Galatians Philip Graham Ryken. Philip Graham Ryken interprets Galatians in line with Reformation teaching on this epistle, especially with respect to the doctrine of justification by faith alone. Properly understood, the gracious gospel of Galatians liberates us from legalism, Ryken writes. But since we are legalists by nature, the book challenges many of our preconceptions about what it means to have a right relationship with God. Ryken employs primarily the ESV.

Philip Graham Ryken is president of Wheaton College. Dr. Ryken was educated at Wheaton College, Westminster Theological Seminary, and the University of Oxford, where he received his doctorate in historical theology. He is Bible teacher for the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, speaking nationally on the radio program Every Last Word. He and his wife, Lisa, have five children.

Each volume in the series provides exposition that gives careful attention to the biblical text, is doctrinally Reformed, focuses on Christ through the lens of redemptive history, and applies the Bible to our contemporary setting.

Philip Graham Ryken (born 1966) is an American theologian, Presbyterian minister, and academic administrator. He is the eighth and current president of Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. Ryken and his father, literary scholar Leland Ryken, have collaborated to produce a study Bible, and the father-son team worked with James Wilhoit to write Ryken's Bible Handbook, which focuses on the literary genres and styles in each book of the Bible.

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."Some commentaries lose the forest for the trees, and others the trees for the forest," says Mark Dever. "This series promises to be both exegetically sensitive and theologically faithful."

While not a technical work, this commentary (and the series) offers thorough interpretation and analysis of Paul's thought, with homiletics in mind. So the teacher or preacher preparing lessons or sermons will find this invaluable. The chapter divisions would easily mark a sermon series (which I'm preparing for; the reason I read it), to include helpful illustrations and quotes. This is "expository" but not academic; laity without any knowledge of Greek will find no problem here. My only disagreement is in Ryken's assessment of Catholic thought; when Protestants speak of salvation, we tend to talk of justification (without necessarily using the term); when Catholics talk of salvation, they tend to talk of sanctification. Both are Spirit-led, not by human effort. But this IS a Reformed commentary, so one must expect some anti-RC content. That aside, anyone hoping to grasp the message of Galatians and relate the early controversy of the church with regard to circumcision to today will find this commentary valuable. This isn't a matter of a historical/theological debate, but a truth regarding how God brings us to saving faith and sets us free to live for Christ.

First let me say that I am a pastor working through Galatians. I have looked at about at least 30 or 35 commentaries either a little or quite a bit. This one has ended up on my short list of favorites. Although I don't use it every time I work on a passage, it is one that gets used a lot.

Here's what I love about it:

This commentary lays out a review of the passage he deals with in a logical and clear fashion that is easy to follow. He gives good bullet points that are easy to follow reviewing even some theological ramifications of the passage at hand. It's practical and deals with issues most readers will want to understand. He does not spend a lot of time on difficult to follow minutia. Yet at the same time he does give a lot of good perspective. For preachers, some of his phrases will preach well.

Some of his illustrations are fresh and innovative. For example, he illustrates the addition of the law/legalism over Christ's work on the cross (Galatians 5) by talking about a baseball that is autographed by Babe Ruth. The owner of the baseball, seeing Babe's signature is faded, decides to take out a marker and write B-A-B-E R-U-T-H on it...right over the original signature. The effect is to make the ball worthless. In the same way, trying to add our works via the law or on our own has that effect to Christ's work on the cross. It obliterates it. So we should trust in Christ's work on the cross, not our own or our efforts through the law of Moses.

Now there is one weakness in this book. I would expect a commentary that says 'Reformed' on the cover to present the reformed view. He does, however, what he fails to do is present CONVINCING arguments for rejecting Arminianism. For example, in Galatians 5, he says that since eternal security cannot be lost, therefore the passage which says 'you are severed from Christ' cannot deal with eternal security. The problem with that approach is that it only works with some Calvinists. Nobody I know wants to be told a certain view cannot be true because of a hotly debated theological vantage point must eliminate ones interpretation. Especially when that is one of the hallmark verses of the whole debate!!! When a Reformed scholar deals with one of the key Arminian texts, I really am a bit disappointed to read 'it must be the Calvinists way because of other passages in the bible...therefore we have to skate away from the text here and add some additional meaning to understand it' (my own paraphrase). Surely Calvinist scholars have better arguments for their position (they do!).

He goes on to say it must mean expelled from the church or community of believers. Even though the text bears nothing that warrants this extension, he claims it must be that way, essentially because Calvinism is the truth.

So for Arminians, this is an exceptionally unconvincing approach. For Calvinists, it may not bother them, unless they are trying to persuade their Arminian friends. In spite of this flaw (what book outside the bible is perfect?), Ryken has done a tremendous job in my opinion.

Overall, this commentary is superior to most of the others for lay leaders/bible teachers, pastors and perhaps undergraduate bible students.

My copy is all marked up and I'm sure if you buy one you will enjoy it. I will continue to use it and because of this commentary will look for other books by this author.

I heartily recommend it for all bible students.
