"Readers of this collaboration between Cardinal Vanhoye and Dr. Williamson will be given not only a clearer understanding of the text but also a greater confidence to proclaim the truth of the one gospel of Jesus Christ in our present day."
--Most Reverend Michael Byrnes, Coadjutor Archbishop of Agaña, Guam

"Peter Williamson has rendered a great service to interpreters of Galatians with this translation and adaptation of Cardinal Vanhoye's commentary on the letter, notable for its clarity of exposition, ability to go to the heart of the matter, and unrivaled capacity to bring to the interpretation of Paul the wealth of the Catholic tradition. Particularly helpful, from both a pedagogical and a pastoral point of view, are the many sidebars clarifying difficult concepts and addressing sensitive issues, such as Paul's strictures concerning the law in light of Jewish-Christian relations."
--Brendan Byrne, SJ, emeritus professor of New Testament, University of Divinity, Melbourne

Praise for the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture

"By bringing together historical background, exegetical interpretation, Church tradition, theological reflection, and pastoral application, this series promises to enkindle thoughtful discussion about the implications of the New Testament for lived Christian faith in the Church today. Its accessible format and multi-angled approach offer a model for teaching and ministry."
--Katherine Hayes, Seminary of the Immaculate Conception

"The Word of God is the source of Christian life, and the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture is an ideal tool for living our faith more deeply. This extraordinary resource feeds both the mind and the heart and should be on the shelf of every committed Catholic believer. I highly recommend it."
--Charles J. Chaput, OFM Cap, Archbishop of Philadelphia
