"My dear Brother:
The key to good Lutheran theology is the doctrine of the Incarnation. Often I have told students, worried about the miracles, to concentrate first, completely, and humbly on the miracle of miracles, the decisive touchstone of all Christian dogma — the dogmatic, ringing, even arrogant affirmation of the In carnation, of the simple yet infinitely mysterious fact that the Nazarene carpenter, the friend of little children, was also the Son of God, the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, the Alpha and Omega of life and time and history and eternity."
