Peter Oakes on Galatians

The latest commentary in Baker’s Paideia series is by Peter Oakes, on Galatians, and it will be excellent.

The publisher makes available here a long pdf excerpt, which includes the Introduction and comments on Galatians 1:1-10.

The Introduction unfolds in four parts, looking (1) at the nature of the text (text, date, sender, recipients, form and content, what the letter implies about its situation), (2) the contexts for understanding Galatians (including its geographical and chronological contexts), (3) the structure of Galatians, and (4) issues in the reception of Galatians.
