Editorial Reviews

Review

M. Robert Mulholland
"Both scholarly stimulation and spiritual nurturing are to be found in reading this book. Michael Gorman masterfully conjoins knowledge and vital piety -- a conjunction noted more for its absence than its presence in the academy today. Gorman interacts creatively and effectively with past and current scholarship on Paul and Pauline theology, and he provides cogent arguments against some of the special-interest readings of Paul. This book has the potential to challenge both the academy and the church to a reconsideration of Paul that could revolutionize Pauline scholarship and transform the life of the church in the world."

Frank J. Matera
"Michael Gorman has provided us with a splendid account of a forgotten factor in Pauline studies -- the origin and meaning of the apostle's spirituality. Clearly written and carefully researched, this work illustrates how the cross of Christ is the key to Paul's spirituality -- and to our own as well."

Stephen E. Fowl
"In Cruciformity Michael Gorman rigorously works through the ways in which Paul narrates himself into the ongoing drama of God's salvation revealed in the cross and resurrection. Gorman's accessible prose nicely displays how Paul comes to understand and embody a life that seeks to be conformed to the cross of Christ. In an age when spirituality is often simply a mask for self- projection and self-assertion, Gorman's Paul reminds Christians that such vital matters as faith, hope, love, and power should be shaped by the story of the crucified and resurrected one rather than by our own whims and desires. This book is readable and timely, and it will enhance the lives of contemporary Christians."

America
"This scholarly work would make good reading during Lent and Holy Week."

Pacifica
"This is a good read, and not only for those interested in Pauline studies or Christian spirituality. . . In an undemanding style without assuming detailed knowledge of Paul's letters on the part of the reader, it makes a good general introduction to the apostle's theology."
