Overview

Stimulating reflections on St. Paul's manifesto of Christian freedom.

If St. Peter had trouble understanding things the Apostle Paul wrote, no wonder the rest of us struggle with his writings. Paul didn't take it very kindly when people misunderstood him either. In Galatians he says that he wishes the people who misunderstood his Gospel would "mutilate themselves." That's strong stuff. James A. Ward has provided a distinctive interpretation of Paul's impassioned defense of Christian liberty addressed to the Church in Galatia. Centering his reflections on Jesus, he offers a way to understand the profound relationship between law and grace, the most frequently misunderstood relationship in Christian life and thought. Drawing on wisdom and insight accumulated over a lifetime of ministry, Pastor Ward helps the reader clearly understand the message of the Apostle Paul.
