The Incarnation: An Interdisciplinary Symposium on the Incarnation of the Son of God

Synopsis

'A valuable collection of reflection on the origins of Christian belief in the incarnation, and of its consequences and presentation in the modern world... its division into manageable-sized essays makes it possible for the busy preacher to pick it up and read it in stages.' -Church of England Newspaper'This is a weighty and richly rewarding book, worthy of a place alongside the best twentieth-century monographs and volumes of essays on the greatest mystery of all.' -Brian Horne, The Tablet'Impressive not only in its unity but also in its depth of scholarship.' -Brian Horne, The TabletTwenty-four scholars from different universities, churches, and continents gathered in New York at Easter 2000 for the Incarnation Summit, a meeting exploring the belief that Jesus is the Son of God who took on the human condition. The scholars are experts in different fields; the Bible, ancient Christian writers, ancient Jewish writers, theology, philosophy, literature, modern art, and preaching. This book is the result of that meeting: a well-researched, skilfully argued, and, at times, provocative volume on the central Christian belief: the Incarnation of the Son of God.
