Commentary on the Epistle to the Galatians

Martin Luther

Book Overview: 

Martin Luther strove to give a verse by verse exegesis of the Epistle to the Galatians in the work. The original work, written in Latin in around 1516, was much longer.

Fantastic! This is an abridged version, I believe. The unabridged version runs many hundreds of pages. Even so, this is full of many lustrous insights.

The message of the first four chapters is hammered home with admirable consistency: we are justified by faith, not by works. Those who teach that any
