Forthcoming Galatians Commentary

Martinus C. De Boer's Galatians commentary apparently is ready to see the light of day! The release date is for early August, and weighs in at 488 pages with a $50.00 price tag.

Here's the brief description:

This new commentary in the New Testament Library series is not a systematic study of Pauline theology; rather, the aim of this study is to trace Paul's theology as it unfolds in his letter to the church at Galatia, and to attempt to illuminate, as far as possible, how the Galatians likely comprehended it, at the time they received it. The author asks readers to imagine themselves as silent witnesses to Paul's dictation of the letter and to observe, through a historical perspective, how the Galatian Christians might have understood Paul's words.

I have been looking forward to this for some time. Now, if Doug Moo's contribution would just come out!
