Contributor(s): Gregersen, Niels Henrik [curatore [edt]]Publication details: Minneapolis : Fortress Press, 2015Description: xi, 397 p. ; 23 cmISBN: 9781451465402; 1451465408; 9781451469844; 1451469845DDC classification: 200.9 Summary: "Incarnation takes the reader on a journey from New Testament and early church views of incarnation to contemporary understandings of Christology. A prominent group of scholars explores and debates the idea of 'deep incarnation' -- the view that the divine incarnation in Jesus presupposes a radical embodiment that reaches into the roots of material and biological existence, as well as into the darker sides of creation. Such a wide-scope view of incarnation allows Christology to be meaningful when responding to the challenges of scientific cosmology and global religious pluralism"--back cover.

"This volume grew out of a symposium held in Hamlet's city of Elsinore in August 26-29, 2011, sponsored by the John Templeton Foundation and organized in collaboration with the Faculty of Theology at Copenhagen University", p. ix.
