Kryptic Model of the Incarnation, Hardback (December 2014)
Being divine seems to entail being omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent, but the New Testament portrays Jesus as having human properties. It seems logically impossible that any single individual could possess such mutually exclusive sets of properties.
Speaking of God in Thomas Aquinas and Meister Eckhart, Hardback (July 2014)» View all books by Professor James A. Beckford
Going beyond ordinary readings of Aquinas and building a foundation for further insights into the works of both theologians, this book draws out the implications of the thought of Eckhart and Aquinas for contemporary issues, including ecumenical and inter-religious dialogue, liturgy and prayer, and religious inclusivity.
