"When I first opened De Incarnatione, I soon discovered... that I was reading a masterpiece." —C.S. Lewis

The world scoffs at the idea of Jesus' incarnation. Yet, the Christian faith hinges on this very notion—God, unwilling to be a bystander, fully entering into the human experience to provide the ultimate victory over sin and death.

Athanasuis' On The Incarnation brings simple clarity to the difficult topic of Jesus' incarnation, affirming its timeless validity and relevance, and proving the character of an eternally loving God.

Athanasius of Alexandria (296-373), Egyptian bishop, church father, and Christian theologian, broached the topic of the incarnation of Jesus during the 4th century, a time when the idea of a holy deity becoming human was absolutely preposterous. Out of the chaos of his time, with only Scripture and the Spirit of God as his guide, Athanasus wrote this passionate treatise on a subject that had never been explored before.

Athanasius' words have stood the test of time and continue to provide a trustworthy guide for us today. Through On the Incarnation, the reader will discover:

  • A joyous and logical explanation of the incarnation
  • A perspective grounded in Scripture and the first teachings of the Early Church
  • A stunning description of Jesus' victory over death
  • An invitation to encounter this living, incarnate God
  • Nearly two thousand years later, Athanasuis' provocative thoughts are a breath of fresh air in a similar time of turbulence, reminding believers of the power, importance, and finality of Jesus' incarnation.
