Discover a new and unexpected way to engage with Scripture and experience the Bible not as a distant, confusing document, but as a living, breathing conversation between God and humanity that continues to speak into our ever-changing world.

Volume 2: Galatians & Ephesians

Paul was a biblical writer who didn’t shy away from controversy. He was bold, passionate, and direct, and many of his statements still stir up controversy today.

But as modern readers, we also tend to misunderstand Paul, missing the fact that his writings were BORN out of controversy: sordid affairs, ethnic and religious discrimination, cult influences, and real-life drama taking place in the newly formed communities of the early church. Though Paul’s doctrinal truths are timeless, they were inspired by very timely situations that we must understand to understand his teachings.

In Come Alive: Galatians & Ephesians, we meet two messy church communities trying to work through uncertainty, crisis, and division – a situation that hits close to home today. Discover how Paul guides these communities through differences in social class, religious background, and ethnicity and unites them around the simple, grace-filled message of the Gospel.

Two of Paul’s shorter letters, Galatians and Ephesians pack a big punch with a beautiful message of unity and life in Christ that intersects powerfully with our lives today.
