The New International Greek Textual Commentary is a sophisticated phrase-by-phrase commentary on the 1973 UBS Greek New Testament. Bruce's volume on Galatians explores historical, critical, and linguistic exegesis, but is primarily theological. Thus, he emphasizes Paul's insistence on justification by faith only, and the Spirit as the principle of new life in Christ. While Bruce quotes the Greek text extensively, the running text accompanying the commentary is the NIV. 305 pages, hardcover from Eerdmans.

Review 1 for The Epsitle to the Galatians: New International Greek Testament Commentary [NIGTC]
Date:November 2, 2007
Bruce is THE MAN! I do not beleive one can do better than to read ANY of his commentaries (save, perhaps, the WBC on Thess). His insights are always fresh, clear and fair and his reverance for Scripture (with a big 'S') shines through. At the same time, his knowledge of the expansive body of contemporary literature and history is mind-boggling. Once again, Fred Bruce is THE MAN. Buy this commentary if no other on Galatians

Review 2 for The Epsitle to the Galatians: New International Greek Testament Commentary [NIGTC]

This is a great commentary. Bruce believes this to be Paul's first letter. He defends this by detailing his theory of the North/South Galatian controversy. Of course, Bruce has his own wonderful translation of the Greek text.
