From leading theologian Stephen Wellum comes a systematic summary of Christology from a biblical and historical perspective. God the Son Incarnate, a contribution to the Foundations of Evangelical Theology series, explains the epistemological, biblical, and ecclesiological warrants for faith in Jesus Christ, building to the ultimate conclusion that Christ is God the Son incarnate and the most important figure in the fullness of God's work.
Wellum's treatment of the development of the doctrine of Christ offers the church a brilliant introduction and survey of the crucial components of robust evangelical Christology. He not only lays out the biblical data that grounds the church's Christology, but also leads readers—seminarians, pastors, scholars, and lay readers alike—to discover afresh how to know Jesus Christ and to proclaim him as he truly is, the Lord of Glory who is life eternal.

"Wellums treatment of this glorious subject is comprehensive in scope and is marked by precision, clarity, biblical fidelity, and a close acquaintance with the centuries of discussion surrounding it. It is the most helpful book on Christology Ive read, and it is a pleasure to commend it to you!" — Fred G. Zaspel, Pastor, Reformed Baptist Church, Franconia, Pennsylvania
"In lucid prose, Wellum lays out the contours of a responsible Christology by tracing the arguments of the New Testament through the determinative early centuries of the Christian church, using such discussion as the jumping-off point for broader theological reflection. This is now the handbook to give to theology students and other Christians who want to understand how confessional orthodoxy regarding the doctrine of Christ developed. Highly recommended." —D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School; Cofounder, The Gospel Coalition
"This is a clear, comprehensive, and compelling study. It shows Christology to be like a fabric made up of many threads all tightly woven together, a doctrine with presuppositions, connections, and consequences for the age in which we live. This doctrine is here seen in its wholeness, and that is what makes this study so theologically wholesome. It is fresh and excellent." —David F. Wells, Distinguished Senior Research Professor, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
Exploring our Lords person and work from a variety of angles, Wellum engages a wide range of issues and conversation partners. Consolidating the gains of evangelical Christological reflection, this volume makes gains of its own, particularly by wrestling clearly and carefully with contemporary trends in biblical studies as well as philosophical, systematic, and historical theology. —Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California; author, Core Christianity: Finding Yourself in God's Story
