Description

The churches of Galatia were occupied by legalism. They needed to be liberated.
Bravely taking on false teachers like the allied forces took on the Nazis in the hedgerows, Paul assaults the religion of works and advances the gospel of freedom.
Paul's letter to all of the churches in Galatia is an amazing marshaling forward of the powerful gospel truth in the strongest words possible in order to free the Galatians from the headlong course they were on--a course that was leading them back into bondage.
In 'Authentic Christianity and the Life of Freedom', Michael Milton leads the reader through a study of the book of Galatians in order to locate the timeless truths that enable the believer to live a life of freedom in Christ and not be taken captive by false teachers. Retaining the live feel of an actual worship service at First Presbyterian Church of Chattanooga, Tennessee, where these messages were first delivered, the reader can expect an appealing mixture of faithful Bible exposition, alert concern for the times in which we live, and heartfelt pastoral application to the lives of real people.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
All pastors know that a sermon comes not only through the exegesis of the text but the exegesis of the pastor’s own soul by the Holy Spirit. These messages came as the Lord Jesus worked out His will in my own heart and life. More over, these messages came through the inspiration of the lives of my congrega tion at First Presbyterian Church of Chattanooga, Tennessee. Thank you sweet saints of God! I am humbled to be called your pastor!
Each Saturday night, in our home, I am gathered into the sweet fellowship of my wife, Mae, and our son, John Michael. I want to thank them for their en couragement to me. Each of these messages were sealed by their prayers. Thank you, my dear family. I am blessed by coming each day to a sanctuary called home.
I want to also thank our dedicated pastoral staff who support my pastorate in so many ways. Mrs. Martha Miller, my secretary, and Mrs. Joye Howard, my edi tor, have also contributed greatly to the gospel by multiplying and maximizing the ministry of the Word. My thanks to you.
