False teachers had infiltrated the churches in Galatia, attacking Paul's authority as well as the gospel he preached. So Paul's letter to the Galatians is not only a defense of his authority as an apostle, but also a celebration of the remarkable grace offered through Jesus Christ.
John Stott's teachings from The Message of Galatians are offered here as brief devotional readings suitable for daily use. Designed as a church resource for small groups, this book includes nine weekly studies that take us passage by passage through Galatians, allowing readers to enjoy the riches of Stott's writings in a new, easy-to-use format.

What People are Saying About This

Christopher J. H. Wright

"Nothing would have been more important to John Stott than to get the words of the title in the right order. We are reading the Bible with John Stott, not just reading John Stott on the Bible. For in his preaching as in his writing, John Stott's greatest gift was to help people see and hear clearly what the Bible itself actually says, and then, of course, to challenge us as to how we should respond to what we see and hear. Not all of us possess the complete works of John Stott. But we do possess the complete Bible. These sensitively edited extracts from Stott's writings will not only introduce new readers to the riches of his biblical exposition (and make them hungry for more), but will surely also introduce them to riches of God's word they had not seen before."

Greg Jao

"A pastor once said he would crawl five hundred miles to hear John Stott preach, and this book shows you why. John Stott explains the Scriptures with a brilliant mind, a pastor?s heart, and a soul gripped by the beauty, glory and love of Jesus."

Mark Labberton

"No one I have known has loved, preached, taught and lived the Bible any more than John Stott. He often quoted Spurgeon's comment that we should seek for our very blood to become 'Bibline'; so seriously should we soak in Scripture in order to know and live it. This new series will give us daily help in just such living."
