In his study of Galatians, Norman Grubb emphasizes that in order to find the liberated life described by Paul, we must first find ourselves as we are apart from God and for this purpose the law was given. Through the law our inability to live God’s life are exposed. Norman shows how Paul’s quest for the total truth led him to the great revelation that we are not independent, separated people who must keep the law; rather, we are inner people, joined to God, no longer controlled by outer laws, as summed up in Galatians 2:20. Norman tackles issues such as liberty versus licence, faith versus works, spontaneous living, handling temptation, and the meaning of being one with Christ in a refreshing and practical way that offers hope to all who seek answers. In his words, ‘I’m living an ordinary life but underneath I know it’s not I but Christ.
