The doctrine of the Incarnation lies on the middle of Christianity. however the concept that 'God used to be in Christ' has develop into a much-debated subject in glossy theology. Oliver Crisp addresses six key concerns within the Incarnation protecting a powerful model of the doctrine, according to classical Christology. He explores perichoresis, or interpenetration, on the subject of either the Incarnation and Trinity. Over chapters Crisp bargains with the human nature of Christ after which offers an issue opposed to the view, universal among a few modern theologians, that Christ had a fallen human nature. He considers the thought of divine kenosis or self-emptying, and discusses non-Incarnational Christology, concentrating on the paintings of John Hick. This view denies Christ is God Incarnate, concerning him as basically an ethical exemplar to be imitated. Crisp rejects this substitute account of the character of Christology.
