Book Summary of Union With Christ by Rankin Wilbourne


Many faithful followers of Jesus read the Bible regularly and build their lives around the principles found in God’s Word. However, many of those same followers do not have a full understanding of the process by which the modern translation of the Bible that they hold in their hands or read on their phone or tablet came into existence. “This study seeks to be a factual and honest account of how the Bible has been preserved and handed down to our generation.” (p. 9)

The story is full of twists and turns and full of faithful followers of Jesus who gave their lives to the effort of preserving God’s Word, striving to make it accessible for future generations to come. However, followers of Jesus must remember that “the story of how we got the Bible begins and ends with God. God is Light, the Source of Light, both physical and spiritual. Ultimately, then, the question of how we got the Bible leads us to the throne of God” (p. 201). Our study of even the process by which we have His Word available to us should cause us to worship the Lord!
