It's tempting for Christians to think they can experience God's life and power through church attendance, religious symbols and rituals, and good deeds. But as the book of Galatians makes clear, religion means nothing unless believers are connected to the source of God's life and power.
In Leading the Way Through Galatians, Michael Youssef applies Paul's message to the churches in Galatia to the challenge of living as authentic Christians in the twenty-first century. The message of the Gospel is a message of freedom from the law, freedom from bondage to sin, freedom from fear, freedom from judgment, and freedom from the need to perform and please others.
Through stories and contemporary insights, the timeless truths of Galatians will take on a new and powerful meaning as today's readers learn to apply this liberating message to everyday life and everyday situations.
