A Sri Lankan Commentary on Paul's Letter to the Galatians
Imprint: Cascade Books
"True to the spirit of Paul, David deSilva, in his creative work Global Readings, allows the Christian church to relive Paul's theology in his Letter to the Galatians and to participate in the challenges faced by the Sri Lankan church today. David's bold move in the 'Reading with Sri Lankan Christians' sections of the commentary allows the ancient text to speak across space and time--a sacred task of an apostle."

"DeSilva's commentary on Galatians reflects engagement with Galatians scholarship yet remains easy for readers to use. It also reflects both careful consideration of the various historical issues in Galatians and also (albeit less extensively) explicit sensitivity to concrete readings of the text that supplement the usual Western applications."

"The 'miracle' of biblical hermeneutics is that Christians around the world understand passages of the Bible differently, yet at the same time manage, without equivocation, to affirm the same gospel. David deSilva shows us one example of this by reporting on his engagement with Sri Lankan Bible students in understanding the book of Galatians. It is a brilliant model of learning from one another and at the same time standing together in the affirmation of scriptural truth."
