We Were Lost. Now We’re Found…in Him. Everyone has experienced isolation and alienation. We lost more than a nice home when we were banished from Eden. We lost relationship with God and with each other. But then God did the unthinkable. The Son of God became the Man Christ Jesus: one of us that we might be united to him. In Found in Him, Elyse Fitzpatrick explores the wonder of the incarnation and the glory of our union with Christ, offering us a sure path to ultimate acceptance and true belonging through the power of the gospel. Endorsements “Busy Christians in an iPhone age can look at Christ as though he were the battery charger and we are the smartphone. We ‘plug into’ Jesus during a quiet time, then go out and live on that energy until our spiritual batteries run dry—then it’s back to the next quiet time, conference, or retreat. But this is not a metaphor the Bible invites us to use when it speaks of our union in Christ. He is the vine; we are the branches. In her newest and perhaps most important work, my friend Elyse Fitzpatrick describes this beautiful union we have with our Savior and the joys of drawing from the Vine. I highly recommend this exceptional book!” —Joni Eareckson Tada, Founder and CEO, Joni and Friends International Disability Center “Every temptation to sin is, at its root, a temptation to disbelieve the gospel. This is why Elyse’s book is so important. Our failure to lay aside the sin that so easily enslaves us is the direct result of our refusal to believe in the rich provisional resources that are already ours in Christ—we’re not believing that by virtue of our Spirit-wrought union with Christ, everything we need and long for we already possess. Elyse shows that Jesus sweepingly gained (and sweetly gives) all that we could possibly ask for or imagine. If the message of this book were understood and embraced, we would see a new Reformation.” —Tullian Tchividjian, Pastor, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, Fort Lauderdale, Florida; author, One Way Love: Inexhaustible Grace for an Exhausted World
