The incarnation is the missing key in evangelical thought. The incarnate Word does not merely “step into history.” The Word becomes humanity, time, space, and history to rescue creatures and creation. . . . There is no story in all the universe comparable to the narrative of the biblical God who enters our suffering and death to overcome it and win back his creation. It is a story worth dying for.
