Letter from Paul to the Church in Galatia and Us! by author Mary Weins is a Bible Study on the Book of Galatians. This devotional workbook is meant to help readers, whether individually or in a group, delve more deeply into those scriptures and develop a closer walk with God. It is a thorough study going through the chapters.
Beginning the study is a story which relates to the subject in each chapter. The stories were interesting. Next is the learning section. At the end are questions and insights for personal growth. This study’s length determines on how much time the student wants to put into it. Some chapters were more interesting than others. Topics of interest for me were false prophets and what does a Christian look like.
I enjoyed the author’s writing style. It was pleasant, easy to read, and flowed well. Mrs. Weins had done her research. The book is well planned and organized. It is an interactive and helpful tool in learning more about Galatians.
I recommend this book. It would be nice both both individual and small group study. It gets a 4 out of 5 stars from me. A copy was provided by Celebrate Lit but these are my honest words.
About the Book

Author: Mary Weins
Genre: Christian Non-Fiction, Bible study

“A devotional workbook on Galatians that gives enough substance for the interactive part of the workbook. It is worthwhile for small groups or individuals.” Dr. Dennis Beatty
Draw closer to God. Revel in the knowledge that you are saved by grace, not works. Discover how Paul addressed the Galatian people when they veered from the truth back into bondage to the rules and customs of their time.
This Bible study takes you verse by verse through the book of Galatians, with insights into what occurred so many years ago yet is still relevant today. Bringing home the truth that we don’t have to perform a certain way to be accepted as heirs to Christ, Letter from Paul offers relief to those who feel pressured to live by the world’s standards.
You will be refreshed and renewed as you lean into the fact that God loves you just as you are. Yes, He has given us the commandments, but He doesn’t pile additional rules on us that we can’t possibly follow. Instead, He gives us grace. And mercy. And love.
“Galatians is about the difference between salvation by works and salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. It is not about obeying all the rules versus having a good time. It is about a personal relationship with our Creator and Savior.” – Mary Weins

Letter from Paul: to the Church in Galatia…and Us!
As a preacher’s kid, I was brought up in a strict, structured home environment. This upbringing created a harsh view of Christianity and an overwhelming fear of hell, fire, and damnation for me.
It was not until years later that I found a church emphasizing God’s love. I read the Word and prayed daily and began to develop a close, personal relationship with God. But fear kept haunting me until I really got into Galatians and broke it down, verse by verse. The book of Galatians is a crucial book of the Bible for me because it emphasizes God’s love and forgiveness and provides assurance that, even though I mess up at times, God still loves me!
It is my hope and prayer that you, too, can embrace the beautiful message of love and acceptance contained in Galatians and apply it to your life. When we fully submit and trust God for our lives, an overwhelming peace envelops us. We no longer need to fear Him. He is a loving God who provides all our needs and protects, encourages, comforts, and directs us. He is our heavenly Father, our constant companion, and a friend who really does have all the right answers.
Living in a right relationship with God dramatically changes the way we view ourselves and the world. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (2 Cor. 5:17 KJV).
Written in a down-to-earth, easy-to-read approach, the Bible studies contained in Letter from Paul highlight the main points covered in each chapter of Galatians.
It is my hope and prayer that this book will erase the doubts and fears of Christians who question their salvation or fear that they are not good enough to maintain it and to point the way for the unsaved to realize how easy it is to become a child of God.
