Incarnation, the heartbeat of Christianity.

Where would we be if God had not come in the flesh? What difference does it make to us? For some it is such a ridiculous idea that God could have anything to do with this world and its distant and sinful creatures, for others, me included it is the very heartbeat of our faith.

I Have just been reading the preface of Divinity and Humanity by Oliver Crisp and came across this:

‘Since the Incarnation is an essential constituent of Christian teaching. Removal of the Incarnation from Christology is like removal of the heart from a living human being.’
