Paul’s letter to the Galatians is a passionate call to Christian liberty. In this important New Testament letter, the apostle Paul passionately defends his understanding of the good news of Jesus Christ and confronts those who were seeking to distort the gracious beauty of the Christian message in the first century. Paul declares that true freedom in Christ is neither the legalism of the Law nor the bondage of the sinful nature. Life and righteousness come only by grace through faith and once having received the Spirit, we must also walk in the Spirit.
Unlike most verse-by-verse commentaries, this unique new commentary by Kevin Conner focuses on the overall message of the book of Galatians and presents many ‘Gems from Galatians’ covering topics such as Paul’s radical conversion, the Gospel according to Paul, freedom from covenantal confusion, inheriting the promises, understanding law and grace, and embracing the cross of Jesus as the key to everything.
As always, the author’s approach is one of preparing ‘seed for the sower and bread for the eater’ (2 Corinthians 9:10). You will find food for your soul here but also many seed thoughts and ideas that can be further developed into helpful truths and insights about God and his purposes for you, the church, and God’s world.
