Great book for getting to grips with the concept of Union with Christ.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Paul and Union with Christ PB (Paperback)
Its definitely not and easy going book, but i don't know any greek neither do i study theology academically and yet i've enjoyed reading it. Its pretty much what it says on the front cover as well. Constantine (anyone with a name like that knows what there talking about) basically goes through each instance of "in Christ", "by Christ", "through Christ" etc that there is in Pauls epistles, so although i read it from cover to cover, its definitely a book you could dip in to when you want deeper understanding on a specific verse that contains an union with christ phrase.
chances are if your looking at this book as possible purchase then its gonna be useful for you, its going to help you understand the wider context surrounding union with Christ, and then hopefully clear up any confusion you may have had about specific verses. The only complaint i have is that the chapter titles are in Greek, and theres lots of little untranslated bits of greek strewn throughout the book and so i had to work out what exactly was being referred to in the chapters (wether "in Christ" or "through Christ" etc), write it down in the margin, then keep turning back to work out what greek phrase he was on about. essentially it seems as though the author assumes some greek knowledge.
