A Celtic Christology
The Incarnation according to John Scottus Eriugena
by John F. Gavin
John F. Gavin’s study is a brilliantly lucid exploration of Eriugena’s theology and its relevance to our times – especially in its treatment of the incarnation, participative Christology (i.e. theosis or deification), and in setting out a thrilling environmental theology that reveals Christ and Creation’s heart…Gavin notes that ‘poetry has a greater power to inspire reflection than a theological treatise.’ His own treatise reveals poetic skill in weaving a weft of many colours of the meadow flowers to the long and deep warp.
