Contemporary culture frequently defines freedom the way the Bible describes sin: complete autonomy. A Quid without Any Quo explores how the gospel sets us free for glad and joyful service. Not only is Paul's Letter to the Galatians perhaps the most consequential book of the New Testament for the Protestant Reformation, its radical and unyielding proclamation of grace apart from the law is once again timely in a culture that is often without mercy.
In these reflections on Paul's explosive epistle, Jason Micheli shows how Protestants generally, but preachers especially, can recover a confident articulation of their original message. In addition, A Quid without Any Quo tackles challenging and relevant questions such as the nature of the Old Testament law, the relationship between works and faith, the meaning of justification by faith, how the gospel relates to issues of race, the character of Christian community, and the reality of the hope found in Jesus Christ.
