THE WORD BECAME FLESH by Millard Erickson The church first answered conflicts over the deity and humanity of Christ at the Council of Chalcedon in 451. But Millard Erickson finds Chalcedon's definition too narrow and negative a response to the 'Christs' of liberation, feminism, blackness, functionalism, universalism, and postmodern theologies, among others. There must be a new Chalcedon - a doctrine that confesses what Jesus is not, but also affirms all that He is. The Word Became Flesh returns the theological discussion to what Christ said about himself and what Scripture deems important to stress. MILLARD J. ERICKSON is a research professor of theology at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He recieved his Ph.D. from Northwestern University and did postdoctoral study at the University of Munich. Among his numerous writings are Christian Theology, Introducing Christian Doctrine, and Where is Theology Going?
