Chapter Seven: “Baptized into Christ: Romans 6:3-4—the Text on Baptism and Participation”
Tell us about your connection to the honoree, Michael Gorman.
How did you choose your topic for the book, baptism and participation in Romans?
Michael has done as much as anyone to emphasize faith as participation and the significance of the death of Christ. The text I chose (Romans 6) is in my estimation the most important text on both.
Can you share more about your essay, “Participation in Christ in 1 Peter”?
Did you know, Klyne was the recipient of a collection of essays in HIS honor too!
