It's tempting for Christians to think they can experience God's life and power through church attendance, religious symbols and rituals, and good deeds. But as the book of Galatians makes clear, religion means nothing unless believers are connected to the source of God's life and power.
In Leading the Way Through Galatians, Michael Youssef applies Paul's message to the churches in Galatia to the challenge of living as authentic Christians in the twenty-first century. The message of the Gospel is a message of freedom from the law, freedom from bondage to sin, freedom from fear, freedom from judgment, and freedom from the need to perform and please others.
Through stories and contemporary insights, the timeless truths of Galatians will take on a new and powerful meaning as today's readers learn to apply this liberating message to everyday life and everyday situations.

His criticisms are generally aimed at the American church, but it's not just America that is suffering from moral decline and an excess of greed.
I like his style. The writing is easy to read and accessible - Michael Youssef might have a PhD, but you don't need one to read it (unlike some Christian non-fiction books I have attempted to read). And he doesn't confine himself to Galatians, but quotes from other books of the Bible to reinforce the key messages.
There is a lot of sense and wisdom in here, and I particularly like his approach to Christian self-help books: you don't need them. Instead, he calls us to invest in a stronger faith by going deeper into God's word, the Bible, and to be on our guard against anyone who preaches a gospel other than salvation through Jesus.
Michael Youssef has written three other books: Leading the Way Through Joshua, Daniel and Ephesians. If Leading the Way Through Galatians is typical of his writing, I'd recommend any of them.
