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 summarises and interacts 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. Oakes also interacts with Galatians-related aspects of the recent heated debates around 'Justification Theory' and the 'Faith of Christ'. Oakes uses his particular expertise to consistently examine issues in the question of how they 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.
