Heaven and earth interlock in the person of Jesus, a Jew from Nazareth.
Belief Matters is a series of easy-to-understand books designed to show that by thinking more clearly about faith, persons can love God more fully, live with confidence, and change the world. Conversational in tone, these books are reflections on major theological topics and are suitable for individual or group study.
Christ is the Incarnation of God; not only one who talks about God but also the one who is God. The idea that Christ was both divine and human will always be a mystery, and therefore many Christians prefer not to discuss it, saying that what they believe won’t change one way or the other. Maybe. But wouldn’t learning more about the Incarnation—a major biblical theme—help us think more clearly about our faith and in turn help us to love God more fully? Incarnation, the first book in William Willimon’s Belief Matters series, is a thorough, four-week study suitable for individuals or groups.
