"Tom Finley has produced a commentary on Galatians that targets a population of readers that most theologians overlook—the very same audience that needs it most—pastors and church leaders in developing countries outside of North America. His study is exegetically sound while remaining immensely practical. Tom focuses on the most significant issues of Paul’s Epistle without getting bogged down with minutia that would detract from the primary purpose of this work."

The final version of this book was made possible through the gracious input of several people. Special thanks is extended to James Fazio, Norman Young, Donnie Preslar and Jody Dillow for their critical review of the content of the book. I am also very grateful to Robert Conrad, John Reid, Mae Young, Bobby John, Bill Dunleavy, Christie Carman and Rick Hearn, who worked with the manuscript in various ways in order to prepare it for publication.
I am particularly grateful to Norman Young for his important insights on the Greek text. He has an expert knowledge of the Greek language of the New Testament, whereas I do not.
It is always a joy to work together with others in the body of Christ for the edification of the saints.
And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart" (Jer. 29:13, NASB)
