Inhabiting the Cruciform God is a stimulating work by Micahel J. Gorman. “Theosis” does not mean “becoming God,” but rather that humans become like God by entering the Trinitarian life through the work of Christ and the Spirit. Here is the thesis of the book:
“Theosis is transformative participation in the kenotic, cruciform character of God through Spirit-enabled conformity to the incarnate, crucified, and resurrected/glorified Christ.” (p. 7)
Gorman argues that the Pauline phrase “in Christ” is shorthand for “in God/in Christ/in the Spirit.” Paul’s christocentricity is really an implicit Trinitarianism. (p. 4)
This book takes the conversation about the “new perspective” on Paul and the law to a new level.
