Book: Union with Christ: The Way to Know and Enjoy God by Rankin Wilbourne
About the Book:
Nothing is more basic or central to knowing and enjoying God than Union with Christ. 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 paints a compelling picture of what union with Christ is, and how we are created to experience it.
I love the author’s goal for this book - to return union with Christ to a living reality, central to the life of all believers. He paints a compelling picture through images, stories and Scripture about what union of Christ is. There are so many images packed into the book in fact, that I was left struggling to land somewhere with the book. I think the weakness of the book comes in how much breadth it is attempting to address, as well as a vagueness in the application. I was left frustrated with the lack of clear and practical principles of application. In short, this book offers a great look at the centrality of union with Christ to the Christian life, but stalls a bit with helping readers pursue the experience of union with Christ.
