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.
From the Back Cover
"As a pastor I am constantly on the lookout for biblical commentary that is both accessible and theologically sound. This slim volume on Galatiansis just that. With deft skill, Jordan cuts right to the heart of St.Paul's message without sacrificing one ounce of integrity. If you'relooking for a commentary that will illumine, entertain, and steer milesclear of the tedium that bogs down much biblical scholarship--look nofurther."
"Jordan's From Law to Logos is a gift to read. It offers an intelligent and contemplative re-readingof Galatians beneficial for theologian and novice alike. The reader will discover through Jordan's study of the text the gift of Christianidentity as life spent in grateful self-gift in a cosmos infused withthe faithfulness of Christ."

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.
