A brief review of On the Incarnation by St. Athanasius

Jump to Comments

I don’t believe any individual of the post-apostolic age has had as large an impact on the universal Christian church as Athanasius of Alexandria.  On the Incarnation is one of his most notable works.  I had to read this book for my Historical Theology class at Christus Rex Study Center and lecture on it for the class. (The outline of that lecture can be found here.)  The Incarnation was central to Athanasius’s thinking and his exposition of it in this book was crucial in shaping the Christian doctrine of the Incarnation.  You can read the book in its entirety at the Christian Classic Ethereal Library. Grade: A+
