Flesh and Blood
A Dogmatic Sketch Concerning the Fallen Nature View of Christ’s Human Nature
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"When 'the Word became flesh,' did he take a fallen human nature? From doctoral dissertations to popular blogs, the debate goes on--often creating more confusion than clarity. In Flesh and Blood, Dan Cameron listens carefully to both sides while mounting a concise, incisive, and irenic defense of prominent theologian Thomas F. Torrance's 'fallenness' view against the critiques of 'unfallenness' proponents, especially Oliver Crisp."
--E. Jerome Van Kuiken, Oklahoma Wesleyan University
"In Flesh and Blood, Cameron skillfully sets the contemporary voices of T. F. Torrance and Oliver Crisp in conversation about the ancient insight of Gregory of Nazianzus--namely, that what our Lord has not assumed he has not healed. With concision and clarity, Cameron demonstrates that the ontology of the incarnation grounds the reality of redemption, arguing that in the mystery of the Word made flesh, Jesus Christ sinlessly assumed our fallen humanity."
--John C. Clark, Associate Professor of Theology, Moody Bible Institute; co-author of The Incarnation of God
"Cameron has provided a much needed, clear, reliable, and fair overview of the issues involved in the discussion and debate over Torrance's view of Christ's assumption of our fallen humanity. Backed by extensive research into Torrance's writings and his key interpreters and offering an informed and charitable presentation of key critics, this work advances the discussion admirably."
