This guide introduces students (of all levels and in both secular and seminary contexts) to the key issues and scholarly ideas that have informed the study of Galatians. In addition to classic scholarly positions Oakes and Boakye summarise and interact with the new wave of Galatians scholars from the past ten years, who have explored a range of ideas very different from the previous main lines of enquiry.
The book also interacts with Galatians-related aspects of the recent heated debates around 'Justification Theory' and the 'Faith of Christ'. Oakes and Boakye use their particular expertise to consistently examine issues in terms of how such issues relate to mid-1st-century house churches, which are understood as groups living within the context of the socio-economic structures of small town life in the eastern Roman empire.
