One with Christ.
Marcus Peter Johnson.
Crossway Books has never let me down and this book is no exception. It is nice to be able to pick up a book solely on the publisher and be assured of a great book.
Johnson argues that the foundation of soteriology, our justification & sanctification, are rooted in our union with Christ. This is not some modern pop-evangelical ‘relationship’ vs ‘religion’ type of book but instead is delves deep into the doctrine of relationship.
Book InfoOne with Christ: An Evangelical Theology of Salvation
by Marcus Peter Johnson
Despite our love for the Bible, emphasis on the cross, and passion for evangelism, many evangelicals ironically neglect that which is central to the gospel. In our preaching, teaching, and witnessing, we often separate salvation from the Savior.
Looking to the Scriptures and church history, Marcus Johnson reveals the true riches of our salvation by reintroducing us to the foundation of our redemption–our mysterious union with the living Christ.
Marcus Peter Johnson (PhD, University of Toronto) is assistant professor of theology at Moody Bible Institute. Along with writing his doctoral dissertation on union with Christ in the theology of John Calvin, he is also the author of several scholarly essays.
