Book Summary of Union With Christ by Rankin Wilbourne


Christians are called not only to love God with our whole hearts and serve Him with our hands, but we are also called to love Him with our minds. This relates to young people pursuing academic learning as well as all believers who seek to know God more fully. Learning is a vital part of Christian discipleship. 

Engaging God’s World is both a primer for students entering college and an aide for seasoned Christians who value the life of the mind. Learning is seen as a spiritual calling before God through His Word. In it, the key themes of the Christian faith are explained. Additionally, insight into the place of Christian higher education in the world is explained. The reader will understand God’s providence over history through the grand story of Scripture — Creation, Fall, and Redemption — and will gain confidence in God while we live in this fallen world. Finally, wisdom regarding vocation helps the reader to walk with God and serve Him in His world.
