Explanation - The following list includes not only commentaries but other Christian works by well known evangelical writers. Most of the resources below are newer works (written after 1970) which previously were available only for purchase in book form or in a Bible computer program. The resources are made freely available by but have several caveats - (1) they do not allow copy and paste, (2) they can only be checked out for one hour (but can be checked out immediately when your hour expires giving you time to read or take notes on a lengthy section) and (3) they require creating an account which allows you to check out the books free of charge. To set up an account click and then click the picture of the person in right upper corner and enter email and a password. That's all you have to do. Then you can read these more modern resources free of charge! I have read or used many of these resources but not all of them so ultimately you will need to be a Berean (Acts 17:11+) as you use them. I have also selected works that are conservative and Biblically sound. If you find one that you think does not meet those criteria please send an email at The resources are listed in alphabetical order by the author's last name and some include reviews of the particular resource.

The Bible Exposition Commentary - Ephesians through Revelation  -  Warren Wiersbe

Rosscup - One of America’s most appreciated staunchly evangelical Bible conference teachers gives diligent, refreshing expositions. These are all of his 23 separate, earlier books in the “Be” series on the New Testament. He strikes a particular appeal with lay people as he crystallizes sections, deals with some of the verses, handles certain problems and backgrounds and applies principles. He is premillennial.

Be free : an expository study of Galatians by Wiersbe, Warren W

The Preacher's Outline & Sermon Bible : New Testament, King James Version - Acts, Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians - This is a very useful resource which always includes numerous related cross-references. It will be of aid to you preaching and teaching. 

Galatians by Moo, Douglas J.,

Galatians : Paul's charter of Christian freedom by Morris, Leon, 

James Rosscup - This concise product often says a lot that shoots to the crux in a well-organized form. Morris has readable print and flowing style. Teachers, preachers, students and laity will profit by following through verses and getting some careful help on some of the problems, though at times space does not allow posing considerations (3:17; 6:16), contributing to some generality. It is a rather good survey by a discerning scholar, it simply vies with many works that provide far more, at least for teachers and diligent studying pastors.

Keith Mathison says Morris' work is among "a number of other helpful commentaries on the book of Galatians."

Cyril Barber - Galatians: Paul’s Charter of Christian Freedom. Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 1996. With his usual acumen Morris explains the theme of Galatians, deftly wending his way through the interpretative difficulties. He explores Paul’s bold affirmations, and in applying the text to our generation ably bridges the gap between the 1st century and the closing years of this century. The bottom line of his explanation of Paul’s emphasis on Christian freedom is a challenge to his readers to live life in light of the purity of the gospel. Recommended.

The message of Galatians by Stott, John R. W

The message of Galatians by Stott, John R. W

Tim Challies - John Stott – Message of Galatians: Only One Way (The Bible Speaks Today). John Stott is a powerful commentator who inevitably has fascinating insights; he is also strong in distilling important points down to pithy phrases. I always benefit from reading his commentaries. This one is highly regarded and apparently makes an excellent choice for the pastor or devotional reader alike.

James Rosscup - Here is a short but provocative expository treatment of the text. It is well-suited for the preacher/teacher or the interested layman and highly readable. It is in The Bible Speaks Today series.

The Epistle of Paul to the churches of Galatia 10 ratings - Herman N Ridderbos

Tim Mathison - Herman Ridderbos — The Epistle of Paul to the Churches of Galatia (1953). Herman Ridderbos’ commentary on Galatians was one of the first in the NICNT series. It has since been replaced first by Fung and then by DeSilva (See Runners-Up below). Although his commentary does not interact with contemporary scholarship and issues such as the New Perspective on Paul, this remains an outstanding commentary. It is worth noting that his large work Paul: An Outline of His Theology remains relevant and important to this day. Now that Eerdmans has re-released his commentary as a stand-alone work, I have no hesitation about including it in the top 5.

