Publisher's Description

Liberal attacks on the doctrine of the divinity of Christ have led evangelicals to rightly affirm the centrality of Jesus’s divine nature for his person and work. At times, however, this defense of orthodoxy has led some to neglect Christ’s full humanity. To counteract this oversight, theologian Bruce Ware takes readers back to the biblical text, where we meet a profoundly human Jesus who struggled with many of the same difficulties and limitations we face today. Like us, he grew in faith and wisdom, tested by every temptation common to man. And like us, he too received power for godliness through the Holy Spirit, and thus serves not only as the divine Lord to be worshiped, but also the supreme Human to be followed.


This delightful study of Jesus Christ the man probes deep and complex truths with a lucid clarity designed for ordinary Christian readers. I’m tempted to say that this is Warfield’s christology re-written for the devout layperson who wants to understand Jesus better and thereby trust, obey, and love him more whole-heartedly. The discussion questions at the end of each chapter promise that the book will be used widely in churches where one of the passions is to understand historic Christian truth in a fashion that is biblically faithful and spiritually nourishing.
-D. A. Carson,
Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

This is a simple, readable, accessible, and biblical introduction to the divinity and humanity of Jesus Christ. It takes a great theologian with a pastor’s heart to boil down difficult big ideas like this.
-Mark Driscoll,
Founding and Preaching Pastor, Mars Hill Church, Seattle, Washington; Founder, Resurgence; Co-founder, Acts 29; NY Times #1 best-selling author

‘Marvel and wonder and worship.’ Bruce Ware rightly suggests that this is the appropriate response as we consider the implications of the humanity of Christ. My heart has been deeply stirred through reading this book and contemplating this oft-overlooked but vital aspect of our Savior.
-Nancy Leigh DeMoss,
author, Biblical Womanhood in the Home; radio host, Revive Our Hearts

Evangelicals who believe the Scriptures to be God’s inerrant Word run the risk of emphasizing the deity of the Lord Jesus and, quite unintentionally no doubt, deemphasizing his humanity. Bruce Ware provides a healthy antidote to this malady. This is a welcome addition to the study of christology and one that will aid in our understanding of and love for the man Christ Jesus
-Daniel L. Akin, President,
Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

In far too many instances, the church is functionally docetic, basically affirming that the divine Christ only seemed to be human. But as Bruce Ware skillfully and passionately explains, the gospel and its implications depend upon the full deity and true humanity of Jesus Christ. Biblically faithful, theologically solid, devotionally heartwarming, The Man Christ Jesus will increase your knowledge of and reverence for our wonderful Savior and Lord, the God-man Jesus Christ.
-Todd L. Miles,
Assistant Professor of Theology, Western Seminary, Portland, Oregon

Many arguments have been developed and many books have been written in defense of the full deity of the Son of God. As for arguments and writings in support of the full humanity of the Son incarnate, less attention has been given. Bruce Ware corrects this imbalance by offering a treatment that is thoroughly biblical, readable, in tune with contemporary issues, and immensely practical. As readers make their way through this book, they will not only become convinced of the humanity of the God-man and understand why the incarnation was needed; they will also be prompted to offer praise and thanksgiving to God for his wonderful work of salvation through Jesus Christ!
-Gregg R. Allison,
Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

A thoughtful, provocative work that considers the grand miracle of the one who is fully God pouring himself out to become fully man. This book will move you to contemplate and marvel at the wonder of it all.
-Mary A. Kassian,
Professor of Women's Studies, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; author, Girls Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild

The proper understanding of Christ’s humanity is absolutely essential to understanding our calling and ministry. For years I have taught the humanity of Christ, and countless numbers have said that nothing causes them to love Jesus more than a biblical understanding of his humanity. Because of this, I highly commend this book to you!
-Dann Spader,
President, Global Youth Initiative; Founder, Sonlife Ministries; author, Walking as Jesus Walked and The Everyday Commission

Ever since the church confronted Gnosticism, the reality and necessity of Christ’s humanity has been at the heart of Christian orthodoxy. Bruce Ware’s grasp and exposition of this essential doctrine contains a rigorous theological precision, communicates an attractive piety, presses the reader to investigate just how central this is to the entire spectrum of the redemptive work of the Messiah, and opens the doctrine to some thick and provocative applicatory ideas. Both ancient and right up to date, Ware’s treatment deserves a serious reading.
-Tom J. Nettles,
Professor of Historical Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; author, By His Grace and for His Glory
