Reforming Joy: A Conversation between Paul, the Reformers, and the Church Today

By Tim Chester

Would anyone say that the heart of the Protestant Reformation was joy? The Reformers saw that the requirement of rules and regulations by the Roman Catholic Church was in direct contradiction to Scripture’s message of joy and freedom. Similar false messages provoked the apostle Paul’s letter to the church in Galatia and continue to threaten the joy of Christians today by weighing them down with unbiblical duties and obligations. Exploring how the 16th-century Reformation was a return to the gospel joy originally preached to 1st-century Galatia, this book helps today's Christians rediscover the path to true freedom and lasting joy in Jesus.
