We are very pleased to announce our newest book with G3 Press—Galatians Point-to-Point Bible Commentary by Chip Thornton!
Paul Washer says of this helpful, readable Bible study aid,
Chipley Thorton has written an extremely helpful commentary on the book of Galatians. Concise, clear, insightful, and to the point—true exposition plain and simple. It will be a useful tool for the new believer as well as the seasoned expositor.
This commentary does exactly what it promises—it gets to the point! The commentary is very helpful for anyone who wants to study Galatians and understand the central thrust of the book. It is also perfect for pastors who are pressed for time and simply need help discerning Paul’s central point for each section of Galatians. It is a practical, devotional, helpful tool for anyone desiring to study Galatians or teach and preach from the book.
While more technical exegetical commentaries are helpful and necessary, I have often longed for more pastoral commentaries that just get to the point! This is exactly what Chip Thornton has given us in the Point-to-Point Bible Commentaries series. I am so thankful for his labors, and I am confident that this commentary will be quite useful to many pastors who desire to preach the text of Scripture, as well as any Christian who wants to study the book for themselves.
Josh Buice says of this commentary,
Many commentators today fall into one of two popular ditches when it comes to biblical commentaries. They either make the mistake of majoring on the side of practicality while ignoring doctrinal truth, or they major on doctrinal truth while ignoring practical matters at hand. One of the strengths of Chip Thornton is that he’s fiercely committed to the original author’s intent, which allows him to explain the doctrine faithfully within its proper context, while at the very same time providing helpful practical points from a pastoral perspective. We need more commentators like Chip Thornton who write in such a way to strengthen and encourage the church of Christ.
New works-based ideologies like critical race theory, a Christless Christianity, postmodernism, and man-centered counseling/therapeutic philosophies have seeped into congregations. Insidiously, they are corrupting the heart of the gospel: justification by faith alone in Christ alone. This resource follows Paul in his letter to the Galatians, point-by-point, to answer an age-old question for a new generation, “How can a person stand righteous (justified) before God?”
Chip Thornton is pastor of First Baptist Church in Springville, Alabama. He is a graduate of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he earned his PhD in expository preaching.
