From the Publisher:
"On the Incarnation: Saint Athanasius (English), With an Introduction by C.S. Lewis

Popular Patristics Series Volume 44B

"When I first opened his De Incarnatione I soon discovered I was reading a masterpiece... for only a master mind could have written so deeply on a subject with such classical simplicity." -C.S. Lewis, from the Introduction

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.

We are pleased to offer this new translation, with a full introduction. This book is also available from SVS Press with the original Greek text presented on the facing page.

The V. Rev. Dr John Behr is the Dean of St Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary, Professor of Patristics, and Editor of the Popular Patristics Series. Other SVS Press books by Fr John are The Way to Nicaea, The Nicene Faith (2 vols.), and The Mystery of Christ."
