Studying Scripture as a community is one of the best ways to grow spiritually. I am convinced that the best way to read Galatians alongside my book is to do so in a group setting.
Below you will find a proposed plan for using From Law to Logos in your Small Group or Sunday School class, as well as a link to the free group study guide that includes a lesson plan and discussion questions for each week. You may need to adapt the schedule and contents to meet your own needs, but I hope you find this guide helpful.
Especially if you are in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, I would love to come visit your group to introduce the study, lead a chapter, or talk on any number of other topics that your group may find interesting.
Please contact me if you have any questions!
A 10 Week Group Study of From Law to Logos
It takes roughly 20 minutes to read Galatians in a single setting, though your results may vary. This is important to note on the front-end of studying Galatians with From Law to Logos because a major premise of the book is asking each member of your group to re-read Galatians in its entirety after each session. The following pace, then, assumes that your group will read one chapter of From Law to Logos and all of Galatians between each session.
I have tried to keep my chapters as short as possible, but there will be some weeks that are longer than others. The study works best when everyone has read the same chapter and has committed to reading all of Galatians between each session. This will usually require anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour spent in study outside of your normal meeting time.
