Oak Hill student Robin Ham blogs for us from the intensive, Galatians: A letter for today, which Dr Doug Moo has been giving at the college.
As our 48 hours with Doug Moo on Galatians came to a close, I thought it would be fitting to share a couple of his closing reflections on the epistle and its significance for our lives and ministry.
Firstly, Galatians is a hugely important theological book. Now, we might say which Bible book isn't, but the apparent seriousness of the situation Paul was addressing meant that, for a letter of only six chapters, it contains a pretty high concentration of theological punch. In particular, it is loaded with fundamental perspectives on salvation-history, justification and the Christian experience, all of which we must in turn allow to inform our overall theology.

Oak Hill student Robin Ham blogs for us from the intensive, Galatians: A letter for today, which Dr Doug Moo is currently giving at the college.
As Dan Strange articulated when he introduced the Galatians conference yesterday, these Oak Hill pastors' intensives are seeking to help word-ministers be 'the best gift they can be', to pick up Paulís language in Ephesians 4. And as we tackled the heart of Paul's theological argument in Galatians today, it seemed evident this aim was taking shape in two particular ways: by sharpening our minds and by warming our hearts.
By being exposed to the teaching of Dr Moo, there was no doubt that we were being stretched. God has gifted him with a great brain, a role where he has time to think and research, as well as a real desire to serve the church.
