This text is designed for students and academics studying the doctrine of the incarnation. James Dunn clarifies in detail the beginnings of the belief in Christ as the Son of God and discusses the historical context of such beliefs. Exploring key titles and passages within the New Testament, he argues that the incarnation cannot simply be understood in terms of the "myth of heavenly or divine being come to earth", but should be grounded in the New Testament context of meaning. -- Review: 'an excellent presentation of a mass of complicated material...to be commended for its honest attempt to set Paul et al in the eschatological setting of the earliest Christian Gospel than reading their statements through the incarnational spectacles of later developments' (Theology).
