Paul's Letter to the Galatians has played a major role in the history of theology, especially in the Church's teaching on grace, faith, and justification. This commentary argues that Paul's doctrine of justification by faith is essentially social in nature and has important ecumenical implications for the Church today.

It would make a worthy addition to anyone's personal library.The Australian Biblical Review Matera's commentary on Galatians was the first to appear in the Sacra Pagina series. His introduction addresses the classical background issues that relate to Galatians, foremost being the identity of those against whom Paul writes... The commentary sections are balanced and offer careful exegesis from a historio-critical perspective.The Expository Times Matera has written a clear, straightforward, and convincing commentary.Internationale Zeitschriftenschau ... Uniquely explained and scholarly presented, this presentation of the meaning of the Letter to Galatians, as one of the most influential of the New Testament, should be powerfully relevant to contemporary peoples.Emmanuel For my money, clearly the most helpful of the recent lot [of commentaries on Galatians] to this point is the contribution to Sacra Pagina by Frank J. Matera... Matera's commentary deserves a wide reading not only by New Testament specialists but also by seminarians and ministers.Interpretation
