Nothing except the Resurrection of Jesus Christ is a greater miracle or wonder in human history. God becoming flesh in human history is the greatest marvel. Jesus of Nazareth was foretold in the Torah and the Prophets centuries before his appearance, and he was proved to be real and not a pretender due to his death and Resurrection. The early church grappled with all of this intellectually. Many heresies were confronted, answered, and dismissed. Throughout the 2,000-plus years of church history, many of the early church heresies have reappeared over and over again. Whether you are Catholic or Protestant, the answers are from the Word of God.

    " I had this on my shelf for a long time. Then I read it. I thought to myself, "eh." But that was before I did a thorough-going investigation of Origen's Christology and was seduced by his subordinationism, and before I did the same with other work before Nicaea and appreciated the unadorned pre-Nicean Christology. In these I found a neat and tidy refutation of Sabellianism, a faithfulness to apostolic tradition and Scripture that seemed elegant. Then I read Athanasius again and realized what had been at stake all along. This was not the unnecessary fettering of the Christian faith in Platonic categories; this was the Christian faith finally expressed. A masterful work to which we owe the coherence of the Trinitarian doctrine. "

    " Great Christmas read....Immanuel, God with us! Athanasius does a wonderful job of explaining Christ's mission and His deity and humanity. Eminently readable. "

    " I never expected a work on the incarnation written in the 4th century to be so accessible. I guess a good bit of credit goes to the translator; it felt like I was reading a contemporary author, excepting the arguments that wouldn't necessarily seem pertinent today. I think this should be the first read for anyone wanting to understand the reasoning behind Christ's incarnation. I found a few arguments to have a bit of faulty logic, but as a whole the work is excellent, and paints a vivid picture of an early church perspective on the subject. "

    " This is a hard one for me to "rank". The writing is many hundreds of years old, so it takes a while to get into the flow. The whole book was really just justification for a particular theological perspective, rather than any real "meat". If what a reader wants is a hard-core apologist defense of the political/theological view that eventually held sway back in the 4th and 5th centuries regarding emerging Christianity, this is probably a good book to read. What made it particularly difficult was that many (or most) of the arguments that cited more ancient scripture were dramatic stretches of interpretation if not massive re-interpretation of what seems to be the earlier meaning. I love reading G-d books though, so it was worth trying. If you like them too, give it a try and see what you think. If nothing fun, the ancient style is interesting. "

    " Great for the Christmas season! Be sure to catch the intro by C.S. Lewis. I found that a good amount of my favorite Lewis quotes come from said introduction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Coats | 1/30/2014

    " Fantastic. I only wish I'd read this years ago. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 1/18/2014

    " Clear, concise, and strong. St. Athanasius deserves his reputation as a fearless shepherd of orthodoxy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brad Hoff | 1/17/2014

    " (The version I read did not have the foreword by Dr. Tom Morris, but by C.S. Lewis) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tyler Hurst | 11/26/2013

    " I have read few books with a higher orthodox Christology than Athanasuis. Love this book! "

    " Very sublime. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bliss Spillar IV | 11/11/2013

    " Wonderful, rich and perfect for Advent/Christmas time. Will be something I read every year during the Christmas season. "

    " Gleaned some insights, but ultimately couldn't finish. "

    " Good. Need to reread. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon | 7/6/2013

    " My favorite book in the curriculum! I distinctly remember reading it out loud on the way back to school from Thanksgiving Break. So powerful and profound. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lonnie Smith | 4/27/2013

    " Amazing that a book written by a kid of 16 or 17, is still central in Christian theology, and relevant 1700 years later. Take your time and read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rick Dobrowolski | 4/4/2013

    " Great treatment of the incarnation of Christ. His sections on refuting arguments against the incarnation are wonderful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan Halčák | 1/5/2013

    " A must read for anyone who considers them self a Christian or to those inquiring as to the true of Christianity, the Incarnation. "

    " Read again in Spring, 2010. "
