Item description for Galatians (LifeChange) by Navigators...
Overview THE ESSENCE OF THE GOSPEL The Galatians had come to Christ by faith-powerless to win God's favor apart from His saving mercy. But certain people were saying, "In order to keep His favor, you have to maintain His standards by your own efforts." To safeguard the essence of the gospel, the Apostle Paul reaffirms in this epistle that we can only live right with God by faith in Him and by His empowering presence in us.

Reviews - What do customers think about Galatians (LifeChange)?
Well structured discipline Apr 10, 2007
I have used several of these NavPress Lifechange studies and enjoyed several aspects of them: 1) They discipline me to ask the standard questions - observing, interpreting and applying the Bible; and 2) They provide enough background information to be helpful, but not so much that it is overwhelming.
For the first time I am using them in a group setting and I have found the discussion questions in the sidebars to be very stimulating and allow us to discuss real issues.
Concise Grasp of Essetials is Right! Aug 14, 2000
The Shepherd's Notes series on the Book of Galatians is a very well done and concise overview of Galatians. But it is more than an overview. It also provides:
A Capsule Thought -- an overview of EACH section; Old Testament References; Historical Background; New Testament References; Personal Applications; and a Word Picture.
All these elements together in a small 80+ pages book provide for a great study guide for either an individual or as a group (we used it for a study at our church). The guide is also filled with probing questions and thoughts.
The only drawback may also be the book's strengths. While it provides lots of information in a small amount of space -- ideas like the word pictures can be interpreted in many ways. Sometimes this leads people to misinterpret Scripture (this is a small part of this book). Of course this is not a problem for a class lead by a knowledgeable teacher, but could be a problem for individual study.
The application ideas are at a much higher discipleship level than many other similar type of study books. All in all, the book is a great study guide for booth individual and group study.
