Jan 31, 2022: Incarnational Spirituality

Robert E. Webber

Confusion over spirituality may be found in the failure to understand the implications of the incarnation. When the humanity of Christ is overemphasized, spirituality concentrates almost exclusively on personal experience. When Christ’s divinity is overemphasized, spirituality concentrates on the otherworldly. The hope for the future lies in the recovery of an incarnational spirituality that affirms both our experience of the other world and our experience of this world.
