This book explores the apostle Paul´s temple, priesthood, sacrificial, and worship language with a special interest in how metaphors are powerful vehicles for theological transformation. The methodology of this study combines perspectives from cognitive linguistics, the social-sciences, and rhetorical criticism. In the final synthesis, it is discovered that common factors among Paul ´s cultic metaphors include an interest in devotion to God, the significance of the body, and the potential for the reshaping of the mind and perception.
