“I’m trying to believe in reincarnation,” wrote my best friend from high school, when we were two years out from graduation and trying to figure it all out. If I’d had my wits about me—they were pretty scattered back then—I would have written back, “Let’s talk about incarnation.”
While celebrating Christmas as hard as it can, the world doesn’t think much about this doctrine. It’s very strange—nothing like it. And yet there’s nothing so oddly resonant, both in Scripture and in history.
