    1. This Dialogue is a fascinating representation of Schleiermacher s different perspectives on the meaning of the Incarnation It may seem a bit stiff, but in consideration of the era in which Schleiermacher lived, this is quite free and joyful Schleiermacher had a uniquely sympathetic perspective on the feminine spirit and woman s contribution to the household It is interesting to read his analysis of gender roles through the conversations between the characters To study theology through a dramatic [...]


    2. An accessible introduction to some of Schleiermacher s major emphases Each character in the dialogue represents some aspect of Schleiermacher s own belief the Romantic, the dialectical, the religious, the mystical are held together and centered in Christ or human consciousness Still, a fascinating way of communicating theological truth Schleiermacher really does evoke Christmas well I wish the dialogue would make a comeback as a form of theological reflection or that there were contemporary theo [...]


    3. Enjoyable read Read it approprately on Christmas Eve on a free public domain version, which led to a fun early 1800s vocab lesson Also, this is the the first Schleiermacher I ve read I need to read by him, but I found this a helpful introduction in light of all the textbook accounts of Schleiermacher I ve read At any rate, the Christmas Eve dialogue is at once fun, touching, and theologically interesting.


    4. I don t know if it s the translation, but I found the dialogue stiff and unnatural The formal conception of the dialogue its participants, order, and location seem sound, but the result fell flat with me There is an interesting view of the incarnation and redemption being advanced but in a way that I find hard to appreciate.


    5. I too found the dialogue a little stiff Is it the translation or the time period This was one of those books I should have read in college back in the seventies I finally read it all the way through Due to illness, I spent a quiet Christmas, the perfect time to start reading it again and explore Christmas through the eyes of my German heritage.


    6. Read this quickly, but for the potential of this ideas, I didn t think the perspectives were as artfully developed and incorporated as they could have been.
