In Incarnation and Inspiration Alan Spence looks at the theology of John Owen, examining Owen's efforts to integrate the concepts of incarnation and inspiration into one coherent Christology. Owen offers a solution to this most intractable of christological dilemmas through his idea that the divine Son acted on his own human nature indirectly and by means of the Holy Spirit. The foundation of the Spirit's distinctive work is thereby the renewal of the image of God through the humanity of Christ. Spence's study raises such questions as: can a Christology which affirms the distinct operation of Christ's two natures successfully maintain the unity of his personal action? Is nature or ontological language too static to model the dynamic reality of Christ? Can the actions of God be indivisible if the Son relates to the Father as to one who is other than himself? Finally Spence grounds the discussion in more general terms by assessing the significance of Owen's Christology in relation to the Definition of Chalcedon and to modern theology. --From publisher's description.
