Have you lost your joy?
Do you feel like you have to prove yourself? Does your Christian life feel routine and performance oriented, driven by duty and obligation?
The letter of Galatians was written to Christians who had lost their joy— confronted with false messages about rules and regulations they needed to follow. Similar false messages provoked the start of the Protestant Reformation, and have continued to threaten the joy of Christians ever since. Exploring how the sixteenth-century Reformation was a return to the gospel joy originally preached to first-century Galatia, this book was written to help today’s Christians rediscover the path to true freedom and lasting joy in Jesus.
