In the literature of this vast and compelling subject, A. B. Bruce's great book, The Humiliation of Christ stands alone and apart.
Spoken of as having "won for himself the foremost place among Christian apologists" in the nineteenth century. A. B. Bruce crowned his New Testament studies (which included such famous books as The Training of the Twelve, and St. Paul's Conception of Christianity, etc.) with this brilliantly impressive study of a subject which he especially was equipped to write.
Here Bruce employs the teaching of Scripture, as it deepens and sharpens our perceptions of the sufferings of our Lord, to form dynamic as well as correct views of Christ's person experience, and work; and having complete grasp of the relevant literature, ancient, modern, and that of his own contemporaries, he acts as a reliable and sure guide in the criticism of the various theories of Christ as Lord and Redeemer. A book every advanced student of the New Testament will cherish.
