Cruse, Jonathan Landry
Besides the Bible, John Bunyan preferred Luthers classic commentary on Galatians before all books I have ever seen. Prized for its penetrating insights into Luthers theology, this volume brings to light the depths of Pauls meaning like no other commentary.
Luthers Commentary on Galatians is a timeless exposition of Pauls central thought in Galatians: The just shall live by faith. All readers will benefit from Luthers doctrinally sound, verse-by-verse exposition.
Originally written in Latin, Luthers Commentary on Galatians is here translated into English by Rev. Erasmus Middleton.
Martin Luther (1483-1546) was born in Germany and is famous for his protest, The Ninety-five Theses, which he nailed to the door of the castle church of Wittenberg. The son of middle-class parents, Luther left his comfortable life to become a monk. Luther's own spiritual awakening was sparked by his study of the Greek text of Paul's letter to the Romans, which challenged him with the statement, "The just shall live by faith." His study and teaching of the Greek text of the New Testament represent the beginnings of modern textual study, and his widely disseminated writings sparked the Protestant Reformation in Europe.
