About "Galatians (Bringing The Bible To Life Series)"
If you want to move from the biblical text to contemporary life on solid ground, this series has been written for you. The Bringing the Bible to Life series, a companion to Zondervan's NIV Application Commentary, is intended to bring both the historical meaning of the biblical text and its contemporary significance. Each guide provides an introduction to the biblical book, six to twelve sessions with discussion questions, and a closing section that assists the group in responding to God's Word together or individually. The included Leader's Guide helps busy people prepare to lead the study. Sessions on Galatians include: * The Real Gospel * Resisting Peer Pressure * Typewriters in the Computer Age * No Longer Slaves * True Freedom * A Community Guided by the Spirit
