This book is a worthwhile investment, that I will consult often. The topic of our position ‘in Christ’ is such a glorious one to explore. Each of the 19 essays is a book in itself with a different style and perspective. There is a freedom and a generosity of spirit that prevails throughout, reminiscent of 1 Corinthians 2:9,10, 12b. After 550 pages we have still only scratched the surface. It has motivated me to deepen my understanding and enjoyment of this wonderful truth of being ‘in Christ’.
