The Incarnation

Show Summary Details


After a critical survey of the issues (O’Collins), this collection moves from biblical questions and milieu (Dearman, Wright, Fee, Aletti, and Segal) through some classical teaching and reflection on the incarnation (Coakley, Daley, and Stump), and on to theological and philosophical debates (Davis, Evans, and Leftow). It ends with some ‘practical’ applications of incarnation faith to writing, art, ethics, and preaching (Norris, Zagzebski, Brown, and Shuster). This volume proposes approaching the multi‐faceted incarnation faith in an organized and coherent way: namely, by reflecting on biblical, historical, foundational, systematic, and practical data and questions. Ch. 1 will point out links with later chapters and their place in the landscape of incarnation studies. That chapter, along with those to follow, recognizes how various issues connected with the incarnation cannot be solved with relative ease.
