Publisher's Description

Mounting a defense for Christ's full humanity, David Brown refocuses scholarly attention to Christ's incarnation as the "self-emptying" of his divinity. By tracing the historical development of kenotic Christologies, Brown exposes the impact of the English and Scottish contributions to contemporary interpretations of Christ's divine-human nature. Addressing the declining popularity of kenotic Christologies, Brown argues for the existence of under-acknowledged yet rich strains of thought that deal not only with the person and divinity of Christ but with the Triune God as well. At times controversial, Divine Humanity expertly repositions kenosis at the center of Christological discussions.

He is the author or editor of several books, including God and Mystery in Words: Experience through Metaphor and Drama and God and Grace of Body: Sacrament in Ordinary.

Editorial Reviews

Brown has taken on one of the most intractable and important aspects of doctrine, where no ultimately satisfactory solution has yet to be given. As a constructive work it is brave, and as a historical survey it is unlikely to be bettered for a generation.


… an important contribution to historical and philosophical theology.


Brown's writing is effortless and engaging, suitable for students to scholars. The book is a must read for anyone interested in kenotic Christianity or those concerned in the development and history of doctrine.
