More than just a guide to understanding Galatians, best-selling author Warren W. Wiersbe’s Be Free is also a guide to embracing freedom in Christ.
Wiersbe opens up Paul’s epistle, explaining Paul’s approach to the Galatians and putting ancient traditions in perspective for Christians today. Most importantly, he illustrates through Paul’s writing how the gospel can only remain the gospel of Christ if it is solely for God’s glory. Just as the Galatian church was slipping back into the dangerous rituals of the Jewish religious system, Christians today add perameters around Scripture that hinder them and that Christ never intended.
