In his book, Pennington takes a close look at the book of Galatians, which has been a foundational source of Christian doctrine, proclamation and practice. As it was in Paul’s day, so today there is another gospel circulating in the halls of Christian academia seeking to dethrone Jesus once and for all, as the only way, the only truth, the only life. The book of Galatians clearly defines the dangerous errors and trends we find even in the exercise of modern Christianity.

The 25 daily Advent devotionals in Journey to Christmas will help you remember and reflect on the reason for the season. Allow God to speak into your life as you journey toward Christmas.
