Union With Christ-Book Review

About The Book (provided by Litfuse)...

Nothing is more basic or central to knowing and enjoying God than Union with Christ.
Have you ever had difficulty connecting what you know to be true about God with how you feel or how you live each day? Have you ever longed to change but just felt stuck?
The Bible makes a stunning claim: God has provided a way for your life to be united to Christ’s. What does that mean? Is it really possible for me, now? What would it look like?
In Union with Christ, Rankin Wilbourne makes union with Christ accessible and beautiful, for you. Union with Christ is not an abstract idea. It is a powerful reality. And recovering a sense of your union with Christ can change everything for you, like finally putting on a pair of desperately-needed glasses.
Discover how coming to see your life through the lens of union with Christ can help bridge that gap between your head and your heart, between your belief and your experience. Union with Christ is what we most need in order to know and enjoy God.
About The Author...
Rankin Wilbourne grew up in Louisiana and was educated at the University of Mississippi and Princeton Theological Seminary. He is now the senior pastor of Pacific Crossroads Church in Los Angeles. As a former commercial banker, Rankin understands the "gap" between the gospel preached on Sunday and the world people face on Monday. Leading a thriving church in a city driven by stories, he's concerned with drawing connections between what we believe and how we live. Rankin and his wife, Morgen, reside in Los Angeles with their three children.

And I Thought...
A good and deep read.  Not short simple or fast. This is not a devotional book.

The reader needs to dig in to get the meat of  this subject.  To have 'real' Union With Christ is what we all as Believer should desire.

This book provides resources that will provide the reader with answers to some of the questions that many of us ask...
                Who am I?  Why am I here?  Where am I headed?  How will I get there?
This would be a great book for a group study.  There are no real study questions but I think that a group discussion would make the reader dig a bit deeper.

Union With Christ would make a great gift is the type of book to keep in your library   for future reference and deeper study.

I received a complimentary copy of Union With Christ from Litfuse.
