-- Michael Angel Martín, The Living Church, May 2018 Issue
If you want to grasp the message of Galatians, this book is for you. Jordan will equip you to study and understand the letter's glorious defense of the true gospel. Heed Jordan's recommendations and you'll have read through Galatians--conveniently printed as an appendix--at least 8 times before you complete From Law to Logos. Each time through, you'll have something different to watch for, and you'll become a better student of Paul for having done so.
From the Author
This book is intentionally short. My goal was to present enough information to make the average person comfortable reading this ancient letter from Christianity's most influential pastor and theologian. But I also wanted to keep the book short enough to allow room for the text of Galatians to shine.
At the end of each chapter, you are asked to re-read (and annotate) all of Galatians. This means that--if you are paying attention--you will read all of Galatians at least 8 times while you read From Law to Logos.
My hope is that the book serves as a helpful guide, and then gets out of the way so that St. Paul's message of life in Christ shines through and changes as many hearts today as it has throughout the centuries.

I'm currently in the midst of teaching a Bible study on Galatians, and wish I would have had access to this resource while doing my preparation! Highly recommended for those who will be preaching/teaching this book, as well as for those who will be looking to the book of Galatians as part of their own personal devotions or study. This book could also be used to help teach others basic principles of Bible study (especially concerning the New Testament epistles), as part of a discipleship program or church-based class.
I hope that Jordan or others will look to produce similar volumes for other books of the Bible. Appreciated and recommended.
The book takes you chapter by chapter into Galatians giving you a deeper look (perhaps a fresh look as well) at Paul the man and the circumstances that lead him to write his letter to the churches of Galatia. It also describes a great method for studying any of the Epistles. Overall this book reads as clean and crisp as its cover art looks.
Though some might find the language of this book a little dry, I thoroughly enjoyed its simplistic nature. It helped me to look at reading the Word of God in a whole new way. My hope is that Mr. Jordan will continue to write more books looking into and helping his readers to understand the Epistles. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to study the Bible.
