This book ties together the message of Galatians and of the Reformation: that the truths of the gospel are where joy is to be found. Tim Chester shows that the essential characteristic of the Reformation is the rediscovery of joy through a renewed commitment to the apostolic message.
The title, Rediscovered Joy, derives from Galatians 4:15 (NLT). The Galatians had lost the joy of God's blessing because they had departed from the truths of the gospel. The Reformation - and the book - is an invitation to rediscover the joy of the gospel. Despite the common claim that the Reformation is either out-dated or divisive, its rediscovery of the apostolic message was a rediscovery of joy - a message that is as relevant today as it was 500 years ago and 2,000 years ago.
