Publisher Description

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.

Gorman begins by showing that Paul viewed Christ’s cross as the definitive theophany of the kenotic God. He then digs into several key texts in Paul’s epistles, presenting a new interpretation of justification as theosis. Gorman especially stresses the covenantal, participatory, and transformative character of such theosis, as well as its inherent connection to justice. The final two chapters consider theosis in Paul’s view as constituting the essence of holiness and as requiring nonviolence.

Inhabiting the Cruciform God continues Gorman’s innovative work toward a deeper interpretation of Paul’s definition of true holiness. Each chapter includes theological reflection on the contemporary meaning of the apostle’s foundational message of kenosis, justification, and theosis.
