Mounting a defense for Christ's full humanity, David Brown refocuses scholarly attention to Christ's incarnation as the "self-emptying" of his divinity. By tracing the historical development of kenotic Christologies, Brown exposes the impact of the English and Scottish contributions to contemporary interpretations of Christ's divine-human nature. Addressing the declining popularity of kenotic Christologies, Brown argues for the existence of under-acknowledged yet rich strains of thought that deal not only with the person and divinity of Christ but with the Triune God as well. At times controversial, Divine Humanity expertly repositions kenosis at the center of Christological discussions.
