The churches of Galatia were occupied by legalism. They needed to be liberated.
Bravely taking on false teachers like the allied forces took on the Nazis in the hedgerows, Paul assaults the religion of works and advances the gospel of freedom.
Paul's letter to all of the churches in Galatia is an amazing marshaling forward of the powerful gospel truth in the strongest words possible in order to free the Galatians from the headlong course they were on--a course that was leading them back into bondage.
In 'Authentic Christianity and the Life of Freedom', Michael Milton leads the reader through a study of the book of Galatians in order to locate the timeless truths that enable the believer to live a life of freedom in Christ and not be taken captive by false teachers. Retaining the live feel of an actual worship service at First Presbyterian Church of Chattanooga, Tennessee, where these messages were first delivered, the reader can expect an appealing mixture of faithful Bible exposition, alert concern for the times in which we live, and heartfelt pastoral application to the lives of real people.
