Participating in Christ: Explorations in Paul's theology and spirituality
Michael Gorman's interest, as a new Christian believer, was gripped by Colossians 1:27: 'Christ in you, the hope of glory', and thus his spiritual journey has been shaped and guided by participation in Christ. This has led to various other interesting directions and interdiscipliniary study.

World-renowned scholar Michael Gorman examines the important Pauline theme of participation in Christ and explores its contemporary significance for Christian life and ministry. One of the themes Gorman explores is what he calls 'resurrectional cruciformity'--that participating in Christ is simultaneously dying and rising with him and that cross-shaped living, infused with the life of the resurrected Lord, is life giving. Throughout the book, Gorman demonstrates the centrality of participating in Christ for Paul's theology and spirituality. This book consists of a series of essays arranged in two parts. The first part is headed 'Paul and Participation' and consists of nine chapters. Part 2 is headed 'Paul and Participation today', in two chapters. The introduction expands on both parts and descibes how the focus took shape, noting other important books on the subject. The conversation continues, and this is explored in Part 2. The primary focus of this book is an array of specific texts, though certain questions will inevitably arise. This book is a set of interconnected explorations in Paul's participatory theory and spirituality that look in depth, and in new ways, at certain crucial componants of that theology and spirituality., some of which are examined in print for the first time.
