    1. 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 individuallybut 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 the h [...]


    2. 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.


    3. 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.


    4. 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.
