Union with Christ by Rankin Wilbourne book review.
About the book:
Union with Christ: The Way to Know and Enjoy God (David C. Cook, July 2016)
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.

About the author: http://bit.ly/2dbQLrZ
Rankin Wilbourne grew up in Louisiana and was educated at the University of Mississippi and Princeton Theological Seminary. He is now the senior pastor of Pacific Crossroads Church in Los Angeles. As a former commercial banker, Rankin understands the “gap” between the gospel preached on Sunday and the world people face on Monday. Leading a thriving church in a city driven by stories, he’s concerned with drawing connections between what we believe and how we live. Rankin and his wife, Morgen, reside in Los Angeles with their three children.
Book Review: This book explains how we are in union with Christ…He is in us and we are in Him. This is the key to finding our identity in Christ.
Rankin’s book is well written, easy to read, and easy to understand. His examples are well documented. The truths that he is teaching are Biblically sound.
There is much one can glean from reading this book, however, I did find it difficult to hold my attention. I think, perhaps, he was so thorough in his examples that he went on a little long. Still there is a great deal of Biblical truth one can learn from this book.
I would give this book 4 stars.
