Life in Christ

by John Stott

Book cover of Life in Christ.
John Stott based his book “Life in Christ” on eight prepositions used in relationship to Christ: “through Christ,” “on Christ,” “in Christ,” “under Christ,” “with Christ,” “unto Christ,” “for Christ,” and “like Christ.” He says, “Each preposition indicates a different kind of relationship, but in each case Christ himself is at the centre.”

By explaining the meanings of these phrases, he shows the first and central place Jesus the Christ must be in a believer’s life. He states, “Christianity without Christ is a chest without a treasure, a frame without a portrait, a corpse without breath.”

The Scriptures, the information, and John Stott’s perspective contained in this book will enrich your understanding of who Jesus is and who you are “in Christ.”
