False teachers had infiltrated the churches in Galatia, attacking Paul's authority as well as the gospel he preached. So Paul's letter to the Galatians is not only a defense of his authority as an apostle, but also a celebration of the remarkable grace offered through Jesus Christ.

John Stott's teachings from The Message of Galatians are offered here as brief devotional readings suitable for daily use. Designed as a church resource for small groups, this book includes nine weekly studies that take us passage by passage through Galatians, allowing readers to enjoy the riches of Stott's writings in a new, easy-to-use format.

"Nothing would have been more important to John Stott than to get the words of the title in the right order. We are reading the Bible with John Stott, not just reading John Stott on the Bible. For in his preaching as in his writing, John Stott's greatest gift was to help people see and hear clearly what the Bible itself actually says, and then, of course, to challenge us as to how we should respond to what we see and hear. Not all of us possess the complete works of John Stott. But we do possess the complete Bible. These sensitively edited extracts from Stott's writings will not only introduce new readers to the riches of his biblical exposition (and make them hungry for more), but will surely also introduce them to riches of God's word they had not seen before."

Christopher J. H. Wright, international ministries director, Langham Partnership

"No one I have known has loved, preached, taught and lived the Bible any more than John Stott. He often quoted Spurgeon's comment that we should seek for our very blood to become 'Bibline'; so seriously should we soak in Scripture in order to know and live it. This new series will give us daily help in just such living."

Mark Labberton, president, Fuller Theological Seminary, author of Called

"A pastor once said he would crawl five hundred miles to hear John Stott preach, and this book shows you why. John Stott explains the Scriptures with a brilliant mind, a pastor?s heart, and a soul gripped by the beauty, glory and love of Jesus."

Greg Jao, vice president and director of campus engagement, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship
More

John R. W. Stott (1921–2011) has been known worldwide as a preacher, evangelist, and communicator of Scripture. For many years he served as rector of All Souls Church in London, where he carried out an effective urban pastoral ministry. A leader among evangelicals in Britain and the United States and around the world, Stott was a principal framer of the landmark Lausanne Covenant (1974).

Stott's many books have sold millions of copies around the world and in dozens of languages. His best-known work, Basic Christianity, has sold two million copies and has been translated into more than sixty languages. Other titles include The Cross of Christ, Understanding the Bible, The Contemporary Christian, Evangelical Truth, Issues Facing Christians Today, The Incomparable Christ, Why I Am a Christian, and Through the Bible Through the Year, a daily devotional. He has also written eight volumes in The Bible Speaks Today series of New Testament expositions.

Whether in the West or in the Majority World, a hallmark of Stott's ministry has been expository preaching that addresses the hearts and minds of contemporary men and women. Stott was honored by Time magazine in 2005 as one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World" and was named in the Queen’s New Years Honours list as Commander of the Order of the British Empire. In 1969, Stott founded the Langham Trust to fund scholarships for young evangelical leaders from the Majority World. He then founded the Evangelical Literature Trust, which provided books for students, pastors, and theological libraries in the Majority World. These two trusts continued as independent charities until 2001, when they were joined as a single charity: the Langham Partnership. Langham's vision continues today to see churches in the Majority World equipped for mission and growing to maturity in Christ through nurturing national movements for biblical preaching, fostering the creation and distribution of evangelical literature, and enhancing evangelical theological education.
