Incarnation and Incarnational Thinking

(p.1) Introduction
Hasidism Incarnate

Shaul Magid

Stanford University Press

The Introduction sets out the basic argument regarding the development of Hasidism outside the Christian gaze. It also deals extensively with the question of comparison, in particular the use of nomenclature in the discussion of two disparate traditions. That is, that by using terms like “incarnation” that are not used by Hasidim nor commonly used to describe their doctrines, we can sometimes gain new insight on what Hasidism may be up to. The Introduction further sets out a trajectory of Israelite/Jewish monotheism that is far more complex and messy than we normally think about when we think about Jewish monotheism. That is, it tries to create a more fluid interchange between Judaism and Christianity (both emerging from Ancient Israelite Religion) in their formative periods that is then used to explicate later Hasidic texts.
