Synopsis: Reading Scripture with a view to hearing its significance and challenge within its original, foreign context is the essence of exegesis and an anchor point for responsible hermeneutics. Reading Scripture alongside others from a significantly different social location also helps us see fresh aspects of the meaning of the text itself, as well as fresh angles on its challenge to Christian discipleship. This innovative commentary by respected New Testament scholar David deSilva is grounded in both approaches: a careful exegesis of Galatians as a basis for discerning the challenge of Scripture in any social location; and a reading of Galatians from the viewpoint of the challenges to living out its message among the churches in Sri Lanka, the result of extensive interaction with Christian leaders in Sri Lanka. Seeing the text afresh from within its ancient context and a different, modern social location will challenge readers in the West to consider once more Paul's message of transformation through the Spirit, with implications for Western Christians in their own context and in the larger global matrix of the Church universal.

From the Back Cover: "True to the spirit of Paul, David deSilva, in his creative work Global Readings, allows the Christian church to relive Paul's theology in his Letter to the Galatians and to participate in the challenges faced by the Sri Lankan church today. David's bold move in the 'Reading with Sri Lankan Christians' sections of the commentary allows the ancient text to speak across space and time--a sacred task of an apostle."
     -K. K. Yeo, Professor of New Testament, Garrett-Evangelical Divinity School

"DeSilva's commentary on Galatians reflects engagement with Galatians scholarship yet remains easy for readers to use. It also reflects both careful consideration of the various historical issues in Galatians and also (albeit less extensively) explicit sensitivity to concrete readings of the text that supplement the usual Western applications."
     -Craig Keener, Professor of New Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary

"The 'miracle' of biblical hermeneutics is that Christians around the world understand passages of the Bible differently, yet at the same time manage, without equivocation, to affirm the same gospel. David deSilva shows us one example of this by reporting on his engagement with Sri Lankan Bible students in understanding the book of Galatians. It is a brilliant model of learning from one another and at the same time standing together in the affirmation of scriptural truth."
     -Terry C. Muck, Professor of World Missions, Asbury Theological Seminary
