Publisher's Description

Union with Christ is the jewel in the crown of salvation. It has many and varied facets. Indeed, the reality denoted by the words 'in Christ' is unfathomable. But the importance of this great truth is such that Christians need to seek to plumb its unsearchable depths. The present volume seeks to show how union with Christ is expounded by two New Testament writers, how it was understood by two great theologians, and how it relates to two key areas of biblical teaching, before a final chapter plots the scriptural development and structure of this great truth and its practical relevance for us today. Contributors include: Stephen Clark, Cornelis Bennema,Tim Ward, Robert Letham, John Fesko, David McKay and Paul Wells.

Editorial Reviews

This thought-provoking collection of essays examines the concept of union with Christ from exegetical, theological and practical perspectives. It is foundational in the New Testament, ubiquitous in Calvin, and is the essence of the ordo salutis. But what does it mean? The scholar-pastors who contribute to this volume help us to trace the contours of the concept, reminding us that participation in Jesus Christ is no mere academic consideration, but stands guard over every spiritual blessing enjoyed by the redeemed soul. They also help us see that while a simple phrase like 'union with Christ' can engage the deepest thinking and even stir up controversy in the church, it represents a motif which permeates Scripture and which, when considered in the Bible's own light, leads to a life dedicated to the Saviour. This is a welcome addition to the literature on the subject.

Our Reformation and Puritan forefathers understood that salvation by Christ involves union with Christ: an on-going, vital, loving relationship, begun in time, lasting through eternity. This important fact, so neglected today, was the theme of the Affinity Theological Study Conference held in Nottingham in 2015, and six out of the seven Chapters of this book are lectures given at that Conference. A final Chapter, summarising the whole, has been added by Editor Stephen Clark. This is a useful book, offering many gens for those willing to work a little for them.
