About (from the publisher)

Based on the Duffy Lectures, an annual lecture series at Boston College, this book explores the concept of "Deep Incarnation," a way of making connections between incarnation and the whole of creation. Author Denis Edwards, who was an international authority on the dialogue between science and faith, draws upon the work of Niels Gregersen, Elizabeth Johnson, and others to address this question: "What relationship is there between the wider natural world -- the world of galaxies and stars, mountains and seas, bacteria, plants and animals -- and the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ?"
