Focusing on Paul's own statement about the Galatian crisis, Yon Kwon demonstrates that the letter is Paul's pastoral engagement with the backsliding Galatians rather than his theological altercation with his opponents. Paul deals with the crisis in Galatia by reminding the Galatians of the implications of their present deviation for their future - the 'not yet' -, instead of affirming the blessings already realized in Christ - the 'already.' Contents include: Introduction, The Context of Paul's Argument, Justification as an end-time gift, Son, seed and heir: Paul's sonship language, Paul's view of promise, Inheritance as a future blessing, Paul's Christological argument, Paul's future eschatology and the Galatian crisis, Conclusion.
