I am looking for books that deal with the subject of Christian inheritance. Something that focus' on who we are in Christ, what we are predestined for. I am working on a project that teaches a new Christian who they are, and what God has called them to be. This is the best I can explain what type of info I am looking for. I am not sure how even to go about searching this in logos.

Sounds to me like you need to read St. John Climacus.Smile And to think it's traditional reading in Lent.Wink

Would it be in something I already have, if not where do I get it?

John Climacus The Ladder of Divine Ascent is not currently available in Logos. They should get it!

EDIT: Incidentally, it's also available here (in a different translation): http://www.prudencetrue.com/images/TheLadderofDivineAscent.pdf

I like the 20th Century Swedish Novel, The Hammer of God, available at Vyrso (in English) at http://vyrso.com/product/20953/the-hammer-of-god-revised-edtion .

I saw http://vyrso.com/product/22910/who-do-you-think-you-are-finding-your-true-identity-in-christ advertised recently.

I know nothing about the book but, from its description, it may have some relevant insights.

Hi Blair!

One of the best discourses on "IN CHRIST" is found in the first 3 chapters of Paul's Letter to the Ephesians. Using LOGOS to develop a good exegetical summary for what you need is a great starting point. You could practically write your own book to meet your needs! I don't have the time at the moment to link to the following, but all are in LOGOS. The bits and pieces that you can pull out of most of these resources are real jewels.
