Product Description

By "mother tongue" Susan Eastman means the tone, metaphors, and language that Paul uses in addressing the church in Galatia that have strong maternal connotations. Eastman closely examines the letter written to the Galatians finding a theme that very few have. She concludes that it is this maternal discourse demonstrates the very content of the good news. This is a different kind of commentary but one that promises to challenge, enlighten, and inform all scholars, pastors, and biblical students.

Susan Eastman is assistant professor of the practice of Bible and Christian formation at Duke Divinity School, Durham, North Carolina.

Publisher's Description

Paul??'s letter to the Galatians begins with a proclamation of deliverance from the present evil age and comes to a climax with the ringing cry ???new creation ??? The letter moves from the Galatian believers??? new identity in Christ to the implications of that identity for their life together.

Susan Eastman here argues that Galatians 4: 12???5: 1 plays a key role in this movement: it displays the power of God??'s act in Christ, apart from the law, not only to generate the Galatians??? new life in Christ but also to perfect it. Paul communicates to his converts the motivation and power necessary to move them from their ambivalence about his gospel to a faith that ???stands fast??? in its allegiance to Christ alone. Eastman argues that the medium and the message are inseparable. Paul??'s discourse or ???mother tongue??? ? packed with maternal images, vulnerable yet authoritative, and marked by personal suffering ? demonstrates the content of the good news.
