Publisher's Summary

As Christians find themselves trapped in the rhetoric of platform, influence, retweets, and fame, they need a ladder out of the fray. Many of us live in a prison of self-absorption. Shackled with pride and despair, we compare ourselves to others constantly in our frantic, unending pursuit of perfection.
Seated with Christ gets to the root of this behavior and charts a path to freedom.
Scripture says that God's beloved are seated with Christ in the heavens (Eph. 2:6), treasured by him and given a place at his table. Heather Holleman unveils what this means for us. It means we walk out on the fight for acceptance. We quit measuring ourselves against others. We leap free from cycles of shame.
Securely-seated people can ask themselves hard questions about their lives; they can deal with sin, grieve their losses, and move forward in hope. From a position of security and self-forgetfulness they can joyfully do the good works prepared for them uniquely. They can even celebrate the successes of others.
Seated with Christ is a deeply personal, liberating look at a glorious truth: that we have a place at God's eternal table.

Interesting points, backed up with a lot of quotes

I went to a seminar the author spoke at and really enjoyed it, so I decided to listen to the book. She has a wonderful tone and I liked listening to her voice, which I've found is really important with audiobooks.

While I love the points she makes, I found it to be too academic for me. She punctuates every idea with quotations from all sorts of literature. Although all are certainly relevant, I found myself getting lost in them. She is a college professor with her PhD, so I suppose I should have expected this type of writing. It's almost like listening to a term paper, complete with all citations. I definitely enjoyed some of them, especially the Bible verses, but felt she went overboard. I could see how this would be an informative and introspective group study, but it was difficult for me to grasp when split amongst my numerous car trips.

It is really amazing to think of yourself as "already seated with Christ" and at the same table as everyone else. It was definitely worth a listen, and I may check out her Ephesians study, in print first, then audio.
