Biblical translations are increasingly becoming paraphrases which often treat what was originally written with great freedom in a concern to communicate to modern audiences. So there is an urgent need for basic, simple tools for use in Bible study which bring out the original text clearly. That is the purpose of this book. Its prime aim is to discover the meaning of the text of Paul's letter to the Galatians in the context of the first century, when it was written. It does not discuss academic or theological questions at length, because that so often puts people off. It concentrates on what Paul wrote. Paul's letter to the Galatians is the most passionate document in the New Testament. It's author's personality blazes out of every sentence and his deep feelings about what he writes are clear to the most casual reader. However, the emotion often makes Paul's thoughts difficult to follow. Here is a guide which explains the obscurities and makes the course of the argument clear. The text is printed in the author's literal translation with explanatory notes; there is also a helpful introduction and a guide to further reading. A companion volume on the Letter to the Hebrews is also available. C.R. Hume read Greats at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, later going on to a career in education.
