with an Introduction by C.S. Lewis

by Athanasius

On the Incar­na­tion , a new trans­la­tion and intro­duc­tion by John Behr, Pref­ace by C.S. Lewis By any stan­dard, this is a clas­sic of Chris­t­ian the­ol­o­gy. Com­posed by St. Athana­sius in the fourth cen­tu­ry, it expounds with sim­plic­i­ty the the­o­log­i­cal vision defend­ed at the coun­cils of Nicaea and Con­stan­tino­ple: that the Son of God him­self became ful­ly human, so that we might become god.” Its influ­ence on all Chris­t­ian the­ol­o­gy there­after, East and West, ensures its place as one of the few must read” books for all who want to know more about the Chris­t­ian faith.
