Heavenly Bodies : Incarnation, the Gaze, and Embodiment in Christian Theology

Does Christianity scorn our bodies? Friedrich Nietzsche thought so, and many others since him have thought the same. Ola Sigurdson contends, to the contrary, that Christianity — understood properly — in fact affirms human embodiment.

Presenting his constructive contributions to theology in relation to both historical and contemporary conceptions of the body, Sigurdson begins by investigating the anthropological implications of the doctrine of the incarnation. He then delves into the concept of the gaze and discusses a specifically Christian “gaze of faith” that focuses on God embodied in Jesus. Finally, he weaves these strands into a contemporary Christian theology of embodiment.
