together in one volume. Written by notable evangelical scholars, each volume in the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series treats the literary context and structure of the passage in the original Greek. The series consistently provides the main point, an exegetical outline, verse-by-verse commentary, and theology in application in each section of every commentary. Critical scholarship informs each step but does not dominate the commentary, allowing readers to concentrate on the biblical author’s message as it unfolds. While primarily designed for those with a basic knowledge of biblical Greek, all who strive to understand and teach the New Testament will find these books beneficial. The ZECNT series covers the entire New Testament in twenty volumes; Clinton E. Arnold serves as general editor.In this volume, Thomas R.

I am a pastor so I have the privilege of buying a number of commentaries on each book of the Bible to study with. This is a great commentary. It is easy to read, written by a well-known scholar, and gets to the point without having to wade through pages of material. Technical info appears in the footnotes at the bottom of the page so it is there if you want it.

What I really LOVE is that there is an exegetical outline with each section of text that shows how the verses go together grammatically. This makes trying to explain the text easy when teaching and preaching.

It is also has "Theology in Application" which helps to draw out legitimate applications from the text for today.

I should add that the font is also easy to read and it is well organized.

This commentary is PERFECT if you're a Sunday School teacher or preacher. It is set up in a way that presents all of the information needed in a format that is informational, applicable, and edifying. I think this series will turn out to be a great aid for anyone who is tasked with the responsibility of presenting the Word of God to the people of God. This is geared more for those that I just mentioned than the common layperson due to the layout. Of course there's not some sort of gnostic secret knowledge aspect to this commentary, I just mean to say that the setup provides help for outlining a passage and possible applications of the truth contained in that section of Scripture.

W O W to the power of infinity:

I will write my review at a later date; I am just now starting my “Galatians” study. But; I had to post this first recognition that THIS IS A BEAUTIFULLY PUBLISHED BOOK. Back in the day when books were fine or extra fine productions; they looked like this book. It is a treasure. Wow Zondervan!!!

The Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series (ZECNT) is geared towards pastors with an emphasis on the flow and structure of the text, and Schreiner's Galatians does an excellent job meeting these goals. The graphic layouts for each section break down the verses to explain the flow of thought ('y is an explanation of x'; 'b is the contrast of a'). Each verse has the Greek and an English translation, and the explanations of the Greek are largely free of technical jargon (except sometimes in the footnotes). Each section ends with theology/application, but more often than not it is dry and unspecific. The book closes with addressing significant themes in Galatians, and this is extremely helpful for getting a quick snapshot of Galatians.

Another big appeal is that he deals heavily with the New Perspective, and he generally does so in a clear and direct manner (yet disagrees with its main tenants throughout). I'd compare this series to the Baker Exegetical series (BECNT), but the holistic perspective and focus on the text's flow makes this series accessible to a wider audience. Highly recommended for pastors, and scholars should at least give this series a look.

Schreiner’s summaries of the text and explanations of the text are very clear. I really enjoyed the structure and layout of this commentary. It was very helpful for sermon prep.

This is an excellent commentary. Read it, study it, and you will have a thorough grasp of the epistle to the Galatians.
The layout of this commentary (as well as the other commentaries in this series) is brilliant. Every passage of the text gets a thorough treatment, meaning that if you read your way through all the topics/treatments in each section, you cycle through the meaning/truth of the Word in that section several times. These topics/treatments are:
Literary content (including an outline)
Main idea (one paragraph, usually small)
Translation (including a phasing outline the breaks down and indents the parts of the passage)
Exegetical outline
Explanation of the text (the usual exegetical comments on the Greek words and phrases)
(I especially appreciate the occasional "In depth" articles that tackle tricky subjects like "The Meaning of 'Works of Law'")
Again, all these subsections that treat the passage under study slightly differently make for a thorough understanding of each passage. (Galatians is divided in this commentary into 24 passages.)
And it this were not enough, at the end of the book, there is a discussion of the themes in Galatians, also a Scripture index (for cross-references used), a subject index, and an author index.
Just about everything you'd want in a commentary.
With regard to the technical aspects, knowledge of NT Greek helps but is not essential.to understanding the author's points--and the majority of the text. In order to understand the grammatical/syntactical comments in the sections entitled "Explanation of the Text," you do need a working knowledge of grammatical/syntactical terms.
All in all a wonderful, meaty commentary. Highly recommended for pastors, Bible teachers, and individual Bible students.

Perhaps the most helpful, succinct, and reliable commentary I have on Galatians.
As a seminary grad, I always benefit from reading men like Schreiner. This commentary is no exception. Schreiner has done an outstanding job of clearly explaining the text.
