Union with Christ Book Review:

Winner of the 2017 Christian Book Award for New Author Named one of the top books of 2016 by John Piper's Desiring God ministry To experience why the gospel is good news and answer life’s most foundational questions about identity, destiny, and purpose, we must understand what it means to be united to Christ. If you are a Christian, the Bible says that Christ has united his life to yours, that you are now in Christ and Christ is in you. This almost unfathomable truth is the central theme of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Yet few Christians today experience or enjoy this reality. Union with Christ reveals the transformational power of this ancient doctrine while addressing the basic questions of the human heart: Who Am I? Why Am I Here? Where Am I Headed? How Will I Get There? Nothing is more practical for living the Christian life than union with Christ. The recovery of this reality provides the anchor and engine for your life with God—for your destiny is not only to see Christ, but to actually become like him.

Living in Union with Christ Book Review:

Leading New Testament theologian Grant Macaskill introduces Paul's understanding of the Christian life, which is grounded in the apostle's theology of union with Christ. The author shows that the exegetical foundations for a Christian moral theology emerge from the idea of union with Christ. Macaskill covers various aspects of Christian moral theology, exploring key implications for the Christian life of the New Testament idea of participatory union as they unfold in Paul's Letters.

Paul and Union with Christ Book Review:

Paul and Union with Christ fills the gap for biblical scholars, theologians, and pastors pondering and debating the meaning of union with Christ. Following a selective survey of the scholarly work on union with Christ through the twentieth century to the present day, Greek scholar Constantine Campbell carefully examines every occurrence of the phrases ‘in Christ’, ‘with Christ’, ‘through Christ’, ‘into Christ,’ and other related expressions, exegeting each passage in context and taking into account the unique lexical contribution of each Greek preposition. Campbell then builds a holistic portrayal of Paul’s thinking and engages contemporary theological discussions about union with Christ by employing his evidence-based understanding of the theme. This volume combines high-level scholarship and a concern for practical application of a topic currently debated in the academy and the church. More than a monograph, this book is a helpful reference tool for students, scholars, and pastors to consult its treatment of any particular instance of any phrase or metaphor that relates to union with Christ in the Pauline corpus.

Providence Book Review:

New from Best-Selling Author John Piper From Genesis to Revelation, the providence of God directs the entire course of redemptive history. Providence is “God’s purposeful sovereignty.” Its extent reaches down to the flight of electrons, up to the movements of galaxies, and into the heart of man. Its nature is wise and just and good. And its goal is the Christ-exalting glorification of God through the gladness of a redeemed people in a new world. Drawing on a lifetime of theological reflection, biblical study, and practical ministry, pastor and author John Piper leads us on a stunning tour of the sightings of God’s providence—from Genesis to Revelation—to discover the allencompassing reality of God’s purposeful sovereignty over all of creation and all of history. Piper invites us to experience the profound effects of knowing the God of all-pervasive providence: the intensifying of true worship, the solidifying of wavering conviction, the strengthening of embattled faith, the toughening of joyful courage, and the advance of God’s mission in this world.

Horton covers the nature of this union, exegetical development of the concept, and both historical visions and contrasting paradigms of it. He also draws connections between a Christian’s ongoing union with his or her Savior and grace, ontology, essence and energies, and covenant—an altogether masterful sketch of a beautiful and mysterious spiritual reality.

Union with Christ Book Review:

This is a print on demand book and is therefore non- returnable. How can a person who lived nearly two thousand years ago radically change a human life here now? How can Jesus of Nazareth radically affect us, as persons, to the depths of our being? How can he reach out over the great span of time that divides us from him and change us so profoundly that we become "new creatures" in him? The answer, according to the Apostle Paul, lies in the fact that Jesus Christ enters into union with us. Lewis B. Smedes believes that union with Christ is at once the center and circumference of authentic human existence. Union with Christ is Smedes' probing and sustained exegetical study of what Paul means when he speaks of our being in Christ and Christ being in us. Hailed as "a thoughtful, discerning, and thoroughly scriptural study" when it was first published in 1970 under the title All Things Made New, the book has been greatly streamlined in this edition. By judiciously cutting away what now strikes him as "scholarly clutter," Smedes has produced a carefully condensed version of his earlier work while retaining its basic substance.

