On the Incarnation - by Athanasius

Ask most Christians who Athanasius was and most people will give you a blank stare as if they have no idea what you are talking about. This is because sadly most churches don't bother to teach any church history. I have taught on Athanasius a number of times at my church so I was glad to discover the book, St. Athanasius- On The Incarnation.

I found a review of the book and would like to share some of it here:

On the Incarnation - by Athanasius
Book Review by Tom Wood

A mere 71 pages in length (approachable for non-readers and
readers alike), On the Incarnation of the Word of God is worth going
through slowly, pencil in hand.

Interestingly, this book was written by Athanasius before either the Arian
heresy or the Council of Nicea were
even heard of. The fact that it is such a
clear articulation of the divinity of Christ
and His pre-eminence as the creator of
all things speaks to the importance of
being saturated with Biblical thinking
before storms arise.

I would like to add my comment at this point: Anyone who has studied Church history and understands how many people twist church history to teach or deny truth will understand why that point is so important!

You can read the entire review at this link:

If you would like to order the book follow this link:

As always feel free to purchase me a copy of the book as well :)

Have a great Saturday.
