On the Incarnation of the Word is a classic work of Orthodox theology written by noted bishop of Alexandria, St. Athanasius. In this apologetic treatise, St. Athanasius defends the incarnation of Christ against the derision of 4th century non-believers. St Athanasius explains why God chose to approach his fallen people in human form. He resolves the paradox of the Incarnate by relying heavily on both Scripture and the teachings of the early Church. St. Athanasius also answers several objections to his account, many of which are still raised against Christians today by those outside the Church. On the Incarnation of the Word was highly recommended by modern writer and Christian apologist, C.S. Lewis, who suggested that contemporary Christian audiences could benefit from reading more ancient classics. Indeed, though St. Athanasius wrote this text in the 4th century, his style is easy to follow and his concepts are of irreplaceable worth. -Emmalon Davis, CCEL Staff Writer

PRODUCT DETAIL

Athanasius

Athanasius (c.297-373), was born at Alexandria, Egypt, around AD 297, and would serve for forty-five years as that city's bishop, having begun as a bishop's assistant at the Council of Nicaea in AD 325. Athanasius spent seventeen years of his tenure in exile, having provoked several Roman emperors with his unflinching defense of the doctrine of the Trinity. Athanasius was one of the most brilliant and influential theologians in Christian history, and is venerated across all the major streams of the faith - Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Coptic, and mainline Protestant. He is remembered for his writings, still read today, his great pastoral concern, his courageous faithfulness despite immense opposition, and his profound interest in monasticism.
