How God became human in the Christ child of Bethlehem is a mystery. It is difficult to understand and harder to explain. Theologians use complex technical language in attempts to describe what surpasses and frustrates our language and understanding. In this book, Adam Hamilton explores the why and to what end questions of the Incarnation: Why would God come to us in Jesus? What was the purpose of the Incarnation? How are we meant to respond to the Incarnation, to God’s coming to us in Jesus, today?
Each chapter of the book considers one or more of the names or titles used by the gospel writers as they introduce the story of Jesus: Lord, Messiah, Saviour, Emmanuel, Light of the Word and Word Made Flesh. As Adam Hamilton explores these titles for Jesus, he invites readers to reflect on the significance of Jesus’ incarnation to our lives and world today. Written during the COVID-19 pandemic, this book speaks to the experience of contemporary Christians as we reflect on the world-changing significance of the child we celebrate at Christmas.
