Inhabiting the Cruciform God: Kenosis, Justification, and Theosis in Paul’s Narrative Soteriology

by Andrea Elizabeth

I caught the above title by Michael Gormon that was dropped on Facebook. The introduction found in the  Kindle sample explains that the four chapters  deal with our participation in Christ’s kenosis, justification: participating in His crucifixion (He says justification is a very debated topic currently.), holiness, and nonviolence. I’m interested in his appeal to the Eastern Church for his explanations of theosis and wonder if I’ll agree with his last point. Apparently he is a Methodist, so maybe he’s joining Wesley in looking east.
