David deSilva treats Galatians as a specimen of rhetoric, a letter written not merely to inform, but to persuade. Galatians draws on deSilva’s expertise in rhetorical criticism to demonstrate how Paul makes particular language choices to shape his argument and accomplish his distinctive purposes. deSilva’s expert analysis guides students not only through the grammar of Galatians but also through the linguistic challenges of New Testament Greek. 

This handbook is a must-have for students wishing to master Greek in the context of New Testament studies. 

“deSilva goes above and beyond the call of duty by not simply commenting on grammar and syntax, but also delving into the historical context of Galatians and briefly touching on theological issues.”

—Nijay K. Gupta, Crux Sola
