The Epistle relates to Paul's missionary activities in Galatia (then a Roman province, now part of Turkey). On his first journey Paul established assemblies of Gentile Christians who were not required to follow Jewish practices. Because of changes of policy in this repect by Peter and James, other missionaries visited the Galatians and caused confusion. Paul's letter is a protest at the situation and an occasion for the first declaration of his apostle-ship, a rebuke to the Galatians for straying from the doctrine he had given them and a thinking through of that doctrine. The themes of righteousness of justification by faith were now at the forefront of Paul's theology. Prefessor Dunn translates and explains the original Greek. In the Introduction he discusses the auto-biographical details provided by Paul himself (and not found elsewhere), the identity of the Galatians, the date of the Epistle and the nature of Paul's opponents, as well as reconstructing the situation which gave rise
