Publishers Description 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 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. The Mac Arthur Study Guide Series provides a twelve week, verse-by-verse examination of the books of the New Testament. This revised and updated series continues to be one of the best-selling study guides currently available for individuals or small groups. Features Include: Twelve week studyThought-provoking questionsVerse-by-verse commentarySpace provided for note-taking

More About john macarthur
John MacArthur is pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, as well as author, conference speaker, president of The Master's College and featured teacher with Grace to You, an international radio broadcast. His more than six dozen books have sold millions of copies worldwide and include more than two dozen volumes of The MacArthur New Testament Commentary series.
The son of Jack MacArthur and fifth cousin of U.S. General Douglas MacArthur, John MacArthur attended Bob Jones University before transferring to Los Angeles Pacific College (now Azusa Pacific University). He later obtained his Masters of Divinity from Biola University's Talbot Theological Seminary, in La Mirada, California. He graduated with honors. From 1964 to 1966, he served as an associate pastor at Calvary Bible Church, in Burbank, California and, from 1966 to 1969, as a faculty representative for Talbot Theological Seminary. Then, in 1969, he became the third pastor in the then-short history of the nondenominational Grace Community Church of Sun Valley, California.
His daily radio program, Grace to You, which is now broadcast throughout much of the world, began as an audio recording ministry to provide cassettes of his sermons to listeners. They were first broadcast in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1977.
In 1985, MacArthur became the president of The Master's College (formerly Los Angeles Baptist College), an accredited, four-year, liberal arts Christian college; and, in 1986, he founded The Master's Seminary. MacArthur also received an honorary doctorate from Talbot Theological Seminary[ and an honorary doctorate from Grace Graduate School.
Nearly 43 years after beginning in the pulpit of Grace Community, MacArthur completed one his own life goals of preaching through the entire New Testament on June 5, 2011, at the end of his projected target window, stated the previous January, to finish "some time in the summer." During the same interview, MacArthur projected he would complete his commentary series within another five years, some 35 years after beginning.
MacArthur is married to Patricia and they have four children and fifteen grandchildren.

Reviews - What do customers think about Galatians (MacArthur Bible Studies) (Revised)?
John: Jesus - the Word, the Messiah, the Son of God Mar 2, 2006
I bought this book to use as a spring board for a study that I am doing in SS and it has worked very well for what I wanted it for. I would recommend it as a study guide for the book of John as well, it is well done and well written with thought provoking questions.
Great Work Dec 26, 2005
I agree with the previvous reviewer, this is a great work on the doctorine of Grace and being set free to enjoy our salvation. But as with other works by John Macarthur, the use of a sharper editiorial pen would have been useful. MacArthur has a unfortunate habit of using 500 words when 50 would serve the purpose. Other than that, this is a very valuable work for deeper biblical knowledge.
Set Free! Jun 27, 2001
This commentary clearly exposes false teachers and false religion. Word by word, MacArthur illuminates Paul's clear warnings and rebukes to the church at Galatia and the false teachers that were binding them in a hell of hypocrisy. A must read for anyone seeking to understand freedom in Christ. If Christianity is making you miserable, this respected teacher's book is a great relief.
