Baker Academic Union with Christ: Reframing Theology and Ministry for the Church

In Union with Christ: Reframing Theology and Ministry for the Church noted and dynamic theologian J. Todd Billings recovers the biblical theme of union with Christ for today's church, making a fresh contribution to the theological discussion with important applications for theology and ministry.

Drawing on Scripture and the thought of figures such as Augustine, Calvin, Bavinck, and Barth, Billings shows how a theology of union with Christ can change the way believers approach worship, justice, mission, and the Christian life. He explains how this union can transform the tone of theological conversation about thorny topics such as total depravity and the mystery of God, while also providing a critique and alternative to the widely accepted paradigm of incarnational ministry and explores a gospel-centered approach to social justice. Combined, these elements continually point to the life giving relationship that exists in union with Christ and how it can affect our communal lives.
