Praise for the Print Edition

A massive compendium of information that will be valuable to anyone interested in contemporary theological trends. The review of contemporary Christologies in Part 2, for instance, provides excellent summaries of numerous recent studies. Erickson is a master of identifying the central arguments and key representatives of theological movements. Readers will find here a lucid, readable summary of conservative Christology. Erickson’s study will certainly become a standard textbook and resource in the field of Christology.

Critical Review of Books in Religion

An admirable and much-appreciated attempt to speak to [the author’s] contemporaries. The Word Became Flesh shows convincingly that an incarnational Christology of the traditional Chalcedonian type is possible and relevant today, and fits the biblical data better than any other.

Andrews University Seminary Studies

Erickson has done the church great service in both highlighting the very range of challenges to incarnational Christology and in briefly setting out the issues at stake. I would commend this book not only as an excellent starting-point for anyone wishing to grapple with these vital issues but as an important contribution in its own right.

The Evangelical Quarterly

Here is a well-informed, workmanlike overview of Christological discussion, ancient and modern, by an evangelical veteran.

J. I. Packer, Board of Governors’ Professor of Theology, Regent College

Earns a five-star rating. It is one of the most stimulating studies I have read in a long time.
