"While the topic of union with Christ has been engaged at the academic level, I've hoped all the while that someone would make this important truth accessible to all Christians. Dave Hickman has done just that. With wit and keen intellect, Hickman moves us from the fact of our union with Christ to living out the reality of our union with Christ. May Christians no longer strive for a Jesus "out there" but instead realize his presence within our midst."

"Dave Hickman possesses keen insight into deep truth and has a remarkable ability to make clear what all Christians need to know to grow up into union with Christ, which is so much more than escaping judgement by praying a simple, one-time prayer. This is a fine, well-written, and most welcome book."

Dave Hickman reconnects us with Christianity's deepest longing -- "that all might be one...I in them and you in me!" Dave reveals his heart to us, and in it we see ourselves. Enjoy his journey, the journey of the church, and our own invitation from Christ to be Closer Than Close.
