Pheme Perkins is Professor of New Testament at Boston College and the author of numerous books and articles.
"Conversant with Greco-Roman and Jewish literature of the Hellenistic period, Prof. Perkins moves with a sure step through the thickets of Pauline prose and the complication of numerous commentators to produce a sober a judicious reading of Paul's letter to the Galatian churches. Concise and succinct, the book is a work of mature scholarship, and an important contribution to Pauline studies. The careful reader will reap ample rewards." Paul J. Achtemeier, Professor of Biblical Interpretation emeritus at Union Theological Seminary in Virginia--Sanford Lakoff "A sober and judicious reading of Paul's letter to the Galatian churches. Concise and succinct, the book is a work of mature scholarship, and an important contribution to Pauline studies. The careful reader will reap ample rewards."--Sanford Lakoff "This perceptive and careful study challenges much recent scholarship on Galatians and is sure to invigorate further exploration of this text. Perkins's analysis may not convince every reader at every point, but a close reading of this volume will reward every student of Paul. It not only presents a rich depository of information about Galatians and Paul's thought but also offers many new insights drawn from her own rigorous research. It is a timely work for twenty-first-century Christians who must wrestle with wide-spread anti-Semitic and anti-Islamic sentiments." Robert A. Bryant, Interpretation, January 2003--Sanford Lakoff "In this relatively brief commentary, Perkins carries on a rich running conversation with recent scholarship on Galatians, making an important contribution to debates about the setting and purpose of this challenging letter." David W. Kuck, Religious Studies Review, January 2003--Sanford Lakoff
