Overview

In this groundbreaking study of Paul’s soteriology, Michael Gorman builds on his influential Cruciformity: Paul’s Narrative Spirituality of the Cross to argue that cruciformity is, at its heart, theoformity—what the Christian tradition has called theosis or participation in the life of God. This book demonstrates that in God’s self-emptying in Christ, we are raised into his life. Gorman has written an accessible book that serves as a lens through which Paul’s theology can be read and understood, demonstrating that it is through Jesus Christ that we learn what God is really like.

Praise for the Print Edition

Gorman deftly integrates the results of recent debates about Pauline theology into a powerful constructive account that overcomes unfruitful dichotomies and transcends recent controversies between the ‘New Perspective on Paul’ and its traditionalist critics. Gorman’s important book points the way forward for understanding the nonviolent, world-transforming character of Paul’s gospel.
