Michael O'Brien
While probably not well known by many Christians, St. Athanasius is probably the single most influential Christian theologian and thinker who contested the Arian heresy. Had he not done so, it is quite likely that Christianity today would look much different than it does. Arianism was a slow creep back to the polytheism that Christianity was superseding, and St. Athanasius recognized it as such, combatting it doggedly in a series of books, dissertations, and letters contained in this book. I’d l ...more

Athanasius was a bulldog when it came to Jesus, utterly refusing to let go of Christ's divinity. His was a life spent in struggle and exile that yielded great treasure for the church. ...more

Very handy compilation of select Works and letters of Athanasius the Great. Robertson decided to organize the material in a generally chronology way, which is quite helpful inasmuch as one agreed with him on the chronology. At times the chronological settings led him to separate documents that were appended with some works.
My main gripe against this volume was the setting of the text itself. The very small fonts and the columns made for a very slow reading. It is time for a new edition.

This is a collection of, pretty much all, the works and letters of Athanasius, the great theologian and defender of the Trinity in the early church. Confession: I did not read the entire book word for word. I read a few treatises closely while skimming others. Perhaps I should review the specific treatises individually...but I just thought this was easier.

Two works stand out: On the Incarnation of the Word and The Life of Antony. Each of these is five star, must reads for anyone interested in th

Recommends it for: Everyone who believe and don't believe in Jesus Christ
Every Christian who wants to be informed about Christology ought to read this monumental compilation.
The health of our theology would improved just by making reference, sermons, and adding to our teaching what he wrote about the Divinity of Jesus Christ including the exaltation of mankind because of His incarnation and ascension.

I come once again to those books where I am not nearly qualified to review nor spend enough time in detailed reading to review. These free PDFs available online and are excellent resources for those interested in the church fathers and definitely an excellent resource for those studying anything to do with the period. These few words will have to suffice.

“The Council of Nicæa. An ecumenical council was a new experiment. Local councils had long since grown to be a recognised organ of the Church both for legislation and for judicial proceedings. But no precedent as yet prescribed, no ecclesiastical law or theological principle had as yet enthroned, the ‘General Council’ as the supreme expression of the Church’s mind.” 0 likes
