What Think Ye of Christ? Being Lectures on the Incarnation and Its Interpretation in Terms of Modern Thought


Macmillan and Co. 1916

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The purpose of these lectures is a simple one. For over 2,000 years the world has been confronted with a great question, “What think ye of Christ?” Every generation, every individual, must answer it according to his power. Indifference to it, though so common, is impertinent and should be impossible: for Jesus is too large a figure, and his church too real a fact, for any to disregard them. Our answer may be “the Christ of God,” or it may be “the Galilean impostor.” There is no middle way.

The Incarnation is the supreme fact of life. On it must be based, from it must be built up, the whole harmony of our being. And its importance will lie not least in this, that it is not a fact alone, but a symbol, a seal, a sacrament—a symbol that denotes the eternal union of men with God, a seal that guarantees to them the sure hope of such union, a sacrament whereby it may even now be obtained. Charles E. Raven explores these themes, and more, in five lectures on the Incarnation.
