Item Description...
Central to Christianity is the work of Christ as savior of the world. In this book Geoffrey Wainwright presents the classical confession of Christ's incarnation and atoning work in ways that allow the gospel message to engage with contemporary culture. Amid social tendencies both to disown our physical nature and to be absorbed in it, Wainwright first argues that a comprehensively biblical doctrine of the Word made flesh will help to school our bodily senses as befits earthly creatures with a spiritual destiny. The incarnation shows God reaching us through sound, sight, taste, touch, and scent and inviting us to a rounded response of intellect, affections, and action. In the second half of the book the traditional description of Christ's saving work in terms of his prophetic, priestly, and royal offices is brought to bear on current concerns with knowledge and meaning, with power and authority, and with the pain of alienation and the possibility of redemption. Widely known and highly regarded in both the church and the academy, Wainwright here draws on his familiarity with doctrinal and liturgical history and his decades of experience in the ecumenical movement to offer two complementary accounts of Christ's saving work that will appeal to all who are committed to the cause of evangelical and catholic Christianity.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Real Gem  May 24, 2006
This book is a gem. In the first section, Wainwright discusses the Christian's experience of Christ-the incarnate Word of God-in the Church's liturgy through her senses and her response to those sense experiences. Catholics and Orthodox alike may find themselves thinking that this book is written by one of their own, while Protestants (I should note that Wainwright himself is a British Methodist minister) should find themselves challenged to think about sacraments in ways that may be new to them. The second section takes up the matter of the munus triplex, or Christ's threefold office as prophet, priest, and king. Here, Wainwright identifies five applications for the participation of both the individual Christian and the Church in the prophetic, priestly, and royal offices. This discussion should be thought provoking for ministers and laity alike as they seek how best to live out their faith.