Galatians and Ephesians by Lehman Strauss - I like his devotional and bibliocentric style

Stay the course and stick with the true Gospel : a study in Galatians and call to sound doctrine by Stauffer, Claude T - 2009 - 334 pages

NOTE: Stauffer is a pastor so this will be written from that perspective and therefore might be very useful in preaching and teaching this great Pauline Epistle. Stauffer is conservative and evangelical. I did not read the entire work but read enough to feel comfortable that it is "sound doctrine"

Galatians : from Biblical text-- to contemporary life by McKnight, Scot 58 ratings

Liberated for life : Galatians by MacArthur, John

Not I but Christ - Stephen Olford - This is not a commentary on the book of Galatians but does exposition one of the most life-changing passages in this epistle, Galatians 2:20

Galatians by Hansen, G. Walter, 

The Epistle to the Galatians - The New International Commentary on the New Testament, 1988 by Fung, Ronald Y. K. 39 ratings

Keith Mathison says this work is among "a number of other helpful commentaries on the book of Galatians,"

James Rosscup -   Fung, Ronald Y. K. The Epistle to the Galatians (New International Commentary on the New Testament). Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1988. 342 pp. This takes the place of Hermann Ridderbos’s work. It is thorough, usually with traditional conservative views and with many satisfactory explanations, some even excellent. On verses he is lucid, frequently with some detail, though he skips past some real problems such as having fallen from grace (Gal 5:4), not really explaining. The same thing happens on “crucified with Christ”. He holds the South Galatia theory, takes an A. D. 48 date, has a fairly good introduction overall in which he updates scholarly discussion, and relates 2:1–10 to the famine visit in Acts 11:27–30.

Cyril Barber - The Epistle to the Galatians. New International Commentary on the New Testament. Grand Rapids: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., 1988. "This expert and lucid commentary . . . will be a very valuable resource to all students grappling with the interpretation of Galatians and with recent scholarly discussion of Paul and Pauline theology."--Gordon D. Fee.

The Communicator's Commentary - MAXIE DUNNAM Now known as the Preacher's Commentary, a generally well respected series. 11 ratings

The letter of Paul to the Galatians : an introduction and commentary by Cole, R. A. (Tyndale series)

James Rosscup comments on a revision in 1989 with additional pages (240 pages).  This is a revision of a work of twenty years before, interacting with scholarly studies since then. It is a good evangelical commentary, well-informed, solid, clear with good help at times on problem verses.

Cyril Barber (also commenting on the 1989 revision) - Cole's first edition has served the Christian community well since 1965. This revision will benefit the next generation of Bible students. The handling of the text is exemplary. Cole is neither tedious nor does he blithely sidestep important issues. His exposition of the theme is also "made to order" and boldlychampions the cause of grace. Highly recommended.

Galatians - Merrill C Tenney

Galatians : gospel of freedom by Hubbard, David Allan

Exposition of Galatians by Hendriksen, William, 1900-1982, author

New Testament commentary : exposition of Galatians [and] exposition of Ephesians by Hendriksen, William (1989)

James Rosscup - Staunch reformed commentary is competent in the Greek and the background, offering rich detail on verses, documented views, reasons, and a warmth of practical comment, all of this helpful to expositors. Hendriksen’s many New Testament commentaries are well-respected and widely-used by pastors, Bible class teachers and many lay people. Often his discussions are quite full and illuminating. Due to the date the work cannot be current in discussing scholarly contributions, but it does carry quite a weight of explaining the verses up to its day.

