Joshua D. Genig completed a doctorate in systematic theology at the University of St. Andrews. He is assistant professor of historical theology and director of master’s programs (lay ministry) at SS. Cyril & Methodius Seminary in Orchard Lake, Michigan, as well as former pastor of the Lutheran Church of the Ascension and St. John Lutheran Church. Viva Vox is based on a dissertation written in systematic theology under the direction of David W. Brown.
In failing to take the sacramentality of the word of God seriously, the preaching of the church has suffered negative consequences, particularly failing to bring about divine participation with Jesus? corporeal humanity in his living word. In order to recover this sacramental reality, this volume argues that one should consider the annunciation to Mary as the paradigm of the corporeal Christ taking up residence in the flesh of his hearer and delivering the fullness of the Godhead.
