Evangelicals are often accused of having a weak or inadequate view of the Incarnation and its implications for salvation, mission and other religions. Where responses to the accusations have been made, the results have been far from satisfying. Little has been written or said by evangelicals on such matters of concern. The Word Became Flesh brings together a number of prominent evangelicals to provide thorough biblical, philosophical and theological reflections on Evangelicals and the Incarnation. These papers respond not only to particular charges of neglect but also critique the incarnational theology of those who have made such charges. Particular emphasis is given to the link between the incarnation and the cross, what it means for humanity and for the Christian and church life today. • Provides wholistic biblical reflections on the Incarnation with reference to Salvation, mission, the Christian life, Scripture and the Lord’s Supper. • Contains an extensive critique of liberal theological assessments of the Incarnation and its meaning. • Interacts with orthodox protestant views, including those of John Stott on mission. • One of the few books written on this subject-area. • With contributions from Michael Ovey, Chris Green, Carl Trueman, David Peterson and Timothy Ward.
