    Dr. Gorman,

    I am reading Inhabiting the Cruciform God and have a quick question. When you lecture on these topics, how do people typically respond to your arguments concerning kenosis, justification and theosis? It seems to me that most Christians have denominational stances on justification force-fed to them, and that few have any interest in becoming like God–especially if self-emptying and self-crucifixion is involved.

    So far, I agree with what you’ve written, but in a Purpose-Driven Life kind of Christian milieu where spirituality is sought for personal benefit, how do most non-scholarish Christians receive your work?

    Thank you for digging into what I believe is essential to discipleship and spiritual transformation,

    Kelly Hahn
