Union with Christ by Rankin Wilbourne - A Review

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.

- From the Publisher

The topic of Union with Christ is a complex idea.  The author uses a LOT of metaphors and analogies, to try to make the topic more accessible.  In my opinion, the book was to much explanation, and not enough practical advice.  It was a well written book, but for some reason it didn't resonate with me, probably because I am a concrete thinker, and as the author says at the beginning of the book, this is a topic that requires imagination. 

I received this book free of charge from the publisher via LitFuse in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
