Christianity Today’s 2014 Book Award for Biblical Studies: “Paul and Union with Christ” by Con Campbell
Paul and Union with Christ: An Exegetical and Theological Study is among several books from this year that Christianity Today hand-picked as "most likely to shape evangelical life, thought, and culture."
Craig L. Blomberg had this to say about Paul and Union with Christ:
Campbell tackles a massive topic on which no consensus has ever been reached. He covers the waterfront in terms of judicious analysis of the relevant Scriptures, and he adopts sensible, convincing, multifaceted conclusions. Yet for all its learnedness, the book is so carefully structured and clearly written that the reader marvels at his argument's overall simplicity and persuasiveness.
Read an excerpt from Paul and Union with Christ, in which Campbell points out the essential ingredient in Paul's theological framework.
