About "The Incarnate Word"
"This is an important contribution to our understanding of the Christology of the Fourth Gospel. It addresses an unresolved issue in the interpretation of the gospel and does so creatively and with admirable scholarship. The author has a gift for defining the issues, isolating the essential questions, and approaching them analytically. Moreover, she writes clearly and argues her case with cogency. I recommend this book with enthusiasm to anyone who might want to go to the heart of Johannine thought."^" Robert Kysar^"A tour de force. Marianne Meye Thompson takes on Ernst Kdsemann's oft-quoted conclusion that the Fourth Gospel depicts Jesus as 'God striding on the earth' and that its Christology is 'naively Docetic.' Her meticulous analysis of the humanity of Jesus in the Fourth Gospel offers fresh and balanced perspectives on the role of the signs and the Gospel's treatment of Jesus' death. From now on scholars will be unable to cite Kdsemann without responding to Thompson."^"
