Publisher's Description

As Christians find themselves trapped in the rhetoric of platform, influence, retweets, and fame, they need a ladder out of the fray.

Many of us live in a prison of self-absorption. Shackled with pride and despair, we compare ourselves to others constantly in our frantic, unending pursuit of perfection.

Seated with Christ gets to the root of this behavior and charts a path to freedom.

Scripture says that God’s beloved are seated with Christ in the heavens (Eph. 2:6), treasured by Him and given a place at His table. Heather Holleman unveils what this means for us.

It means we walk out on the fight for acceptance. We quit measuring ourselves to others.We leap free from cycles of shame.

Securely-seated people can ask themselves hard questions about their lives; they can deal with sin, grieve their losses, and move forward in hope. From a position of security and self-forgetfulness they can joyfully do the good works prepared for them uniquely. They can even celebrate the successes of others.

Seated with Christ is a deeply personal, liberating look at a glorious truth: that we have a place at God's eternal table.

Editorial Reviews

"Seated with Christ is a breath of fresh air! As a young wife with 3 boys, I found myself living this hamster wheel of approval, pressure, criticism, and the quest for a picture-perfect social media life. Heather Holleman reminds of what the Bible says about life and how we are to view it and live it. If you feel weighed down by the burdens of this world, read this book as a reminder of who Christ has made you to be. I highly recommend it!

I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review."
