Is the Christian doctrine of Christ's incarnation similar to a Hindu doctrine of Krsnavatara? This book provides a rigorous investigation of the comparisons often drawn between the Krsnavatara (Krsna in his avatara state) doctrines of Sankara and Ramanuja and the incarnation of Christ as represented by classical Christian orthodoxy. Tsoukalas maintains that the perceived similarities are actually superficial. He argues that more careful consideration of epistemologies and ontologies should be undertaken when comparing theologies and soteriologies pertinent to avatara and incarnation.
