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 (14831546) left his comfortable upbringing to become a Roman Catholic monk and later a professor of theology at the University of Wittenberg in Saxony. 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. Other works by Luther include Commentary on Romans and Commentary on First and Second Peter and Jude.
