(PUBEerdmans)"I have decided to know nothing among you, but Jesus, and him crucified" was Paul's motto before the Corinthians. Gorman recasts Christian spirituality, theology, and ethics in terms of "cruciformity" (conformity to the crucified Christ), seeing myriad repercussions for all avenues of life. 440 pages, softcover.
Most studies of Paul concentrate solely on his theology. This book breaks new ground by focusing on the source and nature of Paul's spirituality. Taking his cue from Paul's express desire to "know nothing but Christ crucified," Michael Gorman shows how Paul's personal experience of God constantly intersects with the story of the cross, an event that both reveals the cruciform character of God and shapes believers into a community of "cruciformity" (conformity to the crucified Christ). Expertly combining biblical studies and theological reflection, this noteworthy volume presents a model of the Christian life marked by faith, love, power, and hope.
