Gorman begins by showing that Paul viewed Christs cross as the definitive theophany of the kenotic God. He then digs into several key texts in Pauls 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 Pauls view as constituting the essence of holiness and as requiring nonviolence.
Inhabiting the Cruciform God continues Gormans innovative work toward a deeper interpretation of Pauls definition of true holiness. Each chapter includes theological reflection on the contemporary meaning of the apostles foundational message of kenosis, justification, and theosis.
