Only an idiot thinks God could or would ever become a human being…
But Christians claim that the Creator of the Universe clothed himself in mortal human flesh as Jesus of Nazareth, the rabbi from Nazareth who lived life as a Jew, walking the dusty roads of ancient Israel for about a third of a century—all the while equating himself with God.
Christians have said for centuries that this same person will bear his human form forever in his resurrected, glorified state. They’ve said that it’s not only possible for God to immerse himself into the very nature of mortal humanity, it was mandatory for him to do so.
Debates about this subject aren’t new, of course. About one thousand years ago Anselm, the Archbishop of Canterbury, tackled this thorny subject in a remarkable essay called Cur Deus Homo.
Today, in the 21st century, ISV Foundation Executive Director Dr. William Welty re-examines Anselm’s classic theological apologetic in a fresh, new way.
By the time you’ve finished reading Anselm Writes Again, you’ll know how, why, and to what end God became a mortal human being in the person of Jesus of Nazareth, the most remarkable man who ever walked the face of the earth.
