Item description for Letters To Galatians Ephesians (New Daily Study Bi by William Barclay...
Overview Paul wrote the letter to the Galatians to refute a belief that restricted God's grace to those alone who followed Jewish ritualistic law. Instead, Paul proclaimed that grace is offered freely to all, Gentile and Jew alike. A distinction of the letter to the Ephesians is that it was probably a circular letter and not addressed to a specific individual church. Also in this epistle, Paul was more meditative and poetic in his style as he wrestled with problems of good and evil to present that unity will be achieved ultimately when all things are gathered together in Christ.

Reviews - What do customers think about Letters To Galatians Ephesians (New Daily Study Bi?
An indepth study on the epistle to the Galations Mar 27, 2010
Barclay has written many commentaries on the books of the New Testament.The one on Galatians is fairly easy to understand despite the fact that it really goes as deep as possible into what the message of the book is. Recommend it as a good reliable source true to the message sent to the Galatains church which was a church plauged by those who wanted the Christian faith to be simply another Jewish sect with obedience to unique Jewish laws such as circumcision - the rite of entrance into the Jewish religion.
