This year is Galatianspalooza for me. I’m teaching Paul’s letter over the summer and again in the fall, and I’ll be attending the conference on Galatians and Christian Theology in St. Andrews in July.
I’m thinking of revising a previously-taught course for the fall. In addition to exercises in working through the text itself, I plan to use the following books as course texts:
- Bruce Longenecker, The Triumph of Abraham’s God: The Transformation of Identity in Galatians.
- Richard Hays, “Galatians,” in Vol. XI of The New Interpreter’s Bible.
- J. Louis Martyn, Galatians (The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries).
I may go with only one of the above commentaries and add another recent work on Galatians, such as Susan Eastman’s, Recovering Paul’s Mother Tongue: Language and Theology in Galatians.
I’ll be employing a number of other readings, too, on interpretive issues related to apocalyptic, pistis Christou, and “works of Law.”
But I’m just wondering, have you taken or taught a course on Galatians and found any resources especially useful?
