The doctrine of adoption has been sadly neglected for most of church history, with theologians turning their attention to it in only the past twenty years. Yet valuable, contemporary studies have focused primarily on etymological, cultural, and pastoral considerations, giving little to no attention to vital systematic theological concerns.
InSons in the Son Professor David Garner forwards a groundbreaking examination of the function of this permeating familial concept in terms of Pauline thought: Christology, eschatology, union with Christ, and adoption's relationship to other soteric benefits. Drawing from a biblico-theological investigation of the adoption texts, Garner explores the way in which adoption frames Pauline soteriology and defines the central familial context of redemption in Christ Jesus. Properly understood, adoption's paradigm-shifting implications extend deep and far, defining the Trinitarian, familial context of redemption in Christ, the Son of God.
