Everywhere we look in the letters of Paul we encounter ‘in Christ.’ But how many of us know why the Apostle Paul uses this expression—or ones like it—over and over again in his letters? What is so important about being in Christ? Is it possible that when Paul talks about inChristness, he is handing us a set of keys that will open up his letters and reveal what is most essential to living the Christian life? In these 100 devotional readings, we discover why inChristness is so important and how to live an in–Christ life.
Kenneth Berding, Ph.D., is professor of New Testament at Talbot School of Theology at Biola University and author of numerous books and articles. He regularly blogs at KennethBerding.com, is editor of The Good Book Blog, and director of Bible Fluency: Sing it, See it, Study it.
Theologically rich, yet intensely practical; I felt as if Ken were providing me with a set of ‘in Christ’ lenses through which to view every facet of my life. I will revisit this book often to refocus my gaze on Christ, and all that is true of life in Him.

Understanding the meaning and significance of our new identity as believers in relationship to Jesus Christ is the number one concern of the Apostle Paul in his letters. Deep prayerful reflection on these key elements of life in Christ will transform you from the inside out.

I cannot remember the last time I read a book on union with Christ and was so convicted that I stopped and prayed. Without compromising biblical and theological depth, Berding unveils the innumerable ways union with Christ makes a real difference in the Christian life.
