Sons in the Son

Thoroughly enjoying Dave Garner's new book on adoption, which could not be more aptly titled: Sons in the Son. What a rich treatment. Finding myself corrected. I'm reviewing it for Themelios and will say more there but may put up the occasional snippet in the meantime. Here's one.
The union of the sons in the Son grants believers full personal appropriation of the person and work of Christ, their Elder Brother. This exhaustively filial union takes on the deepest implications of solidarity and gracious brotherhood. No greater cohesion exists than the bond created by the Spirit of the Son with the sons.
--David B. Garner, Sons in the Son: The Riches and Reach of Adoption in Christ (P&R, 2016), 251
