This book was foundational to my understanding of Reformed theology.

This commentary is exceptional for understanding the difference between Law and Gospel and the purposes of the law after the resurrection of Jesus. I would suggest reading the book of Galatians many times in conjunction with reading an exposition from this each day. Grace is given freely to me,

there is no work of mine that can take care of the mountainous problem of my sin, let alone the world's sin- something I need to be reminded of often.

This is an abridged translation of Luther's Commentary of Galatians. All I can say is that the original must be a pretty hefty tome, because Dr. Luther does seem to carry on. But that's not so bad, because he's also interesting to read. (I suppose that's one reason his words have lasted all these

centuries.) As a history buff, it was interesting to see how Dr. Luther drew parallels between the Judaizers troubling the 1st Century church in Galatia and his own opponents in the Roman Catholic Church. Of course, how those passages apply to me in the 21st Century is something I'll have to ponder on my own. But there's still many useful insights that apply to every age and make the book worth reading.

this is simply one of most ground-breaking and gospel-centred commentaries made, historically so significant, still very relevant. this Middleton translation edition is the best, unabridged. Need this one to get the full flavour of Luther and his commentary. great stuff
