A Glimpse of Galatians brings to life Paul the apostle and the Galatian church. It explores their tumultuous relationship, focusing on Paul's teachings on the absolute sufficiency of God's grace to defeat death and bring eternal life to believers. The author promises a glimpse, but offers a finely detailed picture of the richness of Paul's proclamation and of the persistent tendency of Christians to pervert the gospel of grace by bending it to their desires to bolster God's saving work in Jesus Christ with their own efforts.
By organizing the exploration of the themes in Galatians into ten chapters, A Glimpse of Galatians offers readers a theological primer on topics like death, grace, law, the meaning of Christ's sacrifice, baptism, faith, the contrast between law and grace, living in grace, and liberty. Each chapter digs deeply into Paul's letter to the Galatians, draws from his other writings and the rest of the New Testament, and critiques contemporary church practices.
If you have wondered ab out death and life, law and grace, and the meaning of Christ's death and resurrection for today's world, then let A Glimpse of Galatians: By Grace Alone lead you into the mind of Paul and present his spirited response to these deep questions. Armed with his teachings, you can equip yourself to recognize distortions of the gospel, see God's grace at work, and follow the Holy Spirit's lead to return to the truth.
