FAITH

Galatians

Galatians by George Brunk III tracks the important role that this epistle of the Apostle Paul played in Christianity's shift from being a messianic sect within Judaism to a Gentile-dominated religious movement. As a sustained defense of Jesus Christ as the center of faith, the full unity and equality of Christ's followers, and the Spirit's empowerment in the life of the believer, Galatians holds both world-changing and personally transforming power for the contemporary church. Brunk's commentary, an important contribution to biblical studies, includes historical and cultural background; shares necessary theological, sociological, and ethical meanings; and, in general, makes "the rough places plain."
