What a wonderful week of blogging on Galatians! Not everyone has agreed with one another as to the nature or significance of Paul’s letter – which is wonderful, as it helps us uncover the tension underlying the letter, and its promise.
Some of our bloggers are familiar to you from the last series – author Margaret McGrath, DWB Music Director, Chuck Marohnic, DWB Producer, Scott Griessel, DWB Host, Eric Elnes. Others are new to us, and we’d like to welcome them with a little more introduction:
