9780310329053: Paul and Union with Christ: An Exegetical and Theological Study

Winner of the Christianity Today 2014 Book Award in Biblical Studies, Paul and Union with Christ fills the gap for biblical scholars, theologians, and pastors pondering and debating the meaning of union with Christ. Following a selective survey of the scholarly work on union with Christ through the twentieth century to the present day, Greek scholar Constantine Campbell carefully examines every occurrence of the phrases 'in Christ', 'with Christ', 'through Christ', 'into Christ,' and other related expressions, exegeting each passage in context and taking into account the unique lexical contribution of each Greek preposition. Campbell then builds a holistic portrayal of Paul's thinking and engages contemporary theological discussions about union with Christ by employing his evidence-based understanding of the theme. This volume combines high-level scholarship and a concern for practical application of a topic currently debated in the academy and the church. More than a monograph, this book is a helpful reference tool for students, scholars, and pastors to consult its treatment of any particular instance of any phrase or metaphor that relates to union with Christ in the Pauline corpus.

He is author of Paul and Union with Christ, Outreach and the Artist, Verbal Aspect, the Indicative Mood, and Narrative, Verbal Aspect and Non-Indicative Verbs, Not Ashamed, Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek, and Keep Your Greek. Dr Campbell is a public speaker, musician, and author, and lives in Chicago.

Review:

"For years I have taught students that one of the most important items in Paul's theological vocabulary is the two-letter word en, despite the failure of so many writers to pick it up. Now at last there is a comprehensive study that pays attention to the use of en and related terms in the whole of the Pauline corpus and incorporates the insights of contemporary scholarship. This is a valuable reference work for all students of New Testament theology." 
- I. Howard Marshall, Professor Emeritus of New Testament, University of Aberdeen

"At the heart of debate over several important theological issues, not least justification, stands a unifying theme: union with Christ. That theme almost everyone espouses but interprets differently or with remarkable vagueness. The strength of Con Campbell's book is his patient examination of the controlling expressions--what it means to be 'in Christ,' for example. Here there is no reductionism, but sure-footed guidance through the biblical evidence and sensible, even-handed, conclusions. Highly recommended."
- D. A. Carson, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"Rarely do New Testament scholars and theologians seem interested in the same thing at the same time, although until this volume the latter have done the lion's share of monograph-style treatments. Holding up the diamond, Professor Campbell explores each facet. Although readers may not agree with all of the conclusions, Paul and Union with Christ is a crucial resource for exegetical reflection and precision on such an important topic."
- Michael Horton, Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California

"With the increased prominence of attention to union with Christ in Paul in recent decades, Campbell's contribution is most welcome. Impressive for its comprehensive scope, its careful attention to exegetical detail yet with the overall theological picture also in view, and its balanced and fair conclusions, this book is bound to benefit anyone interested in this important topic."
- Richard B. Gaffin Jr., Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Emeritus, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia

"Campbell provides a lucid and lively study of union with Christ. Few authors are able to combine exegetical skill with theological acumen on such a complex topic as Campbell does here. It is a brilliant study about what a constellation of images of union, participation, identification, and incorporation into Christ actually means. Campbell's tour de force will be the authoritative book on the subject for decades to come."
- Michael F. Bird, Lecturer in Theology and New Testament, Crossway College in Brisbane, Australia
