"Jesus the practical Mystic, glowing with God and yet stooping in loving service to men, is Strength Incarnate."

reminds me of one of the things David Bosch says about the way Jesus (the incarnation) undermines dualism....he says that on the cross Jesus was at the same time most earthly and most heavenly - profoundly spiritual and undeniably worldly.
these things are a deep challenge to the view that somehow spirit and flesh are incompatible. thank God for ESJ and Bosch who offer important correctives to our (my!) dualism.
