Sometimes it seems as if Christianity overpromises and underdelivers. A relationship with Jesus sounds great, but what does it mean? Disappointment and anxiety settle in as we strive to draw close to a God who often seems out of reach.
Dave Hickman was chasing that elusive God until he stumbled upon a foundational truth that often goes overlooked: God isn't looking for a relationship with us in the way we usually think of relationships. God takes up residence in us, inviting us to die to ourselves and become a new creation in him. Where we imagine a relationship between two individuals, God invites us into something infinitely more intimate: union with Christ.

But what if being close to you isnt good enough for Jesus? What if he wants to be closer than close? Instead of simply having a personal relationship with you, what if Jesus longs to be perfectly one with you instead?
In this achingly bold and beautiful book, pastor, scholar, friend, and now author, Dave Hickman, invites you into his personal journey from striving to abiding, anxiety to peace, weariness to rest; from having a relationship with Jesus to awakening to the freedom of his union with Christ. Through careful attention to Scripture, personal stories, and everyday examples, join Dave as he guides you into the depths of the mystery of your personal and corporate union with Christ. In doing so, you, too, can awaken to the wonder and freedom that is already yours in Christ.
He suggests that being close isnt enough for Jesus. Perhaps He wants to be closer than close. What if He wants to be perfectly one with you instead?
Hickman, a minister and scholar, bravely shares his story of moving from just a relationship with Jesus to becoming one with our Lord. Through his stories, examples, and Scripture, he guides readers back to John 13:34 where Christ commands us to love one another. Is that impossible?
With thoughtful questions and references, Hickman directs us toward that answer and reminds us the answer might be closer than you think.
