Dogmatic Theology, Vol. 6: The Incarnation


Longman 1915

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Who is Jesus? This question has caused controversy and provoked church splits, and the answer has eluded Christians for centuries. In his volume on the incarnation, Francis J. Hall shows how the Council of Chalcedon correctly describes the “full humanity and full divinity” of Jesus and defines the boundaries of Christological speculation. The one central truth of Christianity is that the historic person, Jesus Christ, was, and is, both God and human—not less fully God than really human, and not less completely human than truly God.

Yet Hall also believes that modern critical scholarship has thrown much light upon Christological problems. The task of theology is to address modern theories and skepticism in order to fortify and enrich the Christology of the early church and the doctrine of the incarnation.

Praise for the Print Edition

The author’s learning and wide reading are as conspicuous throughout the book as is his fidelity to the point of view…

Journal of Theological Studies

Dr. Hall is eminently qualified for the task he has undertaken…his style may be commended as a model of theological writing in English. It is clear, concise, direct, dignified, and elegant.
