In this groundbreaking study of Pauls soteriology, Michael Gorman builds on his influential Cruciformity: Pauls 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. / A richly synthetic reading of Paul. . . . 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. Gormans important book points the way forward for understanding the nonviolent, world-transforming character of Pauls gospel. / Richard B. Hays, Duke Divinity School
