Advent Book Group: On the Incarnation
Posted 10/30/2022 by The Rev. John Kennedy
“When I first opened Athanasius’ On the Incarnation, 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.”
On the Incarnation is a classic of Christian theology. Written by St. Athanasius in the fourth century, it articulates the theological vision defended at the Councils of Nicaea and Constantinople: that the Son of God became fully human so that we might become god. Its influence on all subsequent theology, East and West, makes it one of the few “must-read” books for all who want to know more about Christian faith and life.
Join us for a three-session exploration of the life and thoughts of St. Athanasius of Alexandria and his friend St. Anthony the Great, the father of desert spirituality. On the Incarnation can be purchased from the publisher (svspress.com) or Amazon as a paperback or e-book, and financial assistance is available. Please buy the Popular Patristics Series edition of On the Incarnation, published by St. Vladimir’s Press, translated by John Behr, and includes an Introduction by C.S. Lewis.
All meetings will be on Sundays in Advent (December 4, 11, 18), from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m., in the Brooks Room, and virtual participation is an option. Contact Rev. John to sign up or learn more.
