The six chapters address perichoresis as a christological category, the anhypostasia-enhypostasia distinction, whether Christ had a fallen nature, kenosis, and non-incarnational Christology. Divinity and Humanity is an intricate and, at times, quite difficult, collection of chapters. So Crisp wants to avoid theological or philosophical squishiness. And since he is an analytical theologian—who thus looks for clarity of language and analysis—I wondered about how univocally Crisp believes he can speak about God.
Analytical tools may promise too much. How do we know this contraction in human terms is also directly applicable to God? Can God both be described as omnipotent, but in that power decide to limit it? In private conversation, I know he is aware of the issues of univocal or analogical language and the attendant theme of mystery , but I find quibbles in places with his willingness to stick to the power of human philosophical analysis where a certain ambiguity is left in the biblical witness.
The second and third chapters address the human nature of Christ. Incidentally, one byproduct of such discussions in this book is that the reader quickly learns some unknown theological vocabulary and territory.
The anhypostasia-enhypostasia distinction is the topic of Chapter Three. Ultimately, Crisp leans toward a three-part Christology, which also makes the best sense to me in order to sustain the Chalcedonian declaration that Christ is fully human and fully divine.