Ephesians, Colossians, Philemon by Patzia, Arthur G (New International Biblical Commentary)

Commentary on the Epistles to the Ephesians and the Colossians : the English text with introduction, exposition and notes - F F Bruce, E K Simpson

Cyril Barber - Colossians was the first Pauline epistle on which Bruce wrote a commentary. Now, thirty years later, he has rewritten this work and added to it entirely new studies on Philemon and Ephesians. He believes that Ephesians follows Colossians in thought and that Philemon, with its close association to Colossians, is appropriately included in this group of Paul's writings. Provocative

Ephesians, Colossians, and Philemon by Martin, Ralph P (Interpretation A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching - not my favorite series of commentaries)

The Flesh and the Spirit - An Examination of Galatians 5:19-23 - William Barclay

Note: This is not the more widely known series Daily Bible Studies, but is in essence a detailed word study of each of the words in the works of the flesh and the fruit of the Spirit. While some of these word studies are in his Daily Bible Studies series, this work is more complete. To quote Barclay "I have dealt with certain of these words in previous book which I have written on words, but the treatment here is new and very much fuller." One final word is a note of caution for while William Barclay often has very insightful Greek word studies, the Berean-like reader (Acts 17:11+) needs to be aware that he does hold some very unorthodox beliefs. See on site comments and also article on The Enigmatic William Barclay

Galatians by Cousar, Charles B

Cyril Barber - Of particular value to preachers, this section-by-section commentary is important for its exegetical insights. The hermeneutical approach and literary-historical details need to be read with caution

(4) The Wycliffe Bible Commentary - only the New Testament (for OT see below to borrow) - 1126 pages. (1971) Everett F Harrison - Editor of New Testament.

The comments are generally verse by verse, short, conservative and to the point. Pre-millennial.

Galatians in Wycliffe Bible Commentary, ed. C. F. Pfeiffer and E. F. Harrison. Chicago: Moody, 1962. James Rosscup - The author, a famous New Testament scholar at Fuller Theological Seminary for many years and a leading evangelical in his field, offers a concise, well-pondered work explaining many issues satisfactorily. His thoughts are carefully weighed, and he often provides good though brief reasons for views.

Quote from Henry Alford (1810-1871 - not a dispensationalist!) on Revelation 20 - "It will have been long ago anticipated by the readers of this Commentary, that I cannot consent to distort words from their plain sense and chronological place in the prophecy, on account of any considerations of difficulty, or any risk of abuses which the doctrine of the millennium may bring with it. Those who lived next to the Apostles, and the whole Church for 300 years, understood them in the plain literal sense: and it is a strange sight in these days to see expositors who are among the first in reverence of antiquity, complacently casting aside the most cogent instance of consensus which primitive antiquity presents. As regards the text itself, no legitimate treatment of it will extort what is known as the spiritual interpretation now in fashion.”

Dictionary of Biblical Imagery - free for use online with no restrictions (i.e., you do not need to borrow this book). Editors Leland Ryken, J C Wilhoit, Tremper Longman III - This is a potential treasure chest to aid your preaching and teaching as it analyzes the meaning of a host of Biblical figures of speech. Clue - use the "One-page view" which then allows you to copy and paste text. One downside is there is no index, so you need to search 3291 pages for entries which are alphabetical. 

Zondervan NIV Study Bible - (2011) 2570 pages  - Use this one if available as it has more notes than edition below. One hour limit

One hour limit.

Rosscup - This work, originally issued in 1983, is conservative and premillennial, written to help teachers, preachers and people in every walk of life with different views, explanation and application. The 2-column format runs verse by verse for the most part, usually in a helpfully knowledgeable manner, and there are several special sections such as “Prayer” in Acts and “Legalism” in Galatians. The premillennial view is evident on Acts 1:63:20Romans 11:26Galatians 6:16, Revelation 20, etc.

Wycliffe Bible Commentary - Charles Pfeiffer - 1560 pages (1962). 214 ratings Less detailed than the KJV Bible Commentary. Conservative. Notes are generally verse by verse but brief. 

Rosscup - Conservative and premillennial scholars here have been experts in their fields. The work contains brief introductions and attempts to give a verse-by-verse exposition, though it does skip over some verses. The treatments vary with the authors, but as a whole it is a fine one-volume commentary for pastors and students to use or give to a layman. Outstanding sections include, for example: Whitcomb on Ezra-Nehemiah-Esther; Culver on Daniel; Ladd on Acts; Harrison on Galatians; Johnson on I Corinthians; and Ryrie on the Johannine Epistles.

