The book of Galatians was written for recovering Pharisees. By trying to base their standing with God on their spiritual performance, the Galatians were in danger of denying the gospel. They needed to hear again the liberating message that we are justified not by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ.

The church today needs to embrace that same gospel message. “We are legalists by nature,” Philip Ryken writes, and Galatians “challenges many of our preconceptions about what it means to have a right relationship with God.”

This first commentary in the Reformed Expository Commentary series is for people who want to experience the gospel in all its power, especially teachers and preachers who are looking for a clear, thorough, relevant exposition of Paul’s letter to the Galatians. Ryken exemplifies the objectives of the series by providing exposition that is biblical, doctrinally sound, redemptive-historical (centering on Christ), and practical.
