'A penetrating exploration of crucial differences between Christainity's incarnation of Christ and certain Hindu traditions' doctrines of Krishna-avatar', Jerry L. Walls

This book provides a rigorous investigation of the comparisons often drawn between the Krsnavatara (Krsna in his avatara state) doctrines of Sankara and Ramanaja and the incarnation of Christ as represented by classical Christian orthodoxy.

Is the Christian doctrine of Christ's incarnation similar to a Hindu doctrine of Krsnavatara? Steven Tsoukalas maintains that the perceived similarities are actually superficial. He argues that more careful consideration of epistemologies and ontologies should be undertaken when comparing theologies and soteriologies pertinent to avatara and incarnation.

Steven Tsoukalas holds a PhD in theology from the University of Birmingham, a ThM in world religions from Harvard University, and Mdiv from Gordon Conwell Seminary. He is the author of several books and articles, and has taught courses in world religions, theology, biblical studies, and cults and new religious movements.