Union with Christ Book Review:

This book introduces the English-speaking world to the new Finnish interpretation of the theology of Martin Luther, initiated by the writings of Tuomo Mannermaa of Helsinki University. At the heart of the Finnish breakthrough in Luther research lies the theme of salvation. Luther found his answer to the mystery of salvation in the justifying work of Christ received through faith alone. But Protestant theology has never enjoyed a consensus on how to interpret the Reformation doctrine of justification by faith. In opposition to the traditional forensic understanding of justification, Mannermaa argues that for Luther "Christ is really present in faith itself." Mannermaa's interpretation of Luther's view of justification is thus more ontological and mystical than ethical and juridical. As such, his work challenges a century of scholarly opinion concerning a foundational doctrine of Protestant theology.

Union with Christ Book Review:

Union with Christ is the central truth of the whole biblical teaching about salvation. The entirety of our relationship with God can be summed up in this doctrine. Yet when people ask what this union actually is, we flounder. The incarnation shows that God has made us to be united with him, and God has given us his Word to enable us to understand the nature of this union. Set out with Robert Letham to explore this doctrine from Scripture using help from the church fathers to modern theologians.

Union with Christ in the New Testament Book Review:

This book is a study of the union between God and those he has redeemed, as it is represented in the New Testament. In conversation with historical and systematic theology, it is argued that this union is consistently represented by the New Testament authors as centring on the idea of a covenant, with believers' experience of God specifically mediated by Jesus, the covenant Messiah. His mediation of divine presence is grounded in his own being, in the realdivinity and real humanity that theological traditions have affirmed, and is realised by the Holy Spirit, who unites believers to him in faith. His personal narrative of death and resurrection is understoodin relation to the covenant by which God's dealings with humanity are ordered. When united to him, believers are transformed, not just morally or socially, but also in the life of their minds.

Principles of Union with Christ Book Review:

Thirty selected devotional readings about a Christian's relationship to Christ gleaned from the writings of Charles G. Finney Though Charles Finney is most often associated with evangelism and revival, his heart yearned over the Christian who, though forgiven of past sins, still lived in bondage to sinful habits. L.G. Parkhurst has carefully selected thirty brief but powerful readings from Finney, showing how freedom comes to a Christian only through a relationship with Christ. Chapter titles include: • Jesus My King • Jesus My All in All • Jesus My Strength • Jesus My Hope • Christ My Rock This new book is similar in format to Finney's Principles of Prayer, also edited by Parkhurst.

Our Union with Christ Book Review:

God loves you incredibly, faithfully, and with a kind of love that is beyond compare. In fact, God wants you to so thoroughly understand and be encompassed by His love that He gave you a picture of it! God reveals this picture in the God-ordained covenant of marriage. While Our Union with Christ is not a typical book on marriage, it reveals the relationship Jesus has with His Church. The apostle Paul speaks of the marriage relationship between a husband and wife and Christ and the Church in Ephesians 5 and refers to it as a “great mystery.” Author and pastor Duane Sheriff shares this epic love story and revelation that will illuminate your union with Jesus. These truths will establish and secure you in God’s eternal love and abiding care, and you will never again doubt God’s goodness toward you. As you come to know by the Spirit the great mystery, you will grow in intimacy with the Lord, your faith will soar, and you will experience the peace of God like never before.

Ineffable Union With Christ Living in the Kingdom Book Review:

The articles and speeches found in this book are a selected collection Rufus Moseley wrote between the years 1927 and 1937. They detail the journey of a man of God who first came to Christ in 1889, received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit in 1910, and began a lay ministry that would in time extend across the United States and overseas. The theme of these articles is living in the Kingdom of God in the here and now, what Moseley was fond of calling "Ineffable union with Christ." It was his contention that each believer has promised to them the ability to live in daily, moment-by-moment conscious union with Jesus that will produce a life of joy on an unparalleled level. Also calling this union the "Life as Love," meaning that as one lives in that joy and gives out God's perfect love and nothing but that love, the union will deepen. A deep secret of the Kingdom, Moseley contended, was that we are forced to realize that we live in what we give out; as such, to give out anything less than Christ's perfect love takes one out of intimate fellowship with Him. If we give out evil to anyone, we live in it ourselves until we repent and return. It is no exaggeration to say that the writings of J. Rufus Moseley read like new Epistles of John. The sheer depth of the revelation that the Holy Spirit gave him of this union was indeed decades ahead of his time. A towering figure in his day, it is time the great gifts he had to share are once more available to Christians today. As you read his folksy, humble words and partake of the Spirit contained therein, you will, I believe, find yourself asking for that Perfect Love and realize as Rufus Moseley did, that God is a good God, a loving Father who wants the very best for his children, and is more willing to offer it than we are to ask for it.
