Sons in the Son: The Riches and Reach of Adoption in Christ

Product Description

The doctrine of adoption has been sadly neglected for most of church history, with theologians turning their attention to it in only the past twenty years. Yet valuable, contemporary studies have focused primarily on etymological, cultural, and pastoral considerations, giving little to no attention to vital systematic theological concerns.

InSons in the Son Professor David Garner forwards a groundbreaking examination of the function of this permeating familial concept in terms of Pauline thought: Christology, eschatology, union with Christ, and adoption's relationship to other soteric benefits. Drawing from a biblico-theological investigation of the adoption texts, Garner explores the way in which adoption frames Pauline soteriology and defines the central familial context of redemption in Christ Jesus. Properly understood, adoption's paradigm-shifting implications extend deep and far, defining the Trinitarian, familial context of redemption in Christ, the Son of God.

Editorial Reviews

“I’m convinced that Garner’s book will be considered a theological classic of the Christian faith. . . . To say I absolutely loved it would be an understatement.”

—Dan Cruver, President, Together for Adoption

“Reading Sons in the Son is like putting on a new set of glasses that enable the reader to see the glistening beauty of God’s grace of adoption throughout the entirety of his salvation plan.”

—Nancy Guthrie, Author, Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament series

“Garner’s book may well reset the Reformed church’s thinking about the relationship of its doctrine of salvation and its doctrine of Christ.”

—Howard Griffith, Academic Dean, Reformed Theological Seminary, Washington, DC

“All future work on this subject that is so precious to the minds and hearts of Christians should reckon with this masterful treatment.”

—Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids

Editorial Reviews

“Dr. Garner’s Sons in the Son is a fascinating read on the traditionally minimized doctrine of the believer’s adoption in Christ. One does not need to agree with Garner at every point to recommend this profoundly theological and practical work. In terms of exegetical, biblical, systematic, historical, and experiential theology, Sons in the Son is a ground-breaking book that thoroughly mines the field of adoption from Scripture itself all the way to 21st-century treatments of the subject. All future work on this subject that is so precious to the minds and hearts of Christians should reckon with this masterful treatment.”
