The Word

August 1948
America;8/7/1948, Vol. 79 Issue 18, p414
The author reflects on the implications of the incarnation of God for mankind. He comments on a statement about the descent of God to the level of man and the elevation of man to the level of God in "Travelbook of a Philosopher," by Count Hermann Keyserling. He notes that the teaching that God became a man means that the responsibilities as well as the moral standards of men have been increased. He argues that the primary purpose of the incarnation was to elevate mankind to the level of the divine life.
