While the New Perspective has offered much, with all its emphasis on participation there is a danger of missing the dynamic cruciform quality of the Pauline concept. It might also privilege an anthropocentric religious reading of the New Testament, rather than a theological one. Regarding the exegesis of Philippians 3:9-11 during the Reformation, Lutherans were very concerned about Christ
making believers alive. Yet just as much as Protestant, in Catholic accounts (Salmeron) the emphasis is on suffering with a view to eschatological glorification. For these Lutherans too it is the power driving one forward, if not the glory; Catholics may believe in a theologia crucis for this present life.
