Book Description

Derived from Michael Horton’s recently released The Christian Faith, this digital short presents a full theological investigation into the biblical concept of union with Christ. Horton covers the nature of this union, exegetical development of the concept, and both historical visions and contrasting paradigms of it. He also draws connections between a Christian’s ongoing union with his or her Savior and grace, ontology, essence and energies, and covenant---an altogether masterful sketch of a beautiful and mysterious spiritual reality.

5.0 out of 5 stars great deep book January 27, 2014

I loved the depth and richness of Horton's writing. The wording stretches the reader a bit but it's a good stretch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beginning and ending great June 13, 2013

It seemed like Horton was writing a defense paper which is fine. What I had trouble with is determining when he was using quotes to support or argue. He used quotes to do both, but he got into such detail in his paper that I could not tell.

In short, it is not a light read, and is suited for a seminary student. If this was meant for an every day Joe, Horton would be well served to either use opinion language so that the reader will know what he is supporting and what he is against, or just come out and explicitly state that.

I still have given this four stars because the beginning and ending were so good.

This is a great book to slowly go through with a group of people.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True 5 Star Book April 20, 2013
Verified Purchase
There are books that often lack some good conclusions, or unfairly compare theologies or ideas, but the is one book that I wish every believer could read and re-read. (I am in my second reading and still soaking in the wonder of our union with Christ. I give it a top rating for a superb approach that takes on a topic that seems simplistic but looks in all the corners for the mystical views, the heresies, the side-tracked views and the Reformational Concept (which is the basis of this book). The WWJD fad sadly exists still today and this book (without directly addressing the fad) shoots a lot of justified holes in the WWJD fad by pointing out that Jesus is NOT some separate entity that we are trying to figure out what He would do and then go our own ways (in our own merits) and imitate Him. This books is rich (and I mean RICH) with Scripture and theology, and thoughts on the divine union we have in Christ and Christ in us. I loved nearly every page of the book and looking back it seems I highlighted over 1/3 of the book with the great quotes, the systematic theology, and the notes.
I do not remember a Bible or seminary course that taught me as much about our union with Christ as this powerful book does in one volume. I think if each Christian were to read this book (and even teach it in Sunday School for Adults and youth) we would have a Church that understands the wonder and joy and mystery of the divine Trinity at work from Father, in the Son, through the Holy Spirit. This is "chart-topper" book. Some people may find the reading a little tough at times and may not know all the fathers of the church, but that is OK. The author does a very good job in explaining their views and even where some solid teachers (Luther and Calvin for instance) differed on their points of understanding and yet those difference are used to bring clarity. Buy the BOOK! Teach the concepts to your church. Live the Union with Christ!
