Stephen Davis criticizes John Hick's recent arguments against orthodox views of the incarnation and the Trinity. He outlines and answers Hick's specific objections to such views, as well as his positive christological and trinitarian proposals. The conclusion is reached that Hick has failed in overturning classical views of incarnation and Trinity, that his own theology of incarnation is flawed, and that his account of the Trinity reveals deep fault lines in his overall theological programme.
