An urgent letter to the early churches in Asia Minor, Galatians expresses Paul's concern for the spiritual welfare of the early believers. The central doctrine of Christianity was being undermined and confusion was growing as false teachers began to teach that faith in Christ was not enough for salvation. In an earnest attempt to salvage the truth and integrity of the gospel, Paul penned Galatians--a book that would encourage hundreds of generations of Christians to remain steadfast in their faith. While contrasting grace and law, faith and works, Paul defends the theological and practical implications of Christianity and encourages believers--then and now--to live a holy life that bears much fruit.