Compact Bible commentary by Radmacher, Earl D; Allen, Ronald Barclay; House, H Wayne, et al - 954 pages.  424 ratings Multiple contributors to the comments which are often verse by verse. The comments are brief but meaty and can really help your study through a given book. A sleeper in my opinion. 

The Experiencing God Study Bible: the Bible for knowing and doing the will of God - Blackaby, Henry (1996) 1968 pages - CHECK THIS ONE! Each chapter begins with several questions under the title "PREPARE TO MEET GOD." Then you will interesting symbols before many of the passages. The chapter ends with a "DID YOU NOTICE?" question. This might make a "dry chapter" jump off the page! Read some of the 48 ratings

NLT Study Bible (Illustration Version)

With the Word - Devotional Commentary - Warren Wiersbe - 428 ratings

Evangelical Commentary on the Bible - Judges by Andrew Boling (20 pages); editor Walter Elwell (1989) 1239 pages. User reviews. (See also Boling's 380 page commentary on Judges the Anchor Bible Series)

Halley's Bible Handbook Henry H. Halley - (2000) 2720 pages (much larger than original edition in 1965 and no time limit on use). (Halley's Bible handbook : an abbreviated Bible commentary - one hour limit 1965 872 pages)

Rosscup - A much-used older evangelical handbook bringing together a brief commentary on Bible books, some key archaeological findings, historical background, maps, quotes, etc. It is helpful to a lay Bible teacher, Sunday School leader, or pastor looking for quick, pertinent information on a Bible book. This is the 72nd printing somewhat revised. Halley packed in much information. Unger’s is better overall, but that is not to say that Halley’s will not provide much help on basic information.

The Shaw Pocket Bible Handbook - Editor - Walter Elwell (1984) 408 pages.

"This hardback is small in size but packed full of content: Brief summaries of every book of the bible, cultural, archaeological and historical info, word definitions, pictures, maps and charts." Worth checking! 







MICHAEL ANDRUS -- Recommended. Pithy and Practical. Transcripts about 9 pages. Audio available.








TONY BARTOLUCCI - lengthy study notes from ongoing series (e.g., 60 pages on Gal 2:1-10). 


D Edmond Hiebert -    Beet, Joseph Agar, A Commentary on St. Paul's Epistle to the Galatians. 1885. London: Hodder and Stoughton (5th Ed., n.d.). A verse-by-verse interpretation by a Wesleyan theologian of the past century. Provides doctrinal summaries as a contribution toward systematic theology. Holds to the North-Galatian theory and thinks the "Lord's brothers" were the sons of Joseph by a former marriage. Concludes with special studies relating Galatians to Acts, Romans, James, and I John.






Note: Each link below opens to a page with multiple sermon links to individual verses (taken from Biblical Illustrator but divided by chapter and verse - click chap/verse to go to next listing) - Interesting concept.









Cyril Barber - A refreshing treatment of Paul's letter that has been called the Charter of Christian Liberty. By all means buy it.....First published in 1853. A thorough, comprehensive exposition. Explains Paul’s concern for the converts in Galatia and desire to see them established in the faith. Notes at the end of the book clarify issues not treated extensively in the text. Recommended.


Rosscup - This is one of the most detailed critical works available and is very helpful in the Greek text, though liberal. Many regard it as the best technical commentary on the book, others say Betz.



  • See E H Perowne below



RICH CATHERS - frequent use of illustrations




















A Commentary of independence and ripe scholarship. . . . the argument in favor of an early date for the Epistle, a date preceding the Apostolic Council of Acts xv, is given in fullness and with astonishing force of conviction. For that great argument alone the book is worth buying.—Expository Times







GENE GETZ - short videos on principles

  • Galatians 1:1-9; God's Free Gift: When presenting the gospel message, we must make sure we clearly explain that salvation is God's free gift. Video
