Translated from the German original, this work is a comparative study and analysis of the incarnation as embodied in Jesus Christ and Ramakrishna.
The doctrine of the incarnation, of the divine word becoming flesh, is the real core of Christian teaching. If it was abandoned, Christianity would hardly be distinguishable from the other 'Semitic' religions, from Judaism and Islam, and there would also be danger that it would only be regarded as one of the many forms of present day humanism.
I \t has however been clear for some time now that the Christian teaching on the incarnation is not so completely unique as it had long been though to be.
The author, Hans Torwesten, who has had practical experience of religious life in India and Europe, is in an excellent position to compare both these phenomena.
