What is matter, and why does it matter to Christianity? Metaphysics begins with the question of how matter is related to form, and this question is of utmost importance for the Christian doctrine of creation as well as the incarnation. A Christian understanding of the metaphysics of matter must begin with Christology, but Christology itself is deeply implicated in any theory of matter. The purpose of this book is to construct a materialistic metaphysics on a firm Christological foundation. Only in this way can justice be done to the logic entailed in the proposition that Jesus Christ is the eternal God.
