Cruciform Scripture: Essays in Honor of Michael J. Gorman (Release Day! Jan 5, 2021) January 5, 2021

I am excited to introduce to you an exciting new book from Eerdmans, CRUCIFORM SCRIPTURE: CROSS, PARTICIPATION, AND MISSION (ed. Christopher W. Skinner, Nijay K. Gupta, Andy Johnson, and Drew J. Strait). These are collected essays honoring Dr. Michael J. Gorman whose life work has been an inspiration to many, including myself.

I will be running a blog series featuring contributor reflections on both their appreciation for Gorman and the substance of their essays in this book. Stay tuned for that!
