What is the Incarnation?
If you want to really understand the New Testament and the gospel, you’ve got to start with the incarnation—a truth that goes far beyond Christmas.
The miracle of Jesus’ incarnation touches on deep truths, speaking to the very nature of God and humanity. Author William Evans shows how the Bible consistently supports the incarnation as actual fact. He also describes the early church’s efforts to express this great mystery and explores some key questions about this vital doctrine and its practical implications for our daily lives.
“Concisely and accessibly, Dr. Evans demonstrates how crucial the incarnation is and how only the incarnate Son of God could save us.” -— Robert Letham, Author of Union with Christ and The Holy Trinity in Scripture, History, Theology and Worship
“Evans introduces us to both the teaching of Scripture and the loving reflections of some of the best minds of the Christian centuries. His writing will stimulate even greater love for and faith in the Lord Jesus.” -— Sinclair Ferguson, Associate Minister, St. Peter’s Free Church, Dundee, Scotland and author of numerous books including The Whole Christ and The Christian Life.
