Summary
"If Jesus is Son of God incarnate, as Christians usually claim, inescapable metaphysical questions arise, running from the relationship of human to divine nature in this particular case through to the significance of created reality as such in the light of the Trinity, questions quite often evaded even by committed believers. In these robustly conducted reflections, Thomas Joseph White convincingly demonstrates, in conversation with theologians of our own day, the radical challenge that Thomas Aquinas continues to make to the debate - a wonderful book!"--Back Jacket cover.
