Paul’s letter to the Galatians played a central role in the Protestant Reformation, particularly in the preaching and writing of Martin Luther and John Calvin. In that tradition, this 23-part sermon series by pastor, teacher, preacher, professor, theologian, and author John Piper delivers a passionate and exegetically careful defense of the Reformation understanding of Paul’s gospel of justification by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone apart from the works of the law.
Transcripts of these audio sermons are available in The John Piper Sermon Archive (1980–2014).
