Christosis: Pauline Soteriology in Light of Deification

In this episode, we review Christosis: Pauline Soteriology in Light of Deification in Irenaeus and Cyril of Alexandria by Ben C. Blackwell and published by Mohr Siebeck. Dr. Blackwell is Assistant Professor of Christianity at Houston Baptist University. He also studied at Durham University and was a research assistant for N.T. Wright. This monograph is a revised version of Blackwell’s thesis submitted at Durham. In it, he examines whether theosis and deification, as understood by representatives of the early church, are appropriate means of describing Pauline soteriology.
