Review:

Wendy Farley's book is a work that is both an academic and engrossing look at the Theology of Incarnation from the outside in—looking at the disenfranchised she discourses about community, she opens the door to the subject that the very nature of Incarnation is that it is a doctrine of radical acceptance and inclusion, how can it possibly be otherwise.

Using the experiences of feminists and others she identifies where we fail to see wisdom incarnated, where we overlook the radical dimensions we are called to reflect and take on within ourselves to truly embody the doctrine of Incarnation within our faith community.

This is a strong book and one that  is a definite must read for anyone wanting to really reflect on the nature of the incarnation and the idea of Wisdom, Divinity and Humanity.
