How can a 1st century later speak to the needs of a 21st century audience? Galatians has been a central book of the Bible for many Christian theologians. This book brings it powerfully into the present.
With this volume on Paul’s Letter to the Galatians, Dr Bruce Epperly, author of Philippians: A Participatory Study Guide, Finding God in Suffering: A Journey with Job, and Transforming Acts: Acts of the Apostles as a 21st Century Gospel, again brings the study of a Bible book to life for a 21st century audience. Epperly founds his work in the results on modern critical scholarship, but he’s not content with reciting scholarship or discussing history. He aims to make the study of this theologically central letter a transformative experience.
He does so by never losing sight of the fact that human problems remain human problems and that human potentiality, touched by God’s grace, can accomplish great things. He finds a message of liberation in this book. Liberation from our guilt, yes, but also liberation from our self-imposed limitations. Through reading, discussion, exercises, and thought questions, he leads the reader through a study that can only be described as an adventure.
It’s an adventure you won’t want to miss.
